While many cultures celebrate All Saints' Day, Guatemala is the only country to celebrate with fiambre, a special composed salad of up to 50 ingredients (chicken, sausage, capers, gherkins, beets, asparagus, palm tree blossoms, and more) that families spend days preparing. It originated from the practice of visiting the graves of relatives with food offerings—over time, the dozens of smaller dishes evolved into a single enormous cold salad. With a dish this large and complex, you need little else to round out your feast than fresh Guatemalan-style bread and celebratory drinks. See the menu »
