Mkatra Foutra- Comoros

Not many people know about Comoros. I always knew it existed, but I never thought it was particularly exciting. Not anymore. I’m spreading the gospel of Comoros. This bread (basically, that’s what Mkatra Foutra is), is so, so, SO good. It tastes buttery, but it has no butter. It tastes magical, but it has no…

Arepas- Colombia

I have three passions in life: dogs, economics, and carbs. And there are few better ways to get my carb fix than from arepas. If anyone ever tells you to give up carbs (unless for medical reasons), cut them out of your life, then go cut yourself some bread. Carbs are great! And by that…

Rich, satisfying, and really, really good. INGREDIENTS 1 cup milk ¾ stick of butter (6 tbsps) 1 package active dry yeast 2 tablespoons sugar…
