different cultures around the world. So sometimes That'll be cooking other

...

times that'll be making handy crafts other times will be

...

kind of exploring in the world of

...

language and

...

history

...

and and and I'm I'm not particularly

...

musical. However, I do love music. And I do love to learn music and

...

I think, you know, possibly as I learned music,

...

with some some people from those cultures, I might add a little bit of the comedy in know

...

sense

...

since it it's

...

I'm not sure I know how to keep it out to

...

five

...

Yeah. That's what the show gonna be all about will be each

...

dot com. We will be posting there

...

the the various recipes that or the various

...

ingredients that you'll need for the episodes. And then in the following, we

...

when there is the rest

...

or or physically something or making

...

we'll be posting on romantic how to

...

Melissa has now oh, she's there in our audience. So I'm gonna invite up to the

...

date

...

And

...

Hopefully, she needs to accept. There we go.

...

she's accepted it. And and so we're gonna just do a little sound

...

so we're just you a little southwest right now, and we're you're

...

right now to see if we're hearing echoes of each other.

...

each

...

Okay. Can you hear me?

...

Okay.

...

I can hear you.

...

give.

...

get echo.

...

A little bit of an echo.

...

trying to think

...

I'm gonna mute my mic second, and then we'll see if that got through of the echo.

...

I'm gonna use my success and like that through the.

...

Okay. Perfect.

...

It's to.

...

Hi.

...

Get it echo.

...

No.

...

Okay. Great.

...

Right. Hold on one second. I'm gonna

...

confirm with my husband for two seconds. I'll be

...

So ...yeah, so we'll just ...we'll just display this with

...

with listen, I'm meeting back and forth here. So

...

for those of you that are cooking along with us, what we're gonna be making

...

in this first episode as we we learn about tech

...

cuisine here. And and the sort of awesome

...

of style brunch. We're gonna be be doing that around

...

making breakfast tacos.

...

And so I've heard of breakfast burritos before, but

...

this is the first time I've heard about breakfast tacos.

...

And I understand from Melissa, that

...

breakfast tacos are sort of a an Austin texas

...

thing. And so I did have been of reading up on that this morning.

...

And I actually understand there's a little bit of debate as to whether they're

...

from Austin, Texas Or And Pod ed who listed cross of the kids

...

right that laughing. So hopefully, she will ...I

...

mute her mic and I'll mute myself and if she can fill in a little bit on that.

...

And Now seems to be cheering on

...

So

...

Oh, okay. And I'm

...

speaking very terrifying here because I've I've not read the history and quite

...

on time. But

...

If you live in Austin, Austin has the best breakfast tacos goes.

...

If you hail from San Antonio, San Antonio has the best breakfast tacos, but

...

I'd say because of the cultural

...

seen in San Antonio being so heavily

...

either

...

Or

...

text influence like,

...

there it

...

San Antonio Tacos are better.

...

like Can, like, from a Mexican perspective from a

...

text perspective. They have really good tacos, but

...

it's just one of those things where

...

you get up in the morning you say, okay, It's Saturday and Sunday.

...

where am I gonna go?

...

the first place to go is for your breakfast tacos.

...

you can get them at gas stations.

...

they're prepared at grocery stores. Of course, you can go

...

to talk with stands, but they're everywhere they're ubiquitous.

...

it's like oatmeal.

...

or cereal. Like, it's that kind of thing. So

...

I almost never make them at home because

...

they're so easy to pick up out and they're way better that way.

...

And and you see that they, like, we've got a counter full of stuff

...

this is probably the most pop and services ever to make these.

...

this can be a lot of fun America. And thank you for enjoy, inviting me on visual.

...

Well, I'm I'm absolutely thrilled to have you on the south.

...

It's melissa unless been working on my

...

well, she's she's now graduated. I'm doing a long slow method, but we're we we met

...

true. Masters of educational technology. So

...

hopefully, we'll have her on encounters in Ed tech.

...

that that we've that we've got going on on

...

Tuesdays, when we have a guest available,

...

But so

...

So as I, you know, sort of got

...

got prepared myself for the show aside from from doing a little bit of

...

food foraging. I did some research

...

into tacos, and

...

and the where tacos come from and, of course, originally

...

tacos are from

...

from Mexico. And the theory is

...

that they actually started and making in in a view. If you know of

...

you have more information on this than me as

...

every top chatting about it, please. Please jump in. But in

...

historically,

...

tackle come from

...

the code, and they're belief to come back from somewhere in the eighteenth cents

...

in the silver minds. And the reason why they think they came out of the

...

fill her minds is because the word

...

Tahoe actually refers to a

...

piece of paper that was used to wrap up the die the mites.

...

and suck into like, and so it would be wrapped almost like in a little.

...

and stuck into the walls in the dynamite for like. It

...

stuck to the walls for the blast,

...

And the original, apparently, like, the

...

part of the reason why it thought that

...

that this is where it came from is because the first references

...

the tacos that they found in the early nineteenth century

...

were ...and this is all research found and Smithsonian magazine.

...

they they actually found the the

...

first reference to Tacos being the miners tacos.

...

And so as I think chatting in here, and melissa was be making

...

faces at me. She's been getting everything ready.

...

to make make the first portion of our ...what we're cooking which

...

is the and and

...

Tortilla.. Laughing

...

and

...

I'm laughing right now because I just realized that I was

...

talking and we had black hair.

...

because I had myself mute.

...

So anyhow,

...

I was ...I was I was saying to pronounced did if somebody had the audio of

...

can tell me if any of my conversations should the odd be his

...

three of

...

of of Tacos and Did did that get shared there?

...

Did you Oh, good. Okay. I'm guessing From Today's

...

those classic there that ...so Stephanie clapping that that you did did hear that, which

...

good. But what I was ...what I was saying a few minutes

...

go as is that

...

bliss now preparing everything to to to make the, which

...

Oh, yes. I pronounce it right this time.

...

Apparently, I think I pronounce it to

...

trip

...

t before, which apparently is incorrect. So I was getting a no No no from

...

from from Melissa across the kitchen.

...

and and that's part of what the social shows about is as we learn about

...

cultures, and we explore those cultures, those faux pause, but

...

those of us that don't live in that culture might make, you know, as far as pronunciation of

...

things and things like that. We will learn a little bit more about on the show.

...

So I I need to preface this before I sort of hand things over to

...

melissa here that melissa is embarking on the

...

Trip,

...

Oh, yes. I'm good so. Making out of a request

...

for me, it is something that she first learned

...

from

...

in and a friend of hers Anthony kitchen,

...

and her her friends anthony came from my

...

originally? Yes.

...

Is mixed. Oh, the family's the families originally from Mexico, but

...

she grew up here or grew up in in Texas. And

...

Melissa has since tried to make this recipe her

...

south. And the suggestion is is that this will possibly be the

...

called my curly portion other. So

...

So she just wanted me to preface that that she is not a

...

a a honed maker of the tortilla.

...

And so I with, I'm gonna mute myself and turn things over to Melissa.

...

So, yeah, I have

...

Even tortilla is my whole life. I've made them once with

...

my friend, isabelle, aunt and we

...

I think I can't remember if we made quarter flower, but I do remember. We

...

had a lot of wine that night, and she actually says, use the wine bottle

...

as the roller. And so I learned how the main tortilla is for the first

...

fine with a

...

rolling them out with a with a wine bottle into instead of the pen.

