"There's a Frog in My Soup?" Recipe Book

We, the Perez Zeledon International Women's Group, have been busy over the last several months creating a bilingual recipe book that helps inform and celebrate the local produce of Costa Rica. Not sure what to do with an Ayote, Chayote, Pejipaye, Tiquisque, Nampi, or Mamon Chino...we can help!

This book is a tribute and “thank you” to the farmers who toil in the blazing sun, pouring rain and up vertical hillsides to bring us such wonderful produce, and to the farmers who produce our excellent meat, poultry and dairy products.

The recipe book is 5,000 colones or $10. All proceeds from the sale of this book will be donated to Hogar Betania, a residence for the elderly and sick in our community who do not have family and resources to help them in the final stages of their lives.

Thanks to everyone for all their help in this project.

If you would like to buy a copy of this Recipe Book, look for our booth at the San Isidro Feria every Thursday or you can contact me at
