[Flatbreads and Flavours] - Corn Tortillas with Pueblo Chile-Bathed Pork
*sigh* Well my Dears, You know and I should know by now that I will be in deep deep trouble once I type the words "sounds interesting, I might join you..." into twitter or facebook or well wherever else... ha! Do you think I'll ever learn?
THAT sentence got me into making these darn macarons (more on that subject in another post, I am also late with again), well that sentence and lovely Jamie and Deeba I might add!
THAT sentence got me join my friend Simone with her Donna Hay Photography Challenge, where I must say I need to apology deeply to her for missing two challenges in a row I guess... :( Sorry Dear!
THAT Sentence got me into joining the Secret Recipe Club, which is a very fun way of getting to know a whole lot of new blogs!
THAT sentence got me to bake with the Bread Baking Babes as a Buddy for quite a long time, and now I am a Babe myself, thankful to have been invited to join this group of gorgeous ladies!
...you get the message, no?
Don't get me wrong here, all of the above, and the others I did not mention, really is fun and I love to be part of it, but still this little witty Aquarius sitting on my shoulder from time to time really gets me into more trouble every time!
You might be wondering what it was this time... well I managed to get around those baking groups that bake their way through Peter Reinhardt's Bread Baker's Apprentice or the Mellow Bakers who baked through Jeffrey Hamelman's Bread and now have moved onto Dan Lepard's The Handmade Loaf for quite a while, mostly because I knew I would not be able to bake all that bread for a single household that I am (trust me, my fingers itched often to join when I saw my fellow bloggers post their lovely breads, but I really have enough on my plate right now).
Enough on my plate? Ha! If mankind would still believe that the shape of the earth is a disc - that would be the size of my plate... but that's a whole other story!
When my dear fellow Babe and blogging friend finished her Mellow Baker's thing and started a discussion on our BBB & Friends Facebook group where the outcome was that we founded another group "Baking through Flatbreads and Flavours" where we are doing exactly what the title says: bake and cook our way through that book.
Little did I know when I joined Natashya in her vision... that darn book has 424 (!!) pages and about 90 (!!) recipes!
So that'll take a while! When we settled on the details we decided that we'd do a bi-weekly modus starting with the first recipe(s) in February. Posting deadlines will always be 15th and 30th of a month.This is our schedule so far:
- Feb 1 - Feb 15: We are going to Mexico and Southwest U.S.! (In our kitchens) p. 377 &369 - Corn Tortillas with Pueblo Chile-Bathed Pork.
- Feb 15 - Feb 28: We are going to Penang! p.115 - Lacy Coconut Milk Pancakes (roti jala) + p.117 Coconut Milk Chicken Curry (gulai ayam)
So if you happen to own that book and want to join us in our culinary journey around the world, just hop on the bandwagon and give it a go! If you do not own the book: while setting up the group we found that it can be tricky to get hands on a copy, since it does not seem to be available easy everywhere. Just keep on searching, we all managed to find a copy sooner or later ;o) We will not be sending out any recipes for those who do not own a copy - sorry!
