Divas of Dulce de Leche

So, it appears Sofia Vergara is trying to dethrone me as the Diva of Dulce de Leche. Descarada!
Thanks to Blanca, a loyal friend who wants to defend my title, I saw a video of Sofia on the Tonight Show pitching arequipe, a Colombian version of dulce de leche. It appears Gordon Ramsay did not like it. More for us.
Now, some background. If you didn’t know I have a very strong and deep love of dulce de leche, let me point you to my personal blog, Bilingual in the Boonies, where I keep a category on the subject.
I pretty much buy any general market food product with the words Dulce de Leche printed on it — from Pop Tarts to Jello. And, when I land in Miami, the first thing I do is head to Navarro and the corner bakery and fill up on the stuff.
A couple nights ago, I took my 6-year-old on a late evening trip to El Palacio de Los Jugos on Flagler Street in Miami and we shared a Cuatro Leches cake — tres leches topped with dulce de leche! It will take weeks to drop the weight I have gained during this Miami trip.
Take a look at these pictures and you’ll see why Miami is a dangerous place for me…dulce leche everywhere at.all.hours.of.the.day!
So, below is the video of the very funny and charming Vergara on the Tonight Show and below hers is the video pitch I did six months ago, begging some dulce de leche company to pick me, me, me! as their Spokes Diva of Dulce de Leche.
I’ve got just a few more days left here in the Homeland, so I am off to discover mas dulces.
And if Sofia wants to do a joint tour to pitch dulce leche and arequipe, my maletas estan ready.
