will the real taco please stand up?

Mexican cuisine is more than just tacos, burritos, and fajitas. In fact, you would be hard-pressed to find anything swamped in beans, yellow cheese, sour cream, and diced lettuce south of the border. And while Taco Bell and Chilly’s have made quite a business for themselves on these dishes, there is so much more depth, history, color, and flavor to authentic Mexican meals. Here are twelve dishes I recently enjoyed while visiting friends and family in central and south Mexico.

Los Angeles, like many cities, is not one that you should plan to visit for only 24 hours. But, if you're traveling on business or have a lay-over on a longer trip you should definitely make the most of the time you have and see what the city of angels has to offer. 

Cooking Classes: Bringing Home the flavors of your vacation

We all like to bring home souvenirs from the places we visit--bottles of wine from Bordeaux, emeralds from Rio, cutting-edge electronics from Tokyo. As a food-lover, my favorite souvenirs are foodstuffs from my travels. Unfortunately, many edibles from abroad aren't welcome when you return to your home country.

kicking it with JJ: pinoy eats world pampanga culinary tour

The first time I took this tour, I overdid it on breakfast. So much so that the rest of the meals were a bit force-fed. The warm and thick morning flavors had occupied my stomach's usually cavernous space for most of the day. I imagined the flavors each dish had packed; the sticky salty sweetness of the cured bacon, the peppery tang of sugared pork sausage, and the warm vegetable-infused scrambled eggs, all mixed together in the gullet with slightly bitter hot chocolate. It was a meal that we had talked about for weeks after the tour.

best of the wurst

While we've been enjoying the fruits of Oktoberfest and German cuisine in general, one food is far and away most abounding at both festival time and year round - wurst or sausages as we call them. There are well over a thousand types of German sausages, with many regional specialties with subtle spicing differences and meat mixtures in nearly unlimited variation. We won't tackle all of these here, but will present you with some of the most popular and common types.
