Central American Cooking Terms/Dishes

Sweet Willie | Jan 30, 2003 09:36 AM

I’m stumped, has there been a thread on Central American cooking terms/items I’ve missed?

The following words were gleamed from the thread on Restaurant Oaxaca and I sure would appreciate a brief description of what they are. If there are some terms/dishes that are prevalent in Central American cooking that I have not posted (I can only imagine there are many) please post those as well, I can only guess there are others who would appreciate this information as much as I will.

Thanks in advanced,

Willie