...

today, we have a pen, although we do have some empty wine bottles in the garage.

...

we're gonna do that. So

...

I don't know about this. I try to do this once

...

already.

...

you know, leaving up to this podcast,

...

and I just felt like they were way too dry. And so I know that Baking is more of a

...

science then

...

something you're supposed to tweak, but I think we need to tweak the recipe a little bit

...

to incorporate a little more either oil or water.

...

possibly both. And so

...

I'm following a recipe on online, and I can pass the information

...

in Erica that upload it. But, essentially, we're using one and a half

...

cups of all purpose flour.

...

we're using half

...

half of one three so that comes out to two tables

...

spoons and two teaspoons of

...

olive oil.

...

you could use a different kind of oil if you wanted to, but something neutral

...

there's actually more neutral oils than all oil, but that's what we're gonna use today.

...

and then a little bit of salt.

...

I had sea salt that I use yesterday. The flights are way too big.

...

some ...you could actually taste salt particles and in the bites

...

So I borrowed of some

...

normal salt from a neighbor. So we're gonna get started on this and

...

we have to do this, let everything rest after we pull it up.

...

And so this is our first part of this so that we can then focus on doing salsa and then

...

basically, all of the

...

core components like eggs and potatoes are gonna happen very quickly.

...

So I'm gonna ask Therapist she'll do one favor for me, which is to

...

put a pot of potatoes on the boil because we've got

...

a lot of different things going on. And if we can get those

...

on the so boiling, we've we've

...

started that process because we don't wanna be her old day for three hours making breakfast like.

...

anyway, yay. So

...

I've already measuring out my

...

flower.

...

gonna announce measure out my oil

...

you do also need

...

some baking builder.

...

because that is the one of the active ingredients.

...

So we're using half of these.

...

and half a teaspoon of

...

baking powder.

...

what I've done is I'm half the recipe I found online because Erica and I

...

this morning, do not need for the two of us sixteen

...

tacos those. We're gonna try the out.

...

I've never

...

cooked for audience for four. So

...

bear with me, but I've already measured out

...

the flower

...

now I'm doing that half of baking powder

...

and have teaspoon beautiful.

...

then we're going to mix that all up and incorporate it.

...

with a normal wooden spoon.

...

go back. And

...

That was great. We're gonna have potatoes for a few days.

...

Erica is working on the potato.

...

Now You're good. Great. So I'm mixing up

...

or dry ingredients.

...

just announce here

...

get that baking powder in that soul.

...

gonna make a little

...

not mount. The opposite no.

...

a little dividend the flowers so that we can pour our wet ingredients

...

then. So our wet ingredients are gonna be

...

that has

...

of a third of a cup.

...

so you can measure this out precisely if you'd like.

...

as two tablespoons.

...

plus two teaspoons where you can just use half a cup.

...

and use half of that or

...

And

...

use a third of a topping and use half of it. So that's what I've done. And then you he'd

...

one

...

half a cup.

...

of warm.

...

So more

...

so

...

to hot water. So just before I up your pictures,

...

Just before I blow up your kitchen, I'm not used to guest. How do I like

...

fifth

...

so that I don't have

...

Yeah. So how do I like this so that I don't have

...

I'm gonna meet my

...

I'm gonna meet myself quick.

...

So get this tour here

...

said. This not. Okay. You should add.

...

Oh, it lights on its own. Oh, I was looking. I was seen the path partner.

...

all way receive the beauty of cookie good somebody else

...

fiction. No. I just know ...With with

...

melissa sharing of

...

how she's, you know, creating some substitutes in here as she's making this.

...

This is actually very much what speaks to tech

...

met cuisine from my reading. I believe because

...

my understanding is that the whole evolution of text cuisine

...

was as as people from Mexico,

...

integrated across into the states and specifically and to texas,

...

there was

...

you know, there was a substitution of different ingredients

...

to match with the ingredients that could be found there. So, for example,

...

with third taylor

...

to killer.

...

yes.

...

tortilla. Mister Tortilla, the ...if

...

it would have traditionally being made with horn. If you were in met

...

as

...

with Mexican

...

Americans as they were in as they immigrated to to Texas this

...

They it started to find that there is a more german dramatic ingredients

...

like

...

like week flowers that they that they needed to work with. And so

...

so a lot of text mexico cuisine came from what was available in the area.

...

as well as the evolution of how

...

the sort of second third or

...

generation sort of

...

Mexican Americans sort of transitioned and and started

...

to to work with

...

traditional Mexican

...

recipes and

...

food that they were sort of comfort foods in in

...

in in Texas with with what was available and what they also grew up with

...

in the in the text and culture. And I love the fact that

...

as we begin to make the the churchill

...

And right now, melissa has been

...

sing all the ingredients up in the bowl. I love the fact that the wine bottle was used the because

...

for those of you who have joined

...

myself and and and

...

who's I've probably put out

...

his name wrong again because I just decided to add all this in here.

...

If you've joined our our show,

...

of race on on Thursdays, social cooking club that were on the flight hiatus from right now.

...

you will know that they're ...on my part, there's a lot of day drinking on that

...

show since they're all over in you're and that even big

...

time, but they're all three tickets. So, you know, we banned just

...

send you that day tradition should hear.

...

Let's just make you guys let me right now. And I've going to ...and look

...

like she's gonna take over. So I am going to turn off

...

If we were in Austin, Texas right now, it's a Thursday. Right?

...

No. It's fresh. It's a Friday. So if this were a long weekend, we we all

...

you know,

...

head tomorrow off, we'd be already drinking. And

...

You can buy alcohol. I don't know how early in the morning

...

and awesome, but you can go to a restaurant, order a drink like,

...

nine Am m. So we'd have a

...

we'd have something

...

going on right now, A bloody mary or a Caesar,

...

as Canadian say. But, yeah,

...

No. That's

...

So of course, is this what my cough is the

...

on your coffee.

...

Okay. Good.

...

So,, of course,

...

for for those of you who you

...

see Melissa now has groups both in Canada and Texas.

...

So I I'm not sure I'm looking at our audience, and I I know I definitely recognize

...

some of you in the audience from

...

from the United States, but I do believe that there are some canucks on here.

...

too like Randall. So and

...

Canada. We drink the strength called called Caesar.

...

And in the Us, I believe your version of that is

...

is the bloody mary. And I'm gonna just

...

hand this over to Melissa for second two to mention what the difference

...

between those two

...

I think there's probably essentially no difference.

...

other than caesar definitely has some sort of either

...

clam jews or some sort of seafood

...

juice.

...

in it. And in this Co yeah,

...

So in the stage, people sometimes don't

...

preferred and have that seafood flavor, so it's not

...

a Caesar. It's just either straight.

...

not straight tomatoes those views. Obviously, you put other things on it. But, yeah, like,

...

preferred is no seafood flavor.

...

not sure why. But

...

that's just the way it is. Right? I think the caesar was invented

...

somewhere in Canada. Right?

...

Yeah.

...

Definitely from somewhere in Canada. I'm not

...

sure where. I think that'll have to be another future episode of

...

be of of culture travels. Maybe we'll ...I'm I'm guessing this

...

probably some east Coast twists to to to the K.

...

And so I think maybe what we're gonna have to do is we're gonna have to have an episode that

...

possibly features to death

...

that are battling it out around the club around

...

base caesar and and the bloody mary and possibly sm cocktails will be

...

scheduled that particular episode for a bit later in the day.

