This recipe is from week 14 of my food blog, "Travel by Stove." I am attempting to cook one meal from every nation on Earth, and Aruba is my 14th stop. Keshi Yena is traditionally made in a hollowed-out, four pound wheel of cheese. This updated version comes from Gasparito's Restaurant and Art Gallery in Aurba.
