World Cup Foods: Frijoles Antioquenos (Colombian Cargamanto Bean Stew)

In the World Cup, at 4pm EST Colombia takes on Uruguay in one of the first Group of 16 matches. Uruguay is playing sans star-player and serial biter Luis Suarez. Without it’s hungriest team member and dulce de leche how can they possibly win? In this matchup I’m going for Colombia who are the clear […]

World Cup Foods: Cevapi with Ajvar (Bosnian) at Cevabdzinica Sarajevo (Astoria, Queens)

The World Cup group rounds are winding down. Though technically eliminated, Bosnia is playing Iran at 12pm EST. This last match is for pride and to possibly to act as a spoiler.

Feijoada: Brazilian Rice and Beans

Happy World Cup, all! I’ve enjoyed the matches so far. I didn’t see the Netherlands destroying Spain 5-1 coming at all. I was also thrilled to see the U.S beat Ghana 2-1 after losing to them in the last 2 world cups. In honor of the host country, Brazil, I made a batch of the […]
