We asked for some inspiration from South America, and, with entries from Peru, Colombia, Bolivia, Chile, and Brazil, we definitely got it.
But we had to choose one winner, and kept going back to a beautiful bowl of soup. Our winning entry comes from pauletteh86, who uploaded this gorgeous photo of mondongo, a traditional Colombian soup that includes pork, chorizo, tripe, potatoes, cilantro, avocado, and cumin. She also uploaded a Food Memory that elaborated on this dish—not a requirement of the contest, but we loved reading about her own personal relationship (or “affair,” as she calls it) with mondongo.
Felicidades, Paulette! She wins a copy of Lonely Planet’s inspirational 1,000 Ultimate Experiences book, courtesy of Lonely Planet. Thanks to everyone who entered!
