I’ve friends coming to dinner, and one poor soul can’t tolerate onions, even cooked. And nope. You can’t sneak ’em into the recipe or use leeks instead. I’ve tried and really felt bad when my friend became ill!

Taste buds prickle; wanderlust triggered. An Argentine barbecue (asado)
enticed me to Patagonia. A friend gave me a vial of ground sumac berries--4 months later I was
waking at dawn to the "Call To Prayer" in Turkey. Porcini to Tuscany, and so on. Read more about my chronicles of
