I've been watching a lot of the Olympics this past week. Figure skating, hockey, curling, the biatholon –– it all works up an appetite. So I'm considering cozy recipes from around the world to accompany the Winter Games: comfort food from China, Italy, Thailand, and beyond. I'm talking savory fried rice, and sweet and chewy gluten-free bibingka from The Philippines. Or perhaps classic boeuf Bourguignon, Korean steamed egg custard, or a tray of honey-crisped baklava from Greece.
I can't decide! Can you help?
Maybe I'll try them all. No matter what I'm planning on a pot of that Cuban black bean soup and a big plate of spaghetti alla carbonara. I'd also love to try my hand at homemade baklava, which actually doesn't look as complicated as I thought it might be.
