Carnitas: the Mexican pulled pork

Carnitas translates to “little meats”. Traditionally the pork is braised for a long time until it falls apart with a fork. It is very similar to pulled pork but the flavors are all Mexican.

Brie Brazil Balls and Lentil Loaf Tapiocas with a Brazilian Salsa

An exotic take on the BLT:
My B is a Brie Brazil Ball: brie cheese shaped into a sphere and then rolled in ground Brazil nuts
My L is a delicious Lentil Loaf with a spicy kick. Awesome dish for vegetarians.
My T is Tapioca, more precisely a traditional Brazilian ‘tortilla’ if you will, made from tapioca starch.

Mexican Breakfast – Pan Dulche

A sweet chewy bread with a gorgeous seashell-like look which is sold in most panaderias all over Mexico.

A very old Brazilian dish, a seafood stew. It is so packed with flavor and so warm: it is comfort in a bowl.


Coca-Cola goes Brazillian and Colombian

Have lots of leftover Coke? This recipe is apparently very popular in coastal Colombia. It is not the prettiest dish but it was good.

Exotic Dragon Fruit Flan

The word flan comes actually from an Old German word “flado” meaning cake and around most of the world a flan refers to a tart with a crust and a egg custard filling. Here it is paired with a dragon fruit, or Pitaya, which is actually native to Mexico and the South and Central Americas.
