    Authentic Cornish Pasty

    Tuesday, 14th April 2020Tyler

    The first time I even heard of a Cornish pasty was when I went to Cornwall (not surprisingly).  I had planned to go on a camping trip with some friends near Newquay. (A town in Cornwall has been a tourist spot for more than a hundred years! Not surprising when you see those gorgeous beaches!) After days of planning, we hopped in the car and started driving. The five of us (one Scottish, one South African, one from Isle of Wight, one Irish, and myself, the American) had a grand ole time in our drive. We start driving from Crawley,…

  • Tomato, Parmesan, and Prosciutto Fried Panini

    Sunday, 29th April 2018Tyler

    Gosh, I’ve had a crazy week! My sister has been preparing for a study abroad and I helped her pick out the destinations for her trip (she’s an assistant), I have a few deadlines coming up at work so I put in a whole 52 hours this week, I made a goal to finish a book on economics in the next month so I read a couple hundred pages, etc. I’m still in the Italian food mindset and so I whipped together my version of a panini I once saw in a bar in Reggio di Calabria (a city in…

  • Carbonara - Step 4 - Final Product 2

    Classic Carbonara

    Saturday, 30th December 2017Tyler

    I woke up this morning feeling like bacon. Suffice it to say I was extremely disappointed when I opened my fridge. So, I came up with another plan. This afternoon I ran to the store and bought some. I came back and in minutes whipped together this delicious carbonara. I’ve always considered the carbonara to be a strange dish, wonderfully creamy and bacony but strange. I mean, the dish is practically pasta, cream, eggs, and bacon. There’s not much to it other than that. I don’t even know how it came about. Honestly, I can hardly imagine the original creation. It…

  • How to Make Authentic Greek Moussaka Step 10 Final

    Moussaka

    Thursday, 7th December 2017Tyler

    Mουσακάς! Greek Moussaka! I’m really excited about this dish. So excited that I made it six times before posting about it! Moussaka is wonderful for a bunch of reasons (and I know you’ll agree once you make it!). I’m not sure how to list them so I’ll just go for it Moussaka tastes wonderful. Your first forkful contains a blend of flavors. You’ll catch a hint of thyme, the starch from the potatoes, the sharper flavors of the ragù, the subtle eggplant and zucchini juices, and the creaminess of the béchamel sauce. It is both affordable and easy to make!…

  • Souvlaki

    Tuesday, 5th December 2017Tyler

    Σουβλάκι! That’s right! Souvlaki! Are you ready to Rome the streets of Athens today? (I got a good laugh out of that.) I absolutely love Greek food! Greek food has flavors that really reflect their history. As a kid, probably a lot like you, I was always eager to read Greek mythology. As an undergraduate in physics, I used Greek characters in practically everything I did. By no means does that imply that I’m quite familiar with Greece, but I do love learning about the culture, history, language, and, most importantly for you now, the food. Souvlaki reminds me of dozens…
