Scalloped Potatoes and Ham

Thanksgiving Potatoes and Ham Au Gratin

Share

One of the most important holidays in America is Thanksgiving Day, and this Thanksgiving Potatoes and Ham Au Gratin dish is perfect for the occasion.

Also sometimes referred to as “scalloped potatoes”, this is distinctly North American. Some will argue the original recipes for scalloped potatoes came out of Ireland and/or England. However, potatoes are native to America. It follows logically that early European settlers would take advantage of their availability. Regardless of actual region of origin, Thanksgiving Potatoes and Ham au Gratin is, and has been for centuries, an American traditional and beloved dish.

Honduran Fried Yojoa Fish is one of the most famous dishes in Central America, and a national favorite. It originated in the Yojoa Lake region of Honduras.

The fish is spiced and salted, left to marinate overnight. Then it is deep fried. This particular method makes the flesh delightfully flaky and easy to be pulled off the bones. Fried Yojoa fish has a slightly sweet taste, which is a large part of what distinguishes it from any other fried fish dish.

Fried Yojoa Fish is served traditionally with garnishes of pickled onions, pickled red cabbage and slices of fresh lime. A favorite side dish is deep fried sliced bananas (plátanos tajaditos).

Barbadian Guava Cheese

Barbadian Guava Cheese Supreme!

Share

Barbadian Guava Cheese is a nationwide favorite sweet delicacy in Barbados. It is also popular in other regions, perhaps mostly in Southwest India, Goa, where is is also known as “perad”. Guava cheese was brought to Goa by the Portuguese, and its popularity spread into the Caribbean Islands as well.

In the United States, it has other names, such as: Pasta de guayaba, Guayabate, or Guava Paste. With a texture much the same as fudge, Bajans eat it by itself as a dessert, or it can be used as a filling in pastries of pies. It is also wonderful as a spread over toast. There are several variations of this delicacy, but this is the basic, authentic, traditional version, and why I call it Barbadian Guava Cheese Supreme!
