Expat Life: FASEC International Food Festival

When Cuenca’s biggest fundraising event of the year involves delicious food from all over the world, you know we’re gonna be there!

Recently we attended the 25th Annual International Food Festival at Mall del Rio. The event supports FASEC, a non-profit, volunteer organization providing palliative and hospice care for patients with cancer and other chronic illnesses.

Thousands of attendees feasted on food from Argentina, Chile, Columbia, France, Germany, Italy, Mexico, Spain, Switzerland, and the United States.

Veteran patrons like us know to head straight to the dessert table for the best selection. Several of these yummy treats came home with us!

You can’t have a food event in Cuenca without a roasted pig!

Count on the USA booth to be grilling barbecue ribs every year. It’s fun to think back to 2010 when we helped establish this tradition and our country participated for the first time.

Argentina was cooking sides of deliciousness gaucho style over an open fire.

Baked goods--German specialties--sushi--crepes--what a selection. FASEC raised a LOT of money and we went home stuffed, happy, and ready for a nap!
