The Best Fiambre in the World

The Best Fiambre in the World

Really. Honest. Well, maybe.

Certainly this is one of the most exotic dishes in the Guatemalan cuisine menu.

This picture is dedicated to Manolo who is having a hard time finding fiambre in Toronto. This fiambre picture is also dedicated to all those Guatemalans living abroad, who today will be missing the fiambre and all the stuff that comes with it. For those of you crazy enough, I made a close-up fiambre wallpaper (1600×1200) for you computer. Believe it or not, I feel for you all.

I don’t know why the word salad brings all kinds of vegetables to mind. Fiambre is a salad, but it mostly has meats, all kinds: sausages, hams, chicken, sea food, meats pork and beef. It is Domino’s or Pizza Hut that has a meat lover’s pizza with a mere 5 meat. Move over meat lover’s pizza; fiambre has over 25 meats.

If you want to see how this meal is prepared, check out last year’s fiambre slide show.

We will continue with the kite flying rituals and meaning tomorrow. Stay tune!

    But why a blue onion? why? I ask… shrimp looks like a nice touch, being a tropical country and all. Thanks for the dedication and looking forward to the kite postings.

    Manolo, well the blue onion is for looks. Remember presentation is half the job.

    One Way, fiambre is colorful and tasteful too.

    Sompopo, I thought this is the kind of salad you’d like.

    Bea, I hope this image brought some pleasant memories.

    Lessie, it tasted better than what it looked.

    Ale, that is exactly what I meant by “… and all the stuff that comes with it.”

    Well, I moved to the Netherlands in August (I’m Guatemalan) and I actually made fiambre for my international friends yesterday.. and, they all loved it! =) So there, tradition does not have to end just because you’re not home! This dish is the best food ever!!

    I did The Best Fiambre in The World (compared only to Antigua’s… jajaja) and everyone loved it as well.

    I took a recipe from mother’s than in time… has motivated me to include on my book once completed… tapas style. I don’t think most people will be very patient to follow original.

    This recipe will be very useful to those that enjoy Guatemalan Cuisine all over the world… and that when visiting our homeland, find it heart warming. Think of it as a Sunday brunch at San Lucas.

    Thanks for the photos!
