Thank You, And Welcome To Como Sur

Como Sur

My name is Patrick Hieger and I am the founder and editor-in-chief of Como Sur.  As of today, the website is exactly three months old and I couldn’t be happier about how far it has come in such a short amount of time.  I began the site with one goal: to become the definitive source for the latest gastronomy news in South America.  And, I’m happy to say, we’re getting there.

Books I Won’t Read

Okay, maybe I will read them. But I’ll probably spend as much time looking, holding, and admiring these little books instead of analyzing their content. Right now, I’m loving the Short Stack series recently featured on Buzzfeed.
