Exotic Bass as it is called “Corvina” sitting on a bed of Purslane – “verdolagas” as it is called in Latin America. Verdolagas has a unique summer inspired lemony flavor and waxy leaves which I love.
Thank you Michael Anthony from Gramercy Tavern in New York City “Raw with a splash of white wine vinegar and olive oil.” As I love it in a salad, my recipe has been sautéd in tomatillo – leek sauce; the lemony mix from both becomes an inviting spicy mix which reminds me of a Sunday, winter and cloudy day in Mexico City
Columbus and Cortez amounts about 500 years of Spanish presence and influence in Mexican cuisine and would forever more be culturally mixed.
Hand made tortillas and a shot of tequila make a perfect combo.
