My Pal Joey

Thursday, July 28th, 2011

The only thing better than making a new friend is making a new friend who cooks. Yesterday I met Joey Santos a welcome addition to my circle of friends.

Last night he cooked a family recipe of “arroz con gandules,” the national dish of Puerto Rico. Gandules are pigeon peas and along with seasoned pork, onion, garlic, roasted red peppers and green olives made an incredible side dish to a fabulous meal with old friends. Joey also made a  grilled marinated flank steak and another family recipe for flan with cream cheese. Wow!  I’ll get this recipe also.

When I get back to my kitchen I’ll prepare the arroz con gandules and share the recipe.  In the meantime here’s Joey in his own words talking about his recipe.
