Cumin Chicken

Cumin Chicken by John Spottiswood

The combined flavors of cumin and oregano in this seasoning is just phenomenal with poultry. This recipe is adapted from Allen Susser's New World Cuisine. It is one of our favorites. Even as we have moved toward more of a vegetable-centric cuisine, this has remained a staple.

Yaniqueques (Dominican Johny Cakes)

Yaniqueques (Dominican Johny Cakes) by Yolanda Fernandez

Yaniqueque is flat bread, usually round. It is made with ingredients such as flour, salt, and water. This is a comfort food in the Dominican Republic. I learned how to make yaniqueques from my mother, but then I modified the recipe because I like it one way and she likes it in another. For example, she makes them small and fat. I…

Peruvian Roast Chicken

Peruvian Roast Chicken by John Spottiswood

This is a fantastic recipe that I adapted from the Cook's Illustrated Cookbook. I was looking for a new family favorite to rival my Cumin Chicken recipe, and this came darn close. The flavors in this recipe blend together very nicely and don't overwhelm the flavor of the chicken. Everyone in our family enjoyed it. We served it…

Grilled Chicken Breast with Chimichurri

Grilled Chicken Breast with Chimichurri by Nancy Miyasaki

This simple to make sauce and marinade is one of the best parts of Argentinian cooking. While I've normally eaten Chimichurri with steak, it is possibly even more delicious with white meat chicken. You won't be disappointed.

Brazilian Chicken

Brazilian Chicken by John Spottiswood

After watching Brazil come back from 2-0 to beat the US 3-2 in soccer last weekend, I got an itch to try some Brazilian BBQ. If figured if I can't rejoice in victory, at least I can enjoy the food they'll serve at their parties! This Brazlian chicken is really tender and delicious...and uses beer, one of my favorite BBQ ingredients.…

Slow-cooker Beef Stew from Argentina

Slow-cooker Beef Stew from Argentina by John Spottiswood

I slightly adapted thie famous Argentine beef stew to be slightly more flavorful...and thus to my liking. The extra cumin seeds, paprika, cayenne, salt and pepper don't take away from the flavor of the meat and vegetables, but they give an added kick that makes this classic family stew extraordinary. We had it at our family reunion,…
