I’m overwhelmed by beautiful memories of my grandmother and her recipe book whenever I write for you. I’m overfilled with joy and it inspires me to continue what I do. There are recipes that an important part of my family history and one of them is arroz pintado, a colorful creation that should never be absent on your dinner table. The texture, color and taste make this dish incredibly special. It’s name, arroz pintado (literally “painted rice”), comes from the its colorful ingredients, like peppers, corn and yellow raisins all mixed with mayo and olive oil. This dish is served cold alongside any type of meat or fish.
