The poblano is one of my favourite chillies but it's something I eat only rarely because I've never seen it in local supermarkets or at a wet market.Sunday, 2 September, 2012, 2:09pm
I'll be on holiday in southern California next week, where I'll feast on Mexican food. One of my favourite taquerias is El Taco Nazo, which specialises in Ensenada-style fried fish tacos. This is my attempt at replicating that dish.
6-8 corn tortillas, about 15cm in diameter

The quesadilla is one of the first 'international' snacks I remember learning to make. When my brothers and I got home from school, we would have things such as instant noodles, rice crackers and dried cuttlefish - snacks that Asian children around the world seem to eat.24 Jun 2012 - 12:00am
You probably won't be tempted to taste a vegetable called 'corn smut', so let's use its Mexican name, huitlacoche (or cuitlacoche). It's a fungus that infects ears of corn - in other words, it's somewhat like a mushroom.24 Jun 2012 - 12:00am
Monterey Jack isn't the type of cheese you'll find on the cheese board of a Michelin-starred restaurant, nor is it something any connois-seur would wax rhapsodic about. It's a cheese that can be appreciated (in its own way) for its simplicity: it's a mild, straightforward cheese without any complex flavours.17 Jun 2012 - 12:00am

On a recent trip to City'super (Times Square, Causeway Bay, tel: 2506 2888), I found some ingredients I had thought were only available overseas. I was thrilled to find Romero fideo cabello on the shelves, because without fideo you can't make fideua. This is a Spanish dish that's similar to paella but uses fideo - short (about 1.5cm), thin noodles - in place of the rice.6 May 2012 - 12:00am
A quesadilla is a Mexican sandwich using tortillas, which are made from flour or corn and look like big, soft pancakes. It can be served as an appetiser, snack or as a light lunch.
This is a basic recipe, but you can add other ingredients such as chicken, sweetcorn, red peppers, mushrooms or ham.

If last night's party was a fun one, you'll probably be feeling a little 'delicate' today. The cure for a hangover is food - but not just any food. Carbs and grease are good - you need something to soak up the excess alcohol.1 Jan 2012 - 12:00am