...

Unless there are other day director of the show

...

I'm really gonna creating reputation provide

...

south on Fireside. I mean

...

these different times those of people that I've been ...I've been chatting to. Although today's is

...

is actually happening on the same type zone. And by the way, I have to say

...

Thank you, Lily and Rand, and

...

Elle. I don't know what your first name is sorry.

...

to now, John,

...

And, Jimmy, for all joining us here here on the

...

first episode and from being

...

such such active audience members

...

when you're you're filling us with all sorts of love here. So I'm taking a pitch

...

right now of Melissa because

...

she now in the states where she is

...

needing needing the Tortilla,

...

and

...

So so we'll get this so we share this online later odd so that

...

so that you guys can see everything in action here.

...

And so we've got

...

a it almost looks like

...

The consistency almost looks like cookie dough.

...

or could look like pizza dough actually,

...

I'm just looking. Although my pizza though I think might be a little bit

...

softer when I'm using it. I'm

...

going to turn off my mic and I'll hand it up

...

I'm definitely not a baker.

...

I don't do a lot of meaning or a lot of

...

work with flower products, but, like,

...

to me, you know, I wanna invite Erica because they can feel this

...

it feels a little dry, even though I put

...

know

...

touch more water and it's that's more oil. It is supposed to be somewhat shaggy,

...

Meaning like,

...

not perfectly soft, I guess.

...

But I ...you know, like, yesterday, when I did this, I I struggled. It's

...

kind of flaky right now as Erica is

...

also trying to knead it and work it a little bit. So I'm gonna let her do that for a second, but

...

what we've gotta do after we've

...

what I did actually, was I mix it up

...

I put it into a ball with my hands and I started to need it with Cherokee

...

is continuing right now. But we've got to let it rest

...

after we separated it into

...

little toward pieces. So

...

we're gonna cut into eight pieces

...

roll up in the little balls, sl them down.

...

make sure that both sides are

...

flower a little bit.

...

we're gonna let them rest with a clean kitchen tell over them, and then we're gonna get started on

...

some of this salsa making. So

...

I'm gonna walk away as arrogant does at the wash my

...

flowers, grazing hands off,

...

And you check close potatoes, and I'm gonna start also

...

dieting some tomatoes so we can just push them

...

in the oven. Just to give them a nice world.

...

Some people prefer like, a

...

salsa Es, which is it just basically means fresh.

...

salsa where only ingredients have not been cooked.

...

But what I really like for breakfast tacos is a smoke

...

flavor that you get from roasting. And so that's the rationale for me.

...

a salsa that's roasting.

...

So as Americans is as Arabic fixing used to need,

...

I just washed some of our

...

tomatoes.

...

And I'm gonna start dice them. Our potatoes are not

...

yet even boiling, which is great.

...

buds.

...

they're on.

...

first rule of cooking

...

it's the one I'm not very successful at is prepping everything in advance, but we wanted to

...

prep as we talk to you. So that we'd have a little more time in to chat.

...

But

...

so I was not making some of Erica or earlier.

...

when she said, is it's a very common thing for people to do.

...

And if you haven't grown up in an area where where a lot of people speak spanish, like, if

...

pretty commonly

...

mispronounced that way. And that's okay. What I was laughing at,

...

is how Erica in her

...

investigation has covered way more about the origin than tacos, than I have

...

ever

...

red.

...

and it's funny, because she's mentioning the

...

silver mines, which is a pretty big industry in Mexico.

...

and how I actually lived

...

in one of water

...

in the state of one of Clark for

...

some months, like, four

...

I was studying here.

...

I taken a leave of absence for my job as a teacher

...

moved down there when I was thirty five.

...

to study there, but it was a city built on

...

silver minds. And so probably, I was there

...

and just had no idea of the history, but

...

let me tell you, like, the tacos were fantastic.

...

and I can believe that about rolling up

...

the dynamite

...

sticking in the holes.

...

the little taco.

...

that you do. So I'm just still cutting these.

...

to main hose. I'm not dieting and very

...

small. They're kinda chunky because

...

they're be blended up anyway.

...

I think I've done probably three of these look like rosa.

...

Yeah. They're room. Perfect.

...

Roma is a really good

...

a pace tomato Right for doing italian stuff, but it's

...

very typically use to mate salsa because

...

it's not.

...

full of liquid.

...

they're you know, i'm touching them right now. I'm, like,

...

there's not gonna be a ton of excess liquid where if we were making this,

...

with a different kind of just a regular garden or even a greenhouse

...

tomato

...

we probably wanna us trains some of that liquid, with a wait is it would just be too much?

...

I've cut probably three of them, and I'm setting them aside for a second

...

give my hands or rents.

...

but we need the pop in the oven.

...

just roast them,

...

And we could you could boil them. You could turn them high heat.

...

I'm gonna just try to

...

jack out my Oven though about five hundred.

...

throw them and see what happens. We can forget about them for a while.

...

we we just kinda want them to

...

get all roasted. And try that you have to be

...

all the sounds the kisses so I set foil down

...

I need onion because we're gonna do the same thing as the onions. And just ...I it up

...

And I'm gonna also do some garlic. I'm gonna pass this back to Erica

...

I think she wants

...

chime in

...

so

...

Yeah. Ultimately, I was just making sure I wasn't still doing the double sound

...

thing. But no. What I was gonna do is

...

why we're just getting those

...

the onions and the

...

the tomatoes roasted

...

and doing a little bit of cooking here ourselves. I just wanted to

...

invite anybody who like to come up and share anything they

...

got on how on on how they either make their own churches

...

or Tortilla or or their own self to to

...

to share your your set of experiences and where where your recipes come from.

...

So I know Lily has being got something oh.

...

she says this sounds awesome. And authentic with a big

...

smiley face to you over there, Melissa.

...

Lily is, like is there's all sorts of

...

wonderful in terms of she's

...

she's the regular engaging

...

tier leading.

...

just warm person in the community. But does anybody here have

...

have any

...

any sort of self making artistic making

...

experience that they'd like to share on their own versions that

...

doesn't have to be text max that can just be, you know, your own favorite

...

thing that you do

...

or that you've grown up with and a way that you like

...

to

...

make your your salsa. I

...

will just send out some invites up to the stage and

...

if you've got something you wish to share, you can

...

set that inviting and coming up. And if you don't,

...

feel free to

...

to ignore the request.

...

So and it could be just something too if you

...

if you visited

...

Austin before and you wanna share something about your visit to Austin or if to

...

to to to other parts of Texas, you wanna do a shout out to fan

...

Antonio

...

you know, with the the

...

the sort of competition between Fan and Antonio and austin on the the best practice

...

the tacos

...

So we have had that join us up on stage. So

...

if you wanna unmute yourself and

...

Are you are you a assault to maker to cello maker just

...

a a con of good food or or is there ...I know you're travelers.

...

you I I haven't actually been to Texas yet you

...

Hi. Texas

...

probably at my bucket list, that mostly the eastern United States.

...

when it comes to

...

amazing

...

text match.

...

And sad,

...

been new Mexico, was enjoyed to

...

the flavors, the foods of Mexico,

...

So

...

has

...

if we Get a chance to taste the mixture of Text and and Mexican next

...

together. That'd be great. Another salsa maker

...

Joy salsa,

...

anytime we get to go out to a restaurant, like say,

...

we have lone star here. They have a good su chips

...

but tortilla, we do

...

