Black Velvet

Childhood memories are vivid, almost indescribable in their detail, and impossible to forget. A Christmas memory I have is that of a black velvet dress  a family friend gave to me for my seventh Christmas.

Bourdain Goes to Chile and El Buzz is Born

Submitted by on July 14, 2009 – 5:47 am2 Comments

woman-in-santiago-by-gabriel-nicolasFoodie, author and traveler-worth-your-envy Anthony Bourdain has kicked off another season of his popular Travel Channel series No Reservations. In case you missed it, the first episode is based on travel in the country of Chile.
The episode is in your editor’s DVR, but a quickie search of el Google found this blog, and a nice entry giving information about Bourdain’s likes and dislikes — foodwise — while in Chile. It appears Bourdain loves lomitos.

If you get a chance, find the Colombia episode on Hulu.com and watch the making of a sancocho. Fascinating. Right down to the cook giving the rooster a shot of rum before putting him in the pot.

Check out some Chile recipes here, and bookmark this allegedly Chilean butternut squash casserole, which is a favorite at your editor’s Thanksgiving table. Have you ever been to Chile? Are you Chilean?

Speaking of food, have you shared your week’s Latin dinner dishes — or food you wish you could make — with the Tiki Tiki?

Si, the Tiki Tiki changed the name of this newsy digest from el diario to el buzz. Por que? It was more like el semi-diario than el diario and wanted to be a bit more accurate. El buzz will bring you the same content — news, pop culture, blog contests and giveaways. Just not daily.

By the way, we’re going to post a Latino book giveaway today, so keep an eye out. It’s a great, new title.

Oye, did you watch the Judge Sonia Sotomayor hearings yesterday? What are you thinking? What has been your reaction? Are you following it closely, or no te importa?

Hasta tomorrow. Maybe.

    Rats! Despite all the hype, the juicy new episode of Anthony Bourdain’s No Reservations did not air in Chile last night, although I hear it did in the States… So I hope you all got to see it and are now dying to try lomitos and completos and arrollados in situ!

    I watched it and was blown away by the food, the people, the vistas. What a blessed country Chile is. I would totally try lomitos and that giant hot dog and the “cafe con piernas” was hilarious and gross at the same time.
