CONCHA EN JEREZ

This is recipe that comes to us via Spain, once considered the mother country in Puerto Rico, when the Spaniards ran the show.  In Spain, Concha en Jerez, simply scallops in sherry, is normally served as part of a tapas ensemble.… Read more...

STEAK WITH ASIAN SAUCE

This recipe is a variation on a common concept: steak with sauce.

Two of my favorite edibles are mushrooms and sausage. So why not combine the two?  And here it is, the dish given below. I added a sweet note by adding raisins and, instead of the usual dry wine as a stock, I decided on a sweet wine: it could be sweet sherry or even muscatel.… Read more...
