Peanut stew is a common dish throughout West Africa. They call peanuts “groundnuts” because they are “nuts” that grow in the ground. This authentic Angolan version of the peanut stew is among the very best to come out of Africa.
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).

Today’s post is featuring a new recipe added to our Classic American/Soups and Sandwiches Page:
New England Lobster Rolls
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.

Indian Lamb Rogan Josh is one of my all time favorite dishes. The marvelous flavors are of course one reason, but also the history of this recipe is intriguing. “Josh” is Indian for heat and passion, and “Rogan” references red in Hindi, and oil in Persian. Hence, this Indian Lamb Rogan Josh is a method of cooking lamb in a red, oil-based sauce over very high, passionate flames.
Kashmiri chilli powder provides the redness to the sauce. The creamy Greek yogurt and aniseed undertones meld together, creating a soothing, yet very powerful sauce. Lamb Rogan Josh has evolved over centuries; there are recipes now that call for various vegetables added in. But this is the age-old, traditional and simple, yet perfectly elegant version, in true authentic Kashmiri fashion.

Polish Kielbasa is now a beloved sausage in many countries throughout Europe and the Americas. In the States we grille it, use it in stews, all kinds of ways.

Also, serve it with the Hot Sweet Honey Mustard Sauce for a condiment … Absolutely Wonderful!

Korean Pa Jun (egg pancakes) is an easy to prepare recipe. I have fond memories of these from my days as a Zen student living in a temple with a Korean Zen Master, and the daily fare was largely Korean. It makes a great snack, or an appetizer, or a side dish to an Asian meal.Just see how yummy this looks!
Korean Pa Jun can be tweaked to your own tastes; almost anything goes as long as the basic eggs, flour and scallions are included. I like to spice them up with some hot peppers, and add some sweet bell peppers as well. You can also experiment with the ratio of eggs to flour you desire, achieving anywhere from a heavy, thick texture to light and fluffy.

Making Turkish sand coffee is very similar to making “ordinary” Turkish coffee. Of course, “ordinary” Turkish coffee is not very ordinary at all. The big difference, and what has recently become a wildly popular method recently all throughout the West and Europe, is that making Turkish sand coffee involves using – you guessed it …
Sand is heated to extremely hot temperatures in which to brew the coffee. The curators who proffer this method claim that the sand offers a more consistent, even heat than normal brewing in a pot directly over a flame.
