First, rice with annatto, salt, garlic and, if desired, some seasoning is precooked. Separately, an accompaniment is prepared, it can be a stew of pork, chicken, creole hen or even a delicious combination of these. Then a vegetable salad with carrot, onion, scallion, to which you can add potatoes, eggplant, peas, capers and olives is made. And especially in a leaf of bijao mixes the precooked rice, the accompaniment and the vegetable salad.

Finally the bijao is tied in such a way that no ingredient is allowed to escape and cooked in a pot of seasoned water. This may take between two to three hours to prepare this delicious dish and is not at all easy, because it has its science, you can try it or just let yourself be seduced by the smells and flavors of the Cartagena's Pastel Festival, which this year reaches its version number 30. A cook of this festival admits that the secret to get a good Pastel, is closely related to humor and love of the preparer, in other words "It's a matter of love and joy".

A Pastel costs between 10 and 17 thousand Colombian Pesos and anyone who wants to try this delicious dish can approach, between 10 a.m. and 9 p.m., at Parque de la Marina until December 25, when this version of the Festival closes. Do not miss it!
