Venezuelans enjoy a cuisine with a rich regional diversity and influences ranging from Spanish and Italian to African and indigenous. The people of Venezuela are meat lovers. Beef is especially popular, although fish and seafood are common along the long Caribbean coast. Arepas, small cornmeal patties, are a common snack and are grilled or baked and stuffed with all kinds of tasty fillings.
