For some time I tried to find the quintessential Kiwi recipe, I’ve tried (and failed..) with a Pavlova and I’ve dug into the “New Zealand Cookbook” to find the Kiwiest of them all.
As I explained HERE, this month I’m hosting Our Growing Edge, so I though this was the best opportunity to test my skills on New Zealand cooking.
Some of you might have notices that every once in a while I post a food related post with it’s recipe and I explain that that particular post is part of something called “Our Growing Edge”
Our growing edge is a way to share our achievements or challenges in the kitchen monthly, every month there is a new host and at the end of the month they will “review/showcase” all the recipes shared. Care to guess who is October’s OGE host??
If you ask an Argentinian to describe another Argentinian there are two possible outcomes:
We are cocky, we think we are the best on anything and we can talk ourselves from any situation. We are eternal pessimists, that’s why we always see the glass half empty and because of our unfortunate economic history we believe that makes us experts in matters such as politics and economy. For that reason we will always complain, complain about the job market, food and gas prices, politicians, security, TV shows, weather, etc. we love to complain.
on the other hand… (and I’d like to put myself in this group)
Some may say we know how to enjoy the little things in life, we have fun (that’s why many bands want to go to play to Arg. we are a great crowd) We love to spend time with family and friends, slow down, unwind, eat long lunches, spend the necessary time getting the “Asado” ready, sit down and have a glass of wine or spend entire afternoons chatting and drinking ‘mate’ with friends. Might be the Italian roots, but food bring us together. Because “Life is not a Pastafrola” (Life is not a piece of cake), we are melancholics, we know it, but we will make the most of it.
