The Perfect Food Memory
I like to eat just about everything and I eat foods from just about every country of the world, but I think the one food that I can eat everyday (and try to) is a crispy pork Carnitas taco. All my favorite flavors come together in every bite. The layers of flavor start with salty, fatty and crispy braised pork on a soft warm corn tortilla with a big dollop of avocado, chopped jalapeno and lots of cilantro, finished with a scatter of small diced white onions. I love it! It takes me back to street taco stands in Baja Mexico where we would give the cook some money and say "keep them coming" a few beers and maybe a shot of tequila with the cook and a food memory is made.
