Guatemalan Fiambre Feast

Share

This Guatemalan Fiambre Feast dish is traditionally served just once a year, on November 1st. This is Dia de los Santos (All Saints Day), the first of a two day celebration followed by Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead).

On Dia de los Muertos, Guatemalans have, for centuries, visited their deceased loved ones at the cemetery. They would bring incense, flowers, and a full plate of Fiambre to leave at the grave.

In modern times, Guatemalan Fiambre is most often shared with family and loved ones at home in more secluded celebrations.  There are many variations on the dish, and families typically have their own version that has been handed down from generation to generation.

This recipe is the “red style” of Guatemalan Fiambre (Fiambre Roja). It gets the red color from the use of beets.

You will want to prepare  your Fiambre least one day before serving, and two days ahead is better to start the preparations. This is because the flavor is enhanced by being marinated in caldillo – a sauce made with vinegar and some other special ingredients. Also, preparing a true Guatemalan Fiambre Feast is a very involved, multiple step process. But don’t worry – you and the small army of people you can feed with it will be extremely pleased with the fruits of your labors!

Cheesy Crab Souffle – what could be better? For people who love cheeses, eggs, seafood, and have a flair for the more elegant aspects of French -influenced American cuisine … not many dishes top this one.

The soufflé first originated in the kitchens of France, of course. However, when French people began immigrating to America, they brought this delightful dish with them. Since then, French-American style soufflés have evolved and flourished. This Cheesy Crab Souffle is among the very finest!

Ugandan Samosas Snack Food Recipe

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.

To make perfect New England lobster rolls, you want to keep it simple. The succulent flavor of lobster meat is in itself what you want featured. Avoid the temptation to add much – if anything – to this simple, yet elegant recipe. Too many extra flavors can wind up overshadowing the unique and subtle flavor of the lobster salad filling. Even the use of sriracha hot sauce, if overdone, can ruin New England Lobster Rolls. You may even want to not use any hot sauce at all, but I find just a bit of it actually adds a “brightening-up” taste to the lobster. Experiment for yourself.

Note: If you are going to use fresh lobster meat, and will cook it yourself, you will need to buy four times the weight (in lobster tail form) of the amount you want to wind up with for your lobster salad. In other words, for this recipe, which calls for 1 pound of lobster meat, you would need four pounds of fresh lobster tails.

The below recipe does not take into account cooking time for the lobster, so for your convenience there is a chart below the recipe which shows how long to steam the tails.
