The tequeño (fried breaded cheese sticks or a piece of bread dough with a queso blanco filling in the middle), the famous Venezuelan pasapalo that in recent years has become very popular in the world, has been declared Cultural Heritage of Venezuela. This was announced by the Minister of Culture, Ernesto Villegas, through his Twitter account.
"Let Raimundo and everyone know: the tequeño is Cultural Heritage of Venezuela. Today, April 20, I had the pleasure of signing the certificate that certifies the inscription of this gastronomic delicacy from the Altos Mirandinos in the Venezuelan Cultural Heritage Registry," he wrote.
In 2021, the Organization of Venezuelans around the World, as well as many other compatriots, declared October 21 as the International Tequeño Day. This, with the idea of defending a typical food of the country, on a date that coincides with the founding of Los Teques, the city of Mirandina where it was created.
