Taste of the Islands - TV Cooking Show on PBS

Finally! Singing the Hallelujah chorus. AGAIN!

This time all the rejoicing is because of a food TV show.

We relocated to Austin, Texas in 1998 and my mate's first observation about living in this land-locked part of the state was that the city was missing a good Bahamian restaurant or at least some place that serves dishes that look like island food!

Once we got cable TV hooked up and got settled in, his next complaint was that the #foodie channels didn't have a good cooking show to teach people how to prepare common island meals.

In 2015, his prayer was finally been answered.






http://tastetheislandstv.com/chef-irie/Our public television station (PBS) airs a show called “Taste the Islands”. Chef Irie (real name Hugh Sinclair) lives in South Florida but is from Jamaica.

My mate is from The Bahamas.

Close enough!





 
We're both very happy.
For now.  :)

Falafel - Traditional Recipe for Chickpea Falafel (Reblog)

** Food trivia:  "Falafel was originally made with fava beans and continues to be made that way in Egypt and other Arab countries, but Israeli falafel is made from chickpeas."  


Personally, I am sort of glad the recipe was modified.  Ever since the character Hannibal Lecter - played by Sir Anthony Hopkins - made that comment about fava beans in the movie "Silence of The Lambs", the beans just don't look the same on my plate.

Falafel - Traditional Recipe for Chickpea Falafel

Falafel is a traditionally Arab food. The word falafel may descend from the Arabic word falāfil, a plural of the word filfil, meaning "pepper." These fried vegetarian fritters are often served along with hummus, and tahini sauce (known as a "falafel plate.") They're also great served with toum, a Middle Eastern garlic sauce.