And the tortilla shows they create are just

...

magnificent, at least there about machine process

...

which is good there made and then cooked right there on the spot.

...

so that's good. They can fresh and heart, which I like.

...

Yeah. So I've just con here and

...

you know, for me here, it's only ten three in the morning, listening to you to cook.

...

I'm getting very hungry. So make sure you make a plate for me.

...

and I will join you with they're ready.

...

And

...

I think everyone's mute except for me,

...

But the

...

This has been good.

...

Yeah. I I'm laughing it because I was

...

is talking to you Red bill that I realized that I was totally odd to

...

I

...

you were talking ...So so I had a

...

moment Blitz and the kits in here because Melissa has

...

tell me something about what what she was cooking over there.

...

she's right now. She's falling up and rolling up the

...

the the various

...

are our pillows right now, and so she's making them all into small balls. I'm gonna

...

make a quick picture so that I can share on the website later, and you can see how how

...

how that's looking. But apparently,

...

she's pretty pleased with how the

...

the consistency of the the dough is

...

it is feeling right now, and this probably because I was continuing to need why

...

she was talking and chopping things. And the way I needed it,

...

I needed it the same way I would need

...

pizza dough. So, you know, some some

...

some pounding, some chopping on it, some some, you know, sort of

...

pushing it back and forth the way, you know, a cat needs you and she's

...

who's giving you a cuddle. We have to have cats on the show. You know,

...

just imperative. But

...

rental, I didn't miss the end of what you were sharing there just because

...

because I ...because I took my headphones off to hear hear at Melissa face me in the real world.

...

with

...

you were talking about lone and the tacos you like. And

...

Are you of the

...

soft so use the sort of the soft

...

folding taco or you of the hard shell?

...

Well, because I'm a messy eater, I would say

...

outside of home, I use the South shop button top wraps.

...

when at home my of the heart shells. It's

...

just the sound the cracking when you're digging your belt into the

...

the ingredients there will different me different

...

cheese onions and everything you cut out and put in those

...

Just amazing. You know, I I like those

...

again,

...

paid to hard shows at home, and that's helping them out.

...

And like

...

I said, when you guys have finished that and if we ready for someone

...

sample. Just let me

...

Yeah., bad you're in Toronto because third diagram the lake today, Cookie is up

...

So that got how quickly you can drive here.

...

So just when everybody knows, what's just happening in the kitchen here,

...

is ...and this is a new thing for me.

...

I have never filipino you know, peppers

...

in a pot before and sort of

...

similar before before before you

...

to him in a dish. And that is exactly what is happening right now in List of Kitchen.

...

So now I I I personally asked

...

Randall just now about whether he was a hard

...

Taco, like shallower or or soft Taco,

...

shell kinda of guy because

...

sort of ...as I was doing my research beforehand,

...

that's part of, like, you know, the

...

debates as to to text cuisine is is

...

were was the hard ta developed

...

like in the United States or was it

...

was it something that was that was ...that was done and in in that

...

to code originally, and there's a bit of debate online around that.

...

I gather that the Taco Bell

...

franchise tries to take credit at one stage to the game of being the heart

...

taco person and Melissa is just shaking your head on the other side of the kitchen because

...

there's a lot of evidence, including, I believe some patterns that suggest that that is not

...

the case and that that it it actually was

...

develop

...

by by people and and ...well by

...

families, whether that was

...

in Mexico itself or or

...

or sort of Mexican Americans.

...

So now do you know anything more about that sort the side of the

...

Just melissa is just un unmute herself. So

...

So I was showing my head and making ugly faces because

...

typically,

...

like, whether you're out,

...

or at home,

...

we never use, like, hard taco shows.

...

the ones you go to the store and it's on the aisle. This is international foods.

...

and their el pass old Paso brand.

...

when I was growing up, like, we would buy those

...

for taco nine where we just had, like,

...

hamburger, cheese, lettuce,

...

maybe some, you know, cut tomatoes, but

...

those tacos are like,

...

The worst version of tacos that I think exists.

...

it's very much a comfort food for me because, like, that's what we had when we're growing up, but

...

I would never go to the Mexican restaurant and have a hard shell taco. That was like a

...

pre prepared thing that wasn't a folded up.

...

corn tortilla that had been fried,

...

right there at the restaurant to be this flavorful delicious thing.

...

So those hard chills are just

...

a really poor imitation of something that's just fantastic.

...

in my opinion,

...

Yeah. Now.

...

Yeah. No.

...

And

...

and

...

So ...what where there we go.

...

that this actually was something I also found in my my research

...

apparently, as text Max cuisine became more popular

...

filler around the world and with different people

...

visiting and discovering text with the

...

that hard taco shell partially developed as a way

...

because the soft

...

her shell does not have the same shelf life.

...

And so it they were actually developed as a way of

...

kind of

...

sporting tacos in that taco sort of met

...

the clean cuisine culture around the world because there's something that

...

stays long on has headline shelf life.

...

and can be delivered in grocery stores and

...

and and sent to this to different parts of the world. So

...

So that would be ...that would be something that has been adapted here from the

...

you know, I guess, the the cultural appreciation for

...

for for for Mexican cuisine and as a way of sort of

...

getting not mexican and cuisine and into different parts of the world.

...

Now as far as, like, text mats,

...

when we think of, like, when I was thinking of my research earlier,

...

And a lot of the foods that I actually thought of as Mexican, it turns out

...

are actually text. And and as I said of said earlier,

...

you know, these are the kind of foods that are as

...

you know, seconds, well, as

...

as Mexican mistreated into Texas,

...

and they didn't have the typical ingredients available.

...

do them that they would have in

...

in Mexico.

...

they they started to to to improvise

...

their they're cuisine with different different things that that were about

...

And

...

And then also as future generations of of

...

can Americans sort of grew up with American cuisine as well as

...

you know, their traditional Mexican cuisine. They

...

further sort of

...

sort of modified some of those recipes to meet what what

...

what they ...what they and their friends

...

you know, were used to and had access to

...

and one of those improvisation

...

is the whole

...

breakfast taco. And it apparently started in one

...

can family's kitchen just because the

...

the mom was was

...

was making, you know, that mixture of, you know, a little bit of

...

you know, home comfort Mexican cuisine with what was available and

...

and making it a part of their breakfast routine.

...

and when they first went to

...

you know, they didn't if first think that it would be something that would be commercially viable

...

something that other people would like. And I believe I was

...

remember the the family it's

...

it's a staple restaurant or sort of one of the originals sort of talk

...

chains in Austin, which was started by a Mexican

...

family, and I'm gonna get my ipad out because I purposely left the art

...

pull on my ipad on online.

...

that I can look at up but

...

They I gathered that they were one of the earlier

...

families to to sort of introduce

...

be taco slash

...

breakfast Taco to Austin, Texas, I believe it was

...

partially soaked by Southwest then made that popular

...

around the world thanks to a number of journalists

...

being in town and and taking a liking to it,

...

but while, I just look up the article and what that original

...

Taco establishment was. I'm gonna pass things over to Melissa to explain what she's doing right now

...

she's been cutting up

...

potatoes and things like that in the kitchen. And so

...

so that you can

...

see where we're adding in the cooking if you're following

...

right this text for a minute.

...

I absolutely go ahead, random

...

We were talking earlier about that welcome home Canadian drink to.

...

Well,

...

