Batar Da’an is a cross between a soup and a stew. Although it seemed quite unexciting at first glance, it turned out to be a wonderful dish that is not only very easy to make, but inexpensive, flavorful and… vegan as well as gluten free! Go figure. We all loved it, Scott especially, noting that […]

We have been ordering fresh vegetables from Misfits Market for a while now. Basically you get organic veggies at regular prices, but the veggies are just a bit off on size or look or something like that. They have been doing this type of thing in France for years. Anyway, we ended up with a […]

Tonight, our more or less alphabetical culinary Tour du Monde has brought us to Bhutan. Kewa Datshi is a mix of potatoes, farmer cheese and hot chili peppers in a thick gravy. Actually pretty good.

We decided to do another burmese dish in tribute to my brother Bhikkhu Subhuti, who was kind enough to help me make this blog a reality. In his other life (pre-monk life) he was a highly skilled programmer… and now he occassionally uses his skills to help others, but generally tries not to spend to […]
