Why I Love This Recipe

The first time we tasted pudin di coco when we visited Curaçao. In Curaçao the national language is Dutch, but Papiamento is also widely spoken as well as English. Curaçao is located 40 miles north of Venezuela and is 38 miles long and 7½ miles wide. The 17th century buildings in her capital Willemstad reminds the visitor of Amsterdam.
