Global Voices: A Zestful Welcome to the Wonders of the World edit

1_13 I have been struggling during the last week with a nasty cold. Luckily I have survived. Barely, to tell you the truth. How would you feel if you can not perceive any aromas, taste the food or finish listening "A Cook's Tour", book on cd by Anthony Bourdain? Well, that has been me lately. More than eating monkey brains I dislike being sick. Thank God it doesn't happen often.

So, now you know WHY I have not been posting as usual. Now you know that it was not because the Cooking Diva found a better paid job than blogging (LOL!!!). I'll be here for a long long time, I promise.

For those of you who follow my weekly column published at Global Voices, I am happy to report that yes, I wrote it. It took me a little more time to finish it, but I was lucky to have some delicious "chicken soup" made with "gallina de patio" (free range chicken), which is good for our body and soul, right? Thank you David for your patience smile

The new global food blog roundup is called: "A Zestful Welcome to the Wonders of the World."
We would LOVE to know your comments. The topics covered include reports from blogs that cook in or about:

  • Spain
  • Cambodia
  • Philippines
  • Greece
  • From the Tropics
  • Israel
  • Thailand
  • El Salvador
  • Perú
  • France
  • México
  • The US

I am working on a "Mango: Catch the Yellow Fever" post and delicious step by step recipes including an "Arollado de Chocolate y Mango". Will post it tonight or tomorrow morning.

Happy Cooking!

Chef M

Sorry to hear you’ve been down with a cold.  Chicken soup is a good antidote - add some matzoh balls and you’ve got Jewish penicillin.  I remember decades ago in Panama buying “huevos de patio”  - what is it about eating grass and weeds that causes those bright yellow yokes?

I’m glad your better, so that we can all follow your adventures in Panama again. Look after yourself.

Thank you for the get-well wishes!!!
About the bright egg yolks, it is a very interesting subject. I think that eating grass and bugs is only one part of the story. The other part is that the chickens are happy and they do not get any hormones. The eggs are very small and tasty, I love them.
