The Shrewsbury Biscuit Podcast: Pueblo Artisan Food And Arts

Wherever there is food, people gather and when that food bridges the gap between 2 countries, this is something special.

AL bumped into a market stall at Shrewsbury’s outdoor market called Pueblo Artisan Food and Arts. He was drawn in by the empanadas, knowing his Colombian wife would love the food on offer. An idea for an episode where we can discover the food of South America lit up like a light bulb.

So AL is joined by Franco, owner of Pueblo Artisan Food for today’s episode. Franco is from Argentina and his wife is British. During lockdown in Argentina Franco was looking for a good place to set up his business here in the UK. He was reading a book about Charles Darwin at the time. It was here that he learned about the town of Shrewsbury.

Now Pueblo is a reality, offering traditional Argentinian food made from ingredients found here in Shropshire. This episode dives into the importance of getting the food just right, what it means to have access to this food for the South American community here in Shropshire and how far back these traditions go.

Franco is a great guy and I really enjoyed chatting to him about how food can build bridges between people. South American food is amazing and I am so glad that this cuisine is being represented in such a wholesome way.
