Heritage Potluck

In honor of the 4th of July, I am posting about this very American party. It was a brilliant idea: everyone brought a food from their "heritage." We had: Travis's Southern boiled peanuts, Maria's New Zealand Kiwi Pavlova, Gina's Dalmatian Čevapčići (sausages), Aaron's American Mac N Cheese, Jesse's Cheyenne Fry Bread (with sundried tomatoes and goat cheese!), Trang's Vietnamese Banana Blossom Salad and 5-Spice Pork Belly, and my Turkish Sephardic Spinach Borekas. Everything was delicious.

I'll be gone for a month... more posts in August. Have a great July!

I am going someplace with very good food, someplace with good food, and someplace with terrible food. I will miss cooking.

The foundation has yet to make available its list of affiliates.

hey Celine--I made your chicken w/ pomegranate molasses, etc.--it was great! Next time I'll make it with boneless country ribs, beef up the bacon and cut out the carrots.

where have you been. My food life has been empty since you've stopped posting. Should I send the food police to find you? Might you be in some place eating rare duck breast? I hope, if you are doing so, that you are drinking a burgundy with it.
