Do you know what a cook lives for? The look in friends’ eyes when they’ve bitten into something you’ve made, and they’re deliriously happy about what they’re eating. The wide-eyed smiley faces would say, “OMG, WOW,” if they weren’t so busy eating, and wanting to be polite and not talk with their mouths full. That’s the response I got from my friends last night when I served them tacos with this slow cooked pulled pork. This pulled pork is rubbed with a spice mix of traditional Mexican spices, marinated an hour to overnight, seared, and then slow cooked until the meat is falling apart tender. It’s a great filling for tacos, tamales, and burritos.
What’s a Super Bowl without wings? Here is the second recipe in our homage to the teams in the XLVII Super Bowl—chicken wings, tossed in a sauce of butter and Baltimore favorite Old Bay seasoning, baked and broiled, and then served with cocktail sauce. Hank wanted to call these “Raven Wings”, but I objected thinking that people might actually believe we are cooking and eating large black flying birds, which we are not. Yes, serving cocktail sauce with chicken wings is a little weird, but it’s good! Especially with the Old Bay.
Are you ready for game day? I don’t usually get too worked up about the Super Bowl, in fact, it’s usually a great time to shopping, no traffic! But this year is different. This year, Superbowl XLVII, pits two great teams against each other, each coached by terrific coaches, who happen to be brothers. It will be quite the Harbrawl. (Can you imagine being their parents? Who do they root for?) I, a former San Franciscan, haven’t had this much fun watching the home team since the days of Coach Walsh. Anyway, to celebrate this epic matchup we looked for recipe ideas that would honor the cities of both teams, Baltimore and San Francisco. What better way to do that than with a crab salad panini? Both Baltimore and San Francisco are known for their local crab. In Baltimore it’s blue crab, in San Francisco, Dungeness. The crab salad itself is made with fresh, sweet lump crab meat, parsley, green onion, lemon, mayo, and Tabasco. The crab salad is spread between two pieces of sliced sourdough bread (a nod to SF), painted with butter, and then put in a panini press, where the two sides are jammed together, and sizzled. Just like the upcoming game.

Football (American) championship season. Sports bars, beer, and spicy things that make you want to drink more beer. Darts, pool, loud conversation, an either ill-spent or well-spent youth, depending on your perspective. Once in my early twenties I happened to be in Buffalo, New York for a wedding of a dear friend. On our site-seeing day the gang of us revelers happened to drive right by the Anchor Bar, home of the “Original Buffalo Chicken Wings”. Did you know that Buffalo wings are so called because they were first invented in Buffalo, NY? I didn’t, and it had always been one of those oddities that gnawed at the back of my brain during these beer filled nights. In San Francisco we had Tommy’s Buffalo Burgers made with real buffalo meat. But buffalo wings? Hah! Mystery solved.