I did a little research just now.

...

and Found there was a near company the first started.

...

clam and tomatoes years together back nineteen thirty five.

...

Canada really didn't start doing their

...

name Drink until

...

nineteen sixty six Show.

...

there might be an argument to where it started, but just a live research, I thought I'd share that with the group.

...

Interesting. Thank you, Randall. I definitely think

...

gonna have to go into that history and cope

...

are in a different show to find out all the backstory on that.

...

So now I'm passing things over to Melissa. She can

...

she can say that's what's happening in the kitchen here.

...

Thank you. And that's a ...that's a great fine randall. And

...

I also need to explore that head a further, I think.

...

it's probably in it in another episode, maybe I can be drinking.

...

So what I'm done is I've taken also the

...

hey those. One thing we didn't do because they are

...

fairly tiny new potatoes as we did not do any sort of chopping or die

...

thing. So

...

we've got these really nice yummy

...

This par boiled

...

potatoes that we are then going to smash into a pan.

...

when we cook them to kinda crisp them up and not fry them, but just give him a little chris

...

after we've seasoned,

...

So, you know, in your kitchen, if you had bigger potatoes, you would definitely dice and chop them up

...

Let may actually do that just

...

to

...

make them all smaller, but we've done that. I put

...

jalapenos on the boil, but I also forgot to turn on the burners.

...

so we're going a little full of that. But the rationale behind that is

...

is there's this fantastic

...

and there's two or three different

...

brands of this in Austin, but

...

It's po ratio. Me, which means, I think the

...

the chicken king, and then el puerto rico,

...

which would mean ...and I'm horrible at my rolling my rs and spanish. So

...

the apologies that Puerto Rico would be, like, the rich

...

chicken or delicious chickens. So a po, you know,

...

Puerto Rico, both have this fantastic green

...

so spicy salsa that is often mistaken for an

...

holo based sauce because it has a really creamy consistency.

...

So

...

we're boiling jalapenos and and

...

I've looked at copycat recipes on Rabbits and online.

...

Some people say, definitely they never boil them.

...

that they would put

...

jalapeno straight on the grill just to give them a little roast.

...

but I actually had a student who worked there.

...

and and I asked her, like, you've gotta tell me this recipe, like,

...

I need this in my life.

...

and she said we boil them.

...

we use oil and salt.

...

Nothing else.

...

there's no off avocado. There's no wine juice. No. Nothing additional. It's just

...

those three basic ingredients. And so

...

I also have never boiled Jalapenos for any other reason in my life.

...

other than the make this one also that we're making today. So I've got them on the boil

...

I'm looking around at what we need to do next.

...

and it's basically going to be checking on these

...

tomatoes those that are roasting. They're not brown yet, but I've got this

...

open up the five hundred. So

...

I think another few minutes, and then we'll be able to take them out, cool them,

...

the salsa suspects will be almost ready to go after they're cool.

...

we just need to blend it up, throw some salt and some spices if we want.

...

and then we're gonna be ready for, like

...

the main part of the show, which I think is

...

do these tortilla work or not?

...

And so they've been resting

...

Erica, actually yet, her needing job was spent

...

attack. I'm like, this is way different than the ones I made yesterday is that were just

...

kinda like, dry and flaky and not a little soft. And I don't wanna say the word

...

couple sorts tortilla because that sounds weird, but they were just

...

sauce and simple and beautiful. So

...

I think they've been wrestling long enough that we can actually try to hook one up

...

see if it worked out. We're obviously not ready because

...

our eggs are sitting here waiting. Our potatoes are weaving, but we can

...

check out the tortilla to see if it works and compare it

...

perhaps with

...

another tortilla. It's a store bought one. What do you think Erica?

...

up

...

sounds great. And I found the

...

family that according to the austin Eater,

...

was the family that sort of brought the

...

the

...

breakfast, Tortilla to

...

to

...

to the Austin area, and it was the their original

...

well they're chain of restaurants, I believe they still have one original one in Austin, which is the

...

house

...

okay.

...

oh i

...

Sorry.

...

I I've got. I've got so

...

So ...and I believe the family is

...

Well well, one of the current family members is Diana

...

does the

...

So Melissa just kind of research

...

and looking at this and putting her thumbs up.

...

just a couple o'clock to Molly.

...

Oh, there's couple smiley. Okay. Yeah.

...

I gather it one stage of the game. They had a great big chain of them, and then some of them have

...

have since clothes, but there's there's certainly some

...

still around, then Melissa is now doing doing the research here.

...

But I gather that that what sort of lot

...

them into deciding to actually share some of their home

...

to

...

sort of

...

Mexican,

...

text because that they've changed with with living in

...

in Texas based on the ingredients.

...

sort of meals was that

...

one of the the original

...

you know, sort of starter of the

...

the

...

Molly house in the Basket family had been visiting

...

California, and he's seen all these taco stands

...

everywhere and seeing the popularity of them there that

...

this that he decided that maybe maybe

...

America was was ready for for their their home.

...

goodness of of Mexican because that they were serving up

...

their family and their their own kitchens.

...

So there's there's that little bit of history

...

I ...what melissa is now on is

...

she is now chopping

...

some green onions.

...

for the self i police. We've got the charles up for our toppings for the

...

this for our topic. So ...yeah.

...

Yeah. I'm I'm very excited about all this. I'm taking a little

...

right now at the

...

at our our

...

are

...

turkey, which are currently underneath the cloth.

...

why they're sort of, like guess rising a little bit and stuff that they're doing there.

...

What's

...

the official word in baking. They are resting.

...

Oh, I can't like ...and they can rest according to the recipe and anywhere from

...

fifteen minutes to a few hours. I don't think overnight,

...

but I do have a question for Erica here. Oh, that's your bills.

...

Nice. Okay. We have bacon entry so here.

...

I don't really either very much. Although,

...

one of my favorite tacos in Austin was it

...

el chile though, and it was a potato cherry taco, which

...

if you speak Spanish and you order in Spanish, it's kind of a joke because it's

...

pop of he jury. So

...

papa

...

are injury. So it can be a eu for the middle.

...

body parts anyway, hilarious.

...

we've got this tree. So do we wanna just cook one?

...

sausage, and then do you want bacon or no beacons? I'm

...

I'm gangster sure you was like also, I'm guessing your husband i like

...

he doesn't eat me. Air could just ask me

...

if my husband was going to wanna eat,

...

some of the bacon injury. So, but he he doesn't eat

...

worked or even a lot of these all ever. So

...

we're just kind of this chicken and fish household.

...

I have no qualms cooking it.

...

and I think we should cook a little bit of it, but we don't need all that.

...

Oh, you're paying for that. Okay. Perfect. So I'm looking around. I'm in the

...

pass this mind back to Erica because I need to check on these boiling

...

things and the things in the oven.

...

So

...

Yeah. So as we're we're sort of at the stage where everything is

...

cooking up. Is there anybody in our audience

...

who has visited Austin, Texas before.

...

or Texas in general.

...

that would like to to share some of their favorite to

...

experiences in in the states or some of the

...

great things that they did or even if there was, like, any wonder

...

all sort of

...

food, surprises or or interesting things that they learned

...

why they were visiting there.

...

so I'm gonna just invite everybody who's in our audience to up

...

to the stage and anybody who'd like to come, feel free to

...

to come up and

...

if you do not feel free to ignore my invitation,

...

