Feijoada: 1 lb Pork chops, in cubes lb Black Beans

1 lb Pork chops, in cubes
lb Black Beans
1 lb Smoked sausage
1 lb bacon
A day before cooking:
Cut the pork chop in cubes and season with salt only. Keep them in the fridge,
separately. Put the beans in a large saucepan and cover with cold water by 2-inches.
Let it soak overnight.
In the day of serving:
Place the drained black beans in a large pan and add water (or beef broth) to cover by 3
inches. Bring to a boil, reduce the heat to low, cover, and simmer until the beans are
slightly tender, 2 to 2-1/2 hours (you can use a pressure pan and reduce that time to
one hour). Add additional water as needed to keep the beans covered.
While the black beans are cooking, prepare the meats. In a large frying pan‚ sautee
onion and garlic using either vegetable or olive oil. Add bacon cut in small strips for two
or three minutes. Toss in cubed pork and beef. Sautee until meats are well done.
Once the black beans are almost cooked, check to make sure there is plenty of cooking
liquid in the pot. It should be rather soupy at this point. Cut the smoked sausage into
rounds and add them and all the other cooked meats to the pot. Then add all of the
seasonings to the pot, including salt, pepper, bay leaves to taste. Simmer for another 30
minutes, or until the beans are very tender.
*If you think it will be too expensive, the Feijoada can be prepared just with smoked
sausage and bacon, without the pork chops.

1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tbps unsalted butter

4 to 6 servings
White corn on the cob -- 6 to 7 ears
Water -- 4 cups
Sugar -- 1/3 cup, or to taste
Salt -- 1/2 teaspoon
Cornstarch (optional) -- 3 to 4 teaspoons
Ground cinnamon -- for garnishing
1. Using a sharp knife, carefully cut enough kernels off the corn cobs to make 3 to 3 1/2
cups. Then scrape the cobs with a knife to remove all their milk. Place 2 1/2 cups of the

in the remaining corn kernels, 1/3 cup sugar and salt.
3. Bring the liquid to a boil over medium-high heat, then reduce heat to low and simmer for
5 minutes, or until lightly thickened. If the atol doesn't thicken to a creamy consistency,
mix the cornstarch with a little cold water and whisk into the simmering liquid until it is
just thick enough to coat a spoon.
4. Pour the hot atol into mugs or small bowls, sprinkle with a little cinnamon and serve hot
with a spoon to scoop up the corn kernels.
Because the corn used in Central America is starchier, you may have to add the suggested
cornstarch to achieve the lightly thickened consistency

This is a classic and probably one of the most famous Palestinian dishes. Everybody loves it! This is a
standard in all Palestinian homes. It's also an innovative and different way to cook--a fun thing to cook
when you're having guests over! Upside Down (translation of its Arabic name, Maqloobeh) is made in a
variety of ways. It can be made with either chicken or lamb. The following is made with chicken.
• 4 chicken legs (or 1 whole chicken cut into pieces two breasts and two legs)
• 1 onion
• 2 teaspoons baharat (mixed savoury spice) or curry powder
• 2 teaspoons salt (or to taste)
• 8 tablespoons vegetable oil

• 1/2 cup cooked canned whole chickpeas
• 1/4 teaspoon cardamom powder
• 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
• 1 pinch cinnamon (optional)
• natural plain yogurt (200g small pot per person)

2. Rinse rice until water is clear and then leave to drain in colander.

12. Coat with pinches of salt and mixed spices.
13. Brown under grill.
14. Get a medium sized pot.
15. (I recommend a non-stick one. I've tried this in my stainless steel pot however the bottom
and sides get too hot so the outsides turn out burnt – so if your pot has a tendency to do
the same then don't use that one!) Sprinkle a fine layer of rice on the bottom to prevent
the other ingredients from sticking.
Place chicken pieces face down in saucepan (be careful that the rice remains below the
Place cauliflower pieces into saucepan, pressing it into the holes left by the chicken.
Add chickpeas in the same way.
Sprinkle 3/4 teaspoon of spices and 3/4 teaspoon of salt.
Add rice and spread evenly.
Carefully and slowly pour the chicken stock on top to cover rice.
Cook on stove-top until rice is cooked.
Quickly flip the saucepan upside down onto a large serving tray (preferably round).
Rub and cool down top of pot with a wet cloth.
Carefully remove the pot, trying not to let the Upside Down collapse! (Don't worry if it
does, it happens even to the experts!).
Traditionally all people eat from the one big tray, each person eating from strictly in front
of him, but it can also be served onto plates at the table.
Eat with small bowls of yoghurt.

Swedish Tea Ring
1 tablespoon active dry yeast
1/4 cup warm water (110 degrees F/45 degrees C)
1 lemon, juiced and zested
1 cup milk
1/2 cup margarine, softened
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup white sugar
2 eggs, beaten
4 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1/4 cup white sugar
3/4 cup chopped pecans
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup confectioners' sugar
1. In a small bowl, dissolve yeast in the warm water and let stand until creamy, about 15
minutes. Zest and juice the lemon; set juice aside for later use.
2. In a large mixing bowl, combine the yeast mixture, milk, butter, salt, sugar, eggs, lemon
zest and 2 cups of the flour. Stir until smooth and well combined. Mix in the remaining
flour, 1/2 cup at a time, stirring well after each addition. When the dough has come
together, turn it out onto a lightly floured surface and knead until smooth and satiny;
about 8 minutes. Lightly oil a large bowl, place the dough in the bowl and turn to coat
with oil. Cover with a damp cloth and let rise in a warm place until doubled in volume;
about 1 hour.
3. Punch down the dough and turn out onto a lightly floured surface. Roll the dough out into
a rectangle approximately 12x24 inches. In a small bowl, mix together the cinnamon, 1/4
cup sugar and pecans; spread this mixture evenly across the dough. Roll the dough into a
long roll and press the seam closed. With the seam turned downward, seal the two ends
together to make a ring. Use a little water to help you seal the ends.
4. Place the ring on a lightly greased cookie pan. Using a sharp knife or kitchen shears,
make cuts every inch or so along the ring, cutting only three quarters of the way through.
Twist each piece slightly so that the rolls fan out from the center of the ring. Cover the
roll with a damp towel and let rise in a warm place until nearly doubled in volume, about
1 hour. Meanwhile, preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees F).
5. Bake the tea ring at 375 degrees F (190 degrees C) for 25 to 30 minutes or until golden.
Remove the ring from the oven, place on a rack to cool.
6. Place the lemon juice in a small bowl along with the vanilla. Add 1/4 cup of powdered
sugar and stir until the sugar is dissolved. Continue adding powdered sugar, 1 tablespoon
at a time, until the mixture is fairly thick but still pourable. Drizzle the lemon-sugar
topping over the ring.
