Sweet Potato WafflesChef Carolyn’s Corner

Breakfast food. Many of us conjure up memories of Mom or Grandma in the kitchen whipping up some wonderful Biscuits, Bacon, Grits, and if you’re from Louisiana some Cush Cush and Milk........Fresh Figs and homemade everything, even the butter.

 

We were told this was the most important meal of the day (Still Is).

Tapas - Mini FoodA New Way to Appetize

 

Thanks to the migrations of many cultures the food explosion is evident in Houston. From Sushi to Moroccan food our taste buds are now craving a new fusion of flavors...and the Tapas Menu is everywhere

 

Tapas originated in Andalusia, Southern Spain. But now very common in the United States, and in Houston alone, about 30 have popped up all over the city and even on menus.

Fried ChickenBack in the day if you wanted to know where to get the best Barbeque/ fried chicken you had to ask the worker at the hotels and if it was back in the 40’s your parents had something called the The Green Book.

In 1936, an African American living in New York, Victor Green  wrote  The Green book for black travelers. He made a list of hotels, restaurants, gas stations, and other businesses that  welcomed blacks and allowed Blacks to patronize.
