Chip, chip...chipa!!! ð Wait, you don't know what chipa is? Let us introduce you to this small but tasty bread because Chipa is clearly more than just a food. It is a shared history and one we can celebrate together. Not surprising, food often transcends national boundaries. We have been eating long before the established nation-state. At UNESCO, we seek to find the opportunities that unite us in a common appreciation of the good things that life can bring. Today, Paraguay, the northeast region of Argentina, Uruguay, Southeastern Bolivia and Southwestern Brazil are blessed with the Chipa, a shared culinary heritage that according to some food historians dates back to early human settlements in the region and is credited to the indigenous Guarani people. Chipa is an ideal accompaniment to coffee and other beverages or any breakfast food. It is made from cassava starch, an ingredient typical to the region, along with the Yaboti Biosphere Reserve in Argentina. The cassava flour is very versatile for preparing several dishes common to the region, including this bread with cheese. The best part of chipa is that it is not only delicious but also gluten-free. Along with being a national dish in Paraguay, back in the Yaboti Biosphere Reserve, when the community sits together at the table to share a meal prepared with local ingredients and local know-how, it is, in fact, a way of celebrating life and transmitting knowledge, demonstrating that humans can live harmoniously with nature. @unesco_mab has collected sustainable recipes from UNESCO's Biosphere Reserves across world and created its very own cookbook. Stay tuned for more recipes that are delicious, sustainable, and celebrate the beauty of biodiversity. . . ðSwipe to the side to see the recipeð . . .ð©âð³ð¨âð³ððððð©âð³ð¨âð³ðððð . . #Foodie #FoodPhotography #Chipa #Cassava #CassavaStarch #Bread #BiosphereReserve #GlobalGoals #Biodiversity #SustainableDevelopment #FoodiesOfInstagram #cooking #SustainableCooking #Diversity #Recipe #Cook #Food #GlutenFree #UNESCO Photo credit: @tembiupy ð¸
Por supuesto, la publicación generó indignación y no se hicieron esperar las críticas: “Cómo una organización supuestamente respetada como la Unesco permite el robo de identidad de una comida típica del Paraguay”, lamentó uno de los internautas, mientras otros compatriotas se encargaron de aclarar que la chipa es 100% de nuestra tierra guaraní.
