To learn a little more about its gastronomy, we have a stop in Cayambe to have a cup of coffee or Ecuadorian chocolate with a small dessert called Bizcochos; which are like a type of small breads baked in the oven with an incomparable flavor and best of all, we will go inside to see its elaboration process.
