Cooking from a Black Perspective – The Honeydijonay Blog
Thanks to honeydijonay commenting on my Hard Knox Cafe review, I’ve spent some time looking at her blog. It’s pretty funny. What’s it about? This Toronto native writes,
Not to offend the bougie gourmands who are also of the Black persuasion but in my experience Black people have a different mind set about food. What is and isn’t normally eaten would make most foodies roll their eyes at our ignorance. Some things are simple we like pork and most pork products. We do not and are not in the habit of eating meat or fish raw or ‘tartar’. We are wary of sushi. We love butter and lard and deep fried anything.
Since my local ABM friend has become too busy lately to delight my tastebuds in his homemade fried meats (or Szechuan food), I had to scour honeydijonay’s recipes for some salivatory inspiration. She’s got the usual recipes for pork products (BBQ ribs, pork roast, and all that), but what impressed me is the sister’s got her version of Egg Rolls to share, too. While you’re at it, if your recreational habits blend with your cooking habits, you can also check out her recipe for pot cookies. Solid.
