Torta+Taco=Tasty

I ain’t going to mess you up with a tangle of tarted up food speak this week. Just a trusty description of what got made and what got eaten: The sandwich up above is a ‘torta milanesa’ and before you get your knickers in an authentic twist, this is my  London based version. So no […]

Mexican Month: Guajillo Chilaquiles

It’s brunch time at the household and before we whip up some French toast or salmon cream cheese bagels, save a little thought for this most calming dish. You might have had chilaquiles before, either served in a salsa verde or a salsa roja. They are day old tortillas, cut into wedges and fried; quick […]

Mexican Month: Sweet Tamales

A tamale is a sign of promise, a corn husk wrapped promise. They look like the original packaged food. Peel back the husk and check out what treat waits within. You pray for a lard enriched corn wonder dough. Although it can turn out to be a steaming pile of bland stodge. Air pressure and […]

Mexican Month: Chilorio

Mexican Month: Get Your Gordas!

In the cold cavernous device called the fridge, lurks many neglected food items.  And, as you move half-empty jars filled with different coloured liquids, you come across a dozen or so corn tortillas.

A short, tasty fried dough snack is the perfect break food, and here we have a black pudding empanada, sitting next to the gorgeous green glow of freshly mashed guacamole. The sliced radishes, radiating red rings […]

Tuesday is Taco Night

Make your Tuesday night a taco night! Hell make any night a taco night. To be honest I made these on Sunday, after having some fish tacos a few days earlier. They sure hit the spot, but everybody is doing fish tacos at the moment with the same old fish, be it red snapper or […]

-Mexico meet Spain-

This is the most right a picture can be. Number 1, you will see in the background my beer of choice now stocked in my local supermarket – this siptastic tasting beer is called Punk IPA by Brewdog(as previously seen here and can be drunk in mass quantities here).  In the foreground is a colourful […]

Space Marine Pasilla Tacos

Who knew that beech mushrooms could have provided outstanding scenery for my teenage games of Warhammer 40,000 – Space Marines vs. Orks fought out on edible backgrounds! If you don’t happen to know what the high hell I’m talking about, check out the link:http://www.games-workshop.com/gws/home.jsp. Nature knows no limits when it comes to weird and beautiful […]

Mole

While writing a review for The Otherside Magazine, my mind headed back to a glorious trip I took to Mexico City a few years back.…  This mole was one major undertaking, toasting chile seeds, hand grinding them with avocado leaves, adding marjoram, thyme and cloves, forming a spice based structure to create a mean broody […]