Oh, things are smelling good here in the kitchen, by the way.

...

I were getting. We're getting some of the the Aroma

...

of the melissa have just opened up

...

the oven just now, and so the aroma wasted out

...

of

...

of the the roasting tomatoes and the roasting onions and

...

they smell simply fantastic.

...

And now I'm getting really hungry, and she's picking out all the the

...

the potatoes right now. That we've got these little nice, you know, the summer new

...

potatoes, and she's chopping them up into little pieces right now.

...

I'm really curious.

...

Melissa West, You can just speak through my microphone right now if you wish.

...

with these

...

little new potatoes. How did these actually go inside the

...

this tackle or are they ...are they sort of on the on the outside? Like, with

...

but

...

how does this happen?

...

So this potato

...

I have to take myself phone. So You're right myself talking, but

...

this potato will go inside the taco. And so

...

what we're doing today is we have a few different fillers

...

eggs

...

potato bacon if we want treats. So if we want black beans if we want,

...

and we just

...

we're gonna make a decision, Like, what do we wanted in our taco? And we're just gonna

...

put it all in there and then choose our salsa and put on top. So

...

I mean, typically, Taco would be two

...

main ingredients in Texas, but sometimes you add that third ingredient

...

and then whatever

...

other toppings you want.

...

Nice. Nice. I'm getting excited for this. Okay. Now we've got Nick

...

here on the stage. So Nick, if you wanna unmute yourself,

...

And I don't know if you ...if it's Texas

...

experience that you'd like to share or or you you

...

you have some your own cooking tips that you'd like to to add it on the show.

...

but we we'd love to hear you know, if you wanna unmute yourself.

...

Nick, can you hear us?

...

Nick, if you're talking right now, you're currently on mute

...

so I don't know if you're new to Fireside, but if you are,

...

you will see at the bottom of your screen, there is a little microphone

...

So what you wanna do is you wanna tap on that microphone,

...

and that will unmute you so that we can all hear you on the show.

...

And just why We're waiting for Nick to unmute himself,

...

Lily share this little thing. She says thank you, Erica, friend

...

had invited me to text so still haven't gone. And here, we just

...

made the culinary version of tacos. Oh, yeah.

...

I hope those are good. Lily, are you eating them right now?

...

Oh She's laughing

...

So maybe not. I I'm getting really excited to eat these.

...

So Nick,

...

whenever you figure out how to unmute yourself,

...

feel free to go ahead and jump into the conversation.

...

in the meantime,

...

I know that

...

Melissa who is figuring out what she's doing on the other side of the kitchen,

...

has has she's just gotten back

...

from Texas. Oh, and we also have Randall on

...

stage so I will let the list of talk about Texas a little bit later.

...

and Randall, if you wanna unmute yourself,

...

Well, thank you for that. And I think as you know, I am a traveler and one of the things

...

enjoyable about traveling as tasting food destination, different ones,

...

I know we need do travel to summer resorts, unfortunately, some of the bigger chains

...

are more

...

American style food, so you may get some text mix, but not

...

very much. So encourage anybody especially know as

...

travel restrictions first started to lift, especially though the United States

...

if you can

...

get down to text and press on the great switch down there.

...

if you can get to Mexico, get down and chase some of the great foods there.

...

I hope you continue doing this Area as these showed her interesting.

...

just to hearing the sound, but actually,

...

smelling the food but just hearing what melissa have been doing there

...

and it gives me a lot of

...

myself, I like to do prep work when it comes to dinner, like to participate in the process.

...

And at the end of it when I'm painting it, I can enjoy it even more.

...

So always say, get out and travel, enjoy food,

...

responsibly

...

and if you wanna drink all day, I'm here with you. So let's read.

...

I a

...

Thank you. Thank you, Randall, and I believe Randall got his

...

travel show that comes on a six Pm on Fridays. Is that

...

It it

...

night

...

correct. Randall or is a a different time on Friday.

...

Pm new time.

...

Oh, sorry about that. Nine Pm Eastern time, and

...

you've got your next show on tonight.

...

that is correct it's called travel con. I have a lighter version of

...

the show compared to last week, so we'll make your fun

...

and talk about great destinations and why I enjoy them.

...

and when I think other people enjoy them. So

...

look forward to it. Thank you.

...

Yeah. I I I I agree with ...well, I guess

...

I grew with Randall on the the whole whole standpoint of

...

one of the things that I absolutely love about when I'm traveling is

...

getting out and trying the local cuisine. I'm sometimes a little bit

...

die hard about that, like, where a lens just off of a plane and the a

...

absolutely exhausted that after having sort of travels for

...

like, twelve plus hours and just needing to

...

sleep yet. I I always set of force myself

...

to

...

go down. And even if it's, even if it's because I'm exhausted, even if it's not

...

stepping out of the hotel that first. I'm I make sure I at least go down to, like, you know, the hoo

...

hell and

...

have something that is is local to the area

...

where I go to bed along with, usually a local beverage

...

choice depending on

...

where I am, that's often beer, but if

...

I'm not in the beer drinking area, then then it might be might be

...

liner it might be a cocktail.

...

And

...

well, this is not text. I I have

...

has my head wrapping around sort of some of the

...

it's not Mexican either. But I I've

...

I've had my as we've been cooking today, I've had my my head

...

going back down to to my last visit to South America columbia.

...

And as we've been talking kind of about some of the home cook

...

in those areas, which are always mine.

...

the things that make me the most excited when I'm visiting an area.

...

I I remember that

...

the first night of arriving in Columbia, and I I guess

...

partially, this is been in my head because on on route there, I actually

...

to stopped in Austin in the airport. And

...

I remember that that first night sort of having, like, you know,

...

just a great people of

...

local sort of chicken suits that

...

that that you would've have be, you know, being kind of like a

...

a local home favorite in in the kitchen. And sort of the

...

for that, you know, bit of comfort food before we bed that person

...

night and and having a having a local brew down there,

...

Now as as I've been talking and we've been

...

sharing and

...

about sort of the local cuisine in different areas. It's also

...

I mean, this was ...this is part of the the idea this show too is, I think,

...

as as we're exploring cuisine in a

...

place. One of the

...

one of the fantastic ways to learn about a culture, even if you can't

...

travel there. You can't travel there yet, which i mean ...let's face it with the

...

have them as there's been a lot of. We can't travel there yet.

...

This is this is one way that it it allows you to start

...

to to have a bit of that travel is is by

...

by learning about life sharing by finding out

...

how how the people in different areas cook their cuisine.

...

I do know that later this month, at the end of the month, my friend

...

Raul will be joining us from Mexico, and

...

I believe we're gonna be making an out on that show.

...

I have to double check, but I believe it's gonna be in. And so

...

he will be joining us from his kitchen in Mexico and and

...

and making those up with us, And it be interesting to, you know, kind of

...

cover what some of the flight differences might be from

...

from the way he cooks both in Mexico to

...

to how

...

how, you know, some of the the sort of the the text

...

versions that are made in Austin, Texas.

...

Although I have to say with Raul raul has also been influenced

...

by other cultures as well.

...

because he himself at the world java. I know him because we

...

he was one of my regular walking buddies when he lived in

...

And thank you refer for a number of years and

...

he's also, you know, had had some influence

...

from from living over in Europe and in

...

in

...

in Paris for a while.

...

So right now, what's happening here in

...

