It seems that Huffington Post writer Rupert Parker was bowled over by Ecuadorian flavors at a recent dinner in London.  So bowled over, in fact, that he said, “I really do think that the culinary traditions of Ecuador are ripe for an international audience.”  Look out Peru?  Maybe not just yet.

Ecuadorian may not be the next “big thing” (yet),  but there’s no doubt that people want more and more South American flavors.  Acid.  Heat.  Fat.  And so on.  It’s basically a no-brainer, but South America, on the whole, has it figured out.  There’s good eating down here, and it’s still exotic to most of the world, even to many parts of the countries that are promoting their own cuisine.  Peru is still the clear forerunner in bringing its flavors to the masses, but as more diners / writers  like Rupert Parker put the word out, countries like Ecuador can certainly start getting in line.  [via Huffington Post]
