Palak Paneer-esque Hand-Held Pies

Palak Paneer-esque Hand-Held Pies

My love for Greek food spiced with Indian flavours is real and runs deep. I merge these cuisines’ flavour profiles often. These palak paneer-esque hand-held pies are a variation on novelle grecque food: traditional Greek food lightened up and gussied up with modern flavours. They are also a nod to the North Indian classic, Palak Paneer. Their inside texture is soft and creamy, packed with spinach and dotted with specks of cheese that look/taste a lot like paneer.

Soul Food Inspired – Spicy Masala Cornbread

Soul Food Inspired – Spicy Masala Cornbread

As a teen, I discovered the wonder of books with recipes included. I remember reading about soul food and traditional cornbread was always a crucial part of the meal. Depicted as the backdrop for family bonding, soul food was a metaphor connecting generations together and recipes for items like cornbread were held to hushed secrecy. Really, it’s not hard to associate cornbread to warmth, love, and family. Despite knowing cornbread requires no yeast and is simple to execute, I was intimidated. This mindset is typical of me: give me a task that is difficult and I will find it easy. Give me something easy and I find it a challenge.
