Sancocho –Colombia’s national soup and the signature dish at Gil’s Kitchen in Charlotte. Broth, potatoes, potato-like yucca, carrot and plantain chunks, and bits of onion simmer together for hours. Chicken or oxtail cook separately til spoon-tender. Minutes before serving, Maria adds the meat plus corn-on-the-cob and a sprinkle of cilantro. On a separate plate there’s a hillock of white rice to spoon into the soup, as well as a salad. It’s a comforting meal for a spring day.
