This month, we are celebrating Mardi Gras with a focus on Louisiana cuisine.
Schiacciata alla fiorentina! Yes, I am taking you to Florence today!
Although jambalaya is not a mardi gras recipe per se, it is probably one of the most emblematic dishes of Louisiana.
Mardi Gras will be celebrated on February 28th. A culinary carnival associated with a lot of calories is being planned on 196 flavors. Our first recipe will be king cake!
Pork is another symbolic food along with noodles or dumplings to be eaten during Chinese New Year’s 15-day celebration.
Cong you bing (in Chinese, 葱油饼), literally “scallion crepe”, is my last recipe of our Chinese cuisine journey.
Our Chinese month is almost coming to an end but a new lunar year already started over the weekend. The celebrations of the Year of the Rooster will continue over the next two weeks, featuring a number of symbolic dishes such as chang shou mian or long life noodles.
Steamed fish (清蒸魚), a symbol of auspiciousness according to Chinese tables, one of the most emblematic dishes of Chinese New Year, will be my recipe today!
We are only a few days away from the Chinese New Year, which Chinese communities across the world will start celebrating this weekend. And we are continuing our journey with a dish that is probably the most famous and preferred Chinese dish across the world, especially by non Chinese: kung pao chicken.
