Refusing to err far from their cultural and culinary roots, modern Venezuelans are still big consumers of native foods. Corn, in particular, is a staple ingredient, and can be found in a wide range of snacks and mains, including the much-loved arepas. These fried corn breads are commonly served at street stalls and can be stuffed with a variety of fillings, like cheese or meat, or simply served with jam and butter as an alternative to bread.  Sweet arepas (known as anisita) are even accompanied by hot chocolate eaten for breakfast!
