ARANGO NAVARRO, Fernando Aquiles. Glutton Tomás Carrasquilla. Rev. Lasallista Investig. [online]. 2008, vol.5, n.1, pp.65-71. ISSN 1794-4449.

Colombian author Tomás Carrasquilla worked in, besides showing several aspects of Antioquian daily life, describing the food and beverages that were most common in his time. He was first classified as a "costumbrista", under a pejorative consideration and taken as a province writer, Carrasquilla was claimed an important author by Kurt Levy, in the ninety fifties, in his PhD thesis written in Canada. This work about Carrasquilla, who was born in Santo Domingo, Antioquia, was translated into Spanish in 1958. Carrasquilla has several references to the food and the beverages used in Antioquia, fact that allows the conclusion that he was a fan of regional gastronomy. His texts show that he loved chocolate, arepas (corn cakes) stuffed pork, beans and bacon, chorizos (sausages), morcilla (pork intestine filled with blood, rice and spices), Christmas food, candies and, in general, all of the cultural expressions related to gastronomy.

Keywords : Carrasquilla; Costumbrista (Local under cultural terms); Gastronomy.Chocolate; Arepa.
