This recipe is inspired by the Argentines I play soccer with every weekend on the Lower East Side. Empanadas are a great snack, blending the holy trinity of savory, spice, and just a touch of sweetness. This recipe is from New American Table.

Having ignored pork (bacon not included) for most of the fall and winter, I’m taking advantage of our groundhog-mandated extended winter and making the pork dishes that are on my to-do list.

I’ll admit, when I first heard of pork braised in milk, I raised my eyebrows. I don’t keep kosher, but the idea of so egregiously mixing meat and dairy seemed like too much, even for a meat lover like me. I stand corrected. After slowly simmering in a garlicky milk sauce, the pork becomes impossibly tender, infused with the unique aromatics of sage. The milk and garlic reduce together to form a silky sauce that serves as a bath and a dressing for the pork.

This tender and flavorful dish is relatively low impact and easy to make. Read More

Korea is well known for is their street food. Their big street stalls and food trucks offer a plethora of choices such as fried chicken feet, barbequed beef, and fried wonton dumplings. Korean street food is a perfect combination of authentic dishes that are ready-to-eat at an affordable price.

In this recipe we’re combining one of everyone’s favorite street food, the taco, with more Korean-style flavors. We replaced the regular taco tortilla and instead use fried Wonton skins as the “shell.” The sweet Napa slaw adds a hint of sweetness to the spicy Korean pork filling. The crunchy Wonton skin, the spicy Korean pork, and the sweet Napa slaw make for a perfect combination for a street food you can make right at home. Read More

Happy (Belated) Independence Day, Mexico! Though I cannot claim its heritage as my own, I am Mexican at heart. I love everything about it, from celebrating ancestry on Day of the Dead, to pastel de tres leches, and the melodramatics of Telenovelas. Like any culture, there are few traditions more precious than food and naturally it is the most enjoyed by even those who can’t share decent. Yesterday, September 16th was the Mexican Day of Independence and the day when, in my opinion, the best Mexican dish is served: Chiles en Nogadas. Read More
