The holidays are almost here and that can only mean one thing, FOOD! And lots of it! One of the things that I look forward to the most during the holidays is the food. Yeah sure, the people I spend time with are cool too, I guess. If you like to entertain during the holidays (or any other time of year) keep certain go-to recipes in your back pocket for those impromptu gatherings or times when you need to whip up something quickly. One of my favourite recipes can be made in literally less than a minute – restaurant salsa!
You know what I really love? When I ask people for recommendations for a specific cuisine or dish and my earholes are filed with answers like, “My mom makes THE BEST enchiladas,” or “Oh! There’s a spot in Ville St. Laurent that made THE BEST tacos… but now it’s a Jean Cotu.” So unless you want me to ring your mom’s door on an off night where my visit isn’t scheduled, don’t tell me that she makes the best burritos because I’m going to go looking for some. Recently I asked around looking for tacos. Honest, simple and true to the bone kind of tacos. Questioned with a warning of an imminent slap to the face if answered with a location that isn’t accessible, I asked my people for the good tacos.
