Puerto Rican Rice and Beans, the real authentic version, is a standout dish. Many countries have a beans and rice dish (or several) in their cuisines – Mexico especially comes to mind. The Southern Soul foods of America also have wonderful beans and rice dishes. However, properly prepared, with the traditional ingredients and methods, a good bowl of authentic Puerto Rican rice and beans just can’t be beat!

Ugandan samosas are a nationwide popular and very common snack food. They are an African “fast food” that you can buy at kiosks on the side of almost any road. They are delicious, and quite inexpensive to make.

Ugandan Samosas can be made with or without meat. The most common meat used is beef. Vegetarian or not, they are always delightfully spiced and seasoned mixture of veggies, wrapped in a thin sheet of pastry, and then baked until golden brown and crispy.

Ever since being a boy, I have loved camping. Real camping – the rustic kind, sleeping in tents, fishing and foraging for food, and cooking meals over an open campfire. I was taught, early on, how to do gourmet open fire cooking.

I cringe when I see other campers preparing their “meals” – which most often are hot dogs, or marshmallows, or maybe, for the more “advanced” campers … even a grilled hamburger! winking_smiley

As far as “side dishes” typically go, they are munching on potato chips or Doritos, and perhaps some store-bought deli items.

Not me. Nothing against hot dogs and hamburgers, I love ’em and will sometimes cook and eat them.

SmoreI also do love a good open fire-roasted S’more as much as anybody. But when I go camping, whoever is with me is going to eat very good. I’m talking about real …

Fried Chicken traditional Bajan Style is beloved by the natives of Barbados. “Bajans” (which they call themselves) favor this kind of super spicy hot way of preparing fried chicken. Bajans refer to this kind of preparation as “seasoning up” a dish. For the best results, after seasoning the chicken, refrigerate it for a couple hours before the deep frying. This will allow the flavors to meld and blend deeply into the meat.
