The Universal ‘Green Sauce’

Salsa verde, chimichurri, pesto, chermoula – you can find the characteristic ‘green sauce’ in most corners of the world. While these sauces all vary in ingredients and preparation, generally they’re defined as an uncooked sauce made primarily from fresh herbs. They add a fresh, punchy flavour and are often used to provide balance, cutting through…

Slow-Cooked Texas Chili

Texas chili doesn’t contain beans or tomatoes and has a base of dried chillies, which allows for a really deep, rich flavour. This recipe uses both minced beef and diced beef, which gives it a range of textures to make up for the lack of beans. This has quite the kick, so I’ve cooled it…

Achiote Cod Tacos with Charred Corn Salsa

I wanted to try something slightly healthier than baja fried fish tacos (which are delicious), so I grilled the fish and served it with a charred corn, pepper, and tomatillo salsa, guacamole, pink pickled onions, a chipotle crema, and homemade corn tortillas. You can find the recipes for guacamole and pickled onions here. Achiote is hard…

Homemade Tagliatelle Alla Norma

Pasta alla norma is a Sicilian dish of pasta with fried eggplant, tomatoes, basil, and grated ricotta salata. I couldn’t find ricotta salata, but pecorino romano could be used instead, or even feta if you want a similar texture. My version is kind of a cross between alla norma and puttanesca, with the addition of…
