Global Cuisine goes to Myanmar
Burmese celebration with the Uricks! Chris Urick came home from her travels earlier this winter with a cookbook. “Under the Golden Pagoda: The Best of Burmese Cooking.” From that book, we’ve chosen a few recipes for our Global Cuisine Potluck on Saturday, Feb. 14th. You will find them on the Time and Talent Table.
One of those recipes sounds really special. Judge for yourselves:
“Mohingar is a passion of the Burmese people. Almost every morning, the urge to have this soup seems to grip every Burmese. But they will also eat it any time of the day, anywhere – in their homes, at a food stall, purchased from itinerant vendors. The latter are mobile cooks who make their rounds of the neighborhoods on foot, carrying a pole on their shoulders. On one end there is a big pot full of soup with a small charcoal burner beneath; at the other end hang the cooked noodles, bowls, and other accessories. A favorite pastime of neighbors is sitting around the vendor and trading gossip and small talk while eating the soup.”
Come try our version of the soup at the potluck. Dinner is at 6. Bring along the neighbors, why don’t you?