And Melissa kitchen is she has just

...

taken those peppers off the stove that have the

...

cooking up on the stove, and she has

...

poured out the boiling hot water, and they're

...

currently sitting in cold water with bunch of the ice cubes on top of them.

...

I'll take a picture to share this on the site just because

...

This is interesting to me because I've never seen this done before with with

...

with peppers, and I've actually never made a

...

salsa so that is predominantly how, you know, based

...

which is what I believe Melissa is currently in the process of

...

of making. So

...

And she's gonna take over. It looks like. Yes.

...

So I'll pass it over to her.

...

So I put the

...

you're still

...

you're still

...

oh I'm there you go. Okay. So I've put the

...

jalapenos in the little ice bath just to cool them off,

...

that when I'm trying to

...

cut the stem off, maybe try to build the skin, though I'm not

...

I don't think it's necessary completely to try the pill the skin off.

...

like I just wanna be able to handle them

...

in a way where they're not gonna burn my hands so that we

...

that way, we can just blitz them up with some

...

canola oil

...

a little bit of salt to make that salsa.

...

the I feel like everything is coming together to the point where

...

we are ready to crack a couple eggs.

...

put some salt and pepper in there.

...

I cut the potatoes

...

because I did want some slightly smaller

...

pieces. And so what I'm gonna do right now is seasoned them,

...

And

...

This is one of those things where, you know, a lot of people just like salt and pepper,

...

but I think you taco these up a little. I do have

...

just the basic

...

taco seasoning, but I've also got

...

some dried pepper from my garden.

...

last year, which which was just a mix of all sorts of different

...

peppers, like, actually mostly peruvian,

...

some jalapeno. So it's it's kind of a little bit of a lot of peppers.

...

which I dried and then and then

...

ground them up.

...

I've got Cayenne, which will give us a little bit of spice.

...

and smoked Paprika paprika, which I feel like

...

is a secret ingredient in almost everything.

...

So I'm gonna just sprinkle

...

a little bit

...

of the talk seasoning on top of these potatoes because I do

...

like, a little taco seasoning on them.

...

probably use about a half a teaspoon to teaspoon.

...

I always pretty much do this to taste, and

...

If I'm cooking meat, any sort of meat with

...

taco those seasoning. I put way more than I think I need.

...

because a lot of it's gonna come off in the oil you're using your even off the grill. So

...

and just do this to face. So

...

I've done that. I think we've gotta a break open one of these three. So

...

sausages. Because the we were gonna cook that in the pan is

...

just like you would cook hamburger meat.

...

if you're making tacos, so we wanna put probably one in the pan

...

cook it up. We're gonna keep our meat separate from our eggs and potatoes, but

...

I think, right after we try to make the salsa, we're ready to go on the meats.

...

C and the potatoes and

...

The last thing we wanna do is prep those tortilla.

...

So everything will remain hot enough, I think,

...

because these tortilla are not straight of Out Bang.

...

they do need

...

anywhere from thirty seconds, the forty five

...

two minute on each side to cook them.

...

if you were taking them out of a bed, which you might be,

...

today or another time

...

one of my main complaints in Canada is that

...

when I'm out and I get a taco

...

that Tortilla has not been put on the grill

...

it's just like they took another of the bag, slam the ingredients on here you go.

...

but everywhere, that tortilla, even if it's pre made,

...

has been given a little bit of a

...

ten seconds on each side warming up.

...

So it's for even in a little bit of oil. So we're gonna

...

we're not doing that space as ours as fresh, but

...

if

...

we were pulling them out of a bag. We've shipped in that ten second foot on his five. I put mine directly on my guest.

...

grill

...

can put them in a pan or do whatever. But

...

Eric has got the jury so ready to go.

...

I'm gonna excuse myself from the mic because I feel like I'm just

...

talking so talking, and I'm gonna just do some background work with the beans.

...

just to get them warmed up.

...

in a in a pot, and I'm gonna start

...

on the salsa.

...

Now with this, what do you want me to

...

Let me see. So with this Tree so, is there a light? Is there a

...

casing on it. Yeah.. Okay. Oh,

...

I'm like oh my god. That's so where to about all the rest this stuff. I kids see what's in Front.

...

So Erica has taken the casing off of the treat. So now you

...

we can just literally keep it like that until let's raise to cook.

...

because we can

...

with our spatula just

...

chop it up in the pan as it's cooking. You can ...I guess, pre

...

do that, but I don't think you need to do that to your hands. I think we can just do it while it's cooking. Okay.

...

so. Okay.

...

we are ready to go, I think ...let mean, yeah. The Jalapenos are not

...

hot to the touch anymore.

...

I'm not peeling them, but I'm just taking them out. We do wanna cut that stem off.

...

you don't need to cut them any further or worry out.

...

getting your hands

...

you know, giving that Jalapenos used on your hands,

...

but we're just going to put them into

...

something to blend them up.

...

and I actually have already in one container in a

...

I'm weird. I have one of these hand.

...

that's super easy to clean.

...

I also have an enormous. I don't know how many court

...

mixer

...

but I always prefer this tiny little hand with my

...

this what's this thing called? The cocktail mixer. I use a cocktail mixer

...

to just blend this stuff up. So I've got tomatoes,

...

and the onions one because I forgot to do

...

the garlic

...

roasting in the oven I put it in with the jalapeno the boil

...

I'm just peeling one of those in there popping it in, and then all this saw

...

with the tomato and and onion and now the garlic names is a

...

pension salt.

...

or more. Depending on how salty we like salsa. But

...

put the pinch of salt in there.

...

mix it up. We can

...

Let Erica theresa so I've got some tortilla chips.

...

and then we can just use the same

...

mixing setup up for our

...

are Jalapeno salsa. So I'm in mute myself so you don't have to hear

...

the sounds of the hand mixer. And I think

...

Erica, what do you think? You think we leave it all for about fifteen seconds.

...

can invite people to

...

chat, and and

...

So blend this up a little bit.

...

it looks really nice, like, not too liquidy, but it is

...

So pretty warm to the such, Oh, it's nice and sweet.

...

Sorry., Eric, I just put my finger in and list my fingers. I'm not gonna use

...

this finger again, I swear before It was ran. But like, it ten. Woo.

...

It tastes pretty good. I just

...

going in on my face like because I'm a silly person

...

we're gonna add a little more salt to that. But

...

I think it's almost ready to go.

...

after in transfer that was a start on the Jalapeno salsa.

...

and then we are ready they're rock and roll.

...

on the actual making the target.

...

This is kind of awesome. I'm just

...

looking down into this salsa and it looks fantastic

...

thick.

...

I'm taking a little picture for

...

for the blog later,

...

And oh,

...

I I like the way that melissa cook. She's got this

...

lovely lovely

...

little sort of wooden bowl for the for her her sea salt

...

And I don't know. There's just

...

For me, like, cooking and spending time in the kit

...

it's it's a very sensual activity. It's

...

very much about

...

Well, we'll that just thought the senses, and

...

So, like, you know, your

...

your touch here smells your

...

your colors, with the textures,

...

and her kitchen just completely

...

things to my soul.

...

which is good because when I was looking up and

...

everything on text food earlier, that was one of the things that they they

...

talk about. They talk about how

...

Text next cuisine.

...

is is soul

...

it's ...an and and part of

...

creating that soil is all about the

...

Yeah. How plays on your senses?

...

and so of revisit my head, eat pray love to with that right now.

...

