We all have that one recipe that stands out in our minds as special because it was either gifted to us by a grandmother, mother, or friend; or maybe it was something we come up with late one night with a mish-mash of ingredients but it reminds us of a special time.
If you love steak and you love the savory spices of Mexican cuisine, get your kitchen utensils ready, because you’ll want to make this dish.
Much the way people can argue a taco salad isn’t really a “salad,” this recipe for a special Thai salad we received from the delightful mr. Jimmy (just mr. Jimmy), co-owner of Blue Elephant Thai Cuisine, would also fall into that “not really a salad” category. But for the BEST possible reasons. Look at this thing, for cryin’ out loud!
Spring is just around the corner—at least we hope it is. And it would seem that Chef Meir Brown and the talented kitchen staff at Café Med are in agreement with us. When we asked them to come up with a recipe for our readers for this issue, they read our mind and created a sweet, refreshing, and totally filling Grilled Peach Salad that is just perfect for these in-between days. Packed with local flavors and nutritious ingredients, it’s a perfect lunchtime salad or a healthy side dish to chicken or steak. Without further ado…
Thankfully, Chang, the wonderful owner and chef of Little Italy, has tossed up something simply marvelous for us for this issue’s Quick Bites. Now, we all love macaroni and cheese, but Chang has taken that simple recipe and elevated it to new—and tasty—heights with the creation of this utterly inspired, utterly Italian dish. We’ll have seconds, please.
