A Tale of Two Cites: Medellín and Bogotá. Bogotá is cold, the people are very traditional, 10 million of them! Medellín; A party town, warm (a.k.a. The City of Eternal Spring), party population 3 million. Most of my family came out of Medellín and its surroundings. Both cities have completely different cuisines. A couple of my uncles moved to Bogotá (I guess they like cold weather), married and stayed. My uncle Tulio married Inés and had 10 children. "Inecita", as we called her, was a great cook and her signature recipe was "Papas Chorreadas" which she would always make for me when my parents and I rolled into town. Here is my favorite recipe from my sweet Aunt Inecita.