So melissa is she's just getting out

...

some some some store bought tacos,

...

So

...

we are we're to so that we can we can ...earth not

...

store about tacos, but fifty ...for Cells or so that we

...

or tortilla tips so that we can taste test

...

these this salsa that we've got here. So I'm just stepping in

...

my chip

...

And

...

Not very nice.

...

to the diesel.

...

Maybe

...

a tad bit more.

...

Although the chips are healthy. So

...

that

...

It's nice because if in it

...

it's warm right now too, which is just, you know,

...

sort of adds to that whole

...

whole mix. So the sentences is just now.

...

now she's added a little bit more salt gonna

...

of a little take. Clearly, I'm using that as an excuse to have another change

...

the salsa.

...

Now. You see what Fireside needs to invent next

...

is a way that we can kinda transport these flavors

...

through the through the audio waves.

...

so that you and the audience there could be taste

...

seeing these different things as as

...

Melissa and I taste them here in the kitchen.

...

So

...

Yeah. We we've got some classic there. Thanks

...

thanks so Thanks hook. So

...

we'll have to we'll have to put that in the the mixer

...

her platform request is is the the the

...

that

...

the taste television vision coming through the the audio wave

...

So one of the things I love about was passing me here in the kitchen right now

...

is that also that was just made. It was made with a very small amount

...

ingredients. And this is something that I'm constantly

...

The more I kind of

...

evolved as a as a

...

as as a chef myself.

...

is the more I've come to realize that some of the best things that we taste

...

don't involve a tremendous number of ingredients. It's just, you know,

...

mixing a few good foods and spices together.

...

to create, like, a little bit of magic for your taste buds.

...

Melissa is just

...

running around the kitchen, so of getting the next few things made. I'm feeling a little bit

...

like, not very good

...

shutter. She's most of.

...

but ...but she's putting your thumbs up about the the

...

small number of ingredients that that can make a little bit of magic for our taste buds

...

she has currently in her

...

mixing cocktail

...

glass, which I'll share with you later, She currently put our

...

Jalapeno peppers been there to to get ready to to mix up into a alpha in a

...

in the next few minutes, and she's cracking some eggs and

...

opening up a can of black beans here and

...

the

...

Oh, black beans are going on the stove. Now there's these are all things that I think as like

...

canadian who

...

has not really learned

...

proper from Mexican or text. Cooking.

...

It's it's one of the things that that I think we need to

...

discover along the way as we're we're sort of experiencing and making cuisine with with

...

with people that come from those cultures and

...

understand what's supposed to be done properly because I learned today

...

things like, you know, making sure that the

...

her shell is is is actually

...

heated up before before adding in the

...

mixture of ingredients in there and seeing that that the

...

the black beans are actually

...

hooked stuff and he up too before they go into things and so

...

Let's this is as as we you get me

...

she's probably should've Of sitting there thinking, oh, these Canadian

...

They're long overview for such

...

cookie blessed.

...

So ...yeah, I'm I'm getting getting very excited over what.

...

happening in kitchen because it looks getting closer to to eating time.

...

So right now, she is adding some

...

pepper over our

...

Wait I think she added in

...

oh, yeah. She's coming right now with a sprinkle of salt.

...

are going into our eggs as well.

...

So

...

And

...

And we're getting ...we've got the

...

Oh, she's ...she's he's causing And thinking about it.

...

we've got

...

What have we got? Oh she's it's okay. It's she was the deciding On like the best

...

livestream for for for beating things up. So so right now, she's feeding up our eggs

...

with support. Apparently, a fork is is the

...

preferred method over the

...

over the sort of the whisker.

...

And

...

this a small

...

thing with

...

Yeah.

...

okay, of course, I was trying to figure out out what what what the difference was, because I ...so

...

so, yeah. So it it was besides, which makes a lot of sense.

...

So

...

So, yeah. So this is what's happening we're we're

...

where we've got everything I think

...

there's some oil that's now happening

...

and I believe that little bit of tap canola oil

...

And is that ...where's that going with that going?

...

and

...

Oh, it's going into our salsa that's gonna be

...

in with the jalapenos. And I think she's I think, Melissa says just that

...

take over the audio. So I am turning myself

...

So Siri,

...

it's, I have no idea how authentic

...

salsa made with oil is, but I'm telling you it is

...

absolutely incredible on top of a egg potato.

...

breakfast Taco. It ...like, if ...I was dubious at first,

...

when I found out this recipe, but I know that

...

I spent a couple years in austin loving

...

this ratio and Rico. So

...

that usually comes with it's it's like a chicken road.

...

place. So they they cook whole chickens and half chickens.

...

I guess, hold chickens and then custom and the half chicken, but you go when you order either a half chicken meal,

...

or a whole chicken meal, and you get this green salsa

...

and red salsa on the side.

...

along with your other at wants, like, they could give you your your corn tortilla is

...

a grilled onion, a little bit lime. It's like

...

you go there, you get a whole package meal for about fifteen Us dollars.

...

it

...

was actually when I went home for the month I was home recently,

...

was my favorite meal of the whole trip.

...

because I think that

...

simple foods are sometimes way better than all the other ones that

...

are trying to be this big

...

huge trendy, whatever thing. So it was my favorite meal of the trip

...

it

...

did not disappoint me. So as weird as it sounds like

...

this salsa is so good, and I learned how they make it so I could

...

put it in stuff here just to transport myself back to that place. So

...

The problem was how I've done this, I think, is it ...I'm trying to use this cocktail

...

mixer with this hand blender, and I completely forgot about

...

how you really need to drizzle this oil in slowly.

...

and blend it. So I think that

...

I'm gonna have to ask Erica that help me

...

with the grizzly oil and while I do this,

...

And so I'm guessing you guys don't wanna hear both of us right here.

...

mike dump.

...

blending

...

Okay.

...

So we're gonna just pause

...

I'm turning on just we're gonna sound effect for a second.

...

like actually not too bad, and we're adding in

...

a little tiny bit more. Oil,

...

into event

...

So we're getting a nice green

...

sort

...

salsa paste in here. I'm thankful supposed to add a little tiny bit more oil.

...

good

...

And I on now.

...

I'm gonna excited just try that.

...

Oh, hey. Somebody requested to speak a second ago.

...

And I accidentally closed things before that person. I've

...

brought up to the stage. So that person wants to request to speak again, I will

...

make it so that you can come up to the stage since I

...

just lost that. You need some salt as that it's ...okay.

...

Melissa is doing doing sort of all sorts

...

of

...

we're getting good of strange here at the kitchen said,

...

So

...

does ever request it ...who somebody requested the second ago that they wanted to come up and

...

speak

...

your welcome come up. I don't know who it was because I was

...

tied up in our cooking and wasn't paying attention.

...

So oh, there we are.

...

So

...

I believe it was Margaret there that just asked to come and speak. And so if that was Margaret,

...

you are welcome to come on up.

...

Maybe that was a request from inviting me through a different. Show.

...

The side effects here on Fireside

...

chat is is

...

sort of look you get the notices that are coming through the other shows why your dear your own think

...

somebody wanted to be invited to the stage. I think I said, oh, yeah.

...

sure I'll be on their show and the end my show. So anyhow,

...

Oh, you should see the color of this piece that just

...

like, it's sort of the south, but just came through the jalapenos. It's

...

this lovely lake green line

...

color that

...

Oh,

...

List is making a bit of a face right now. I think it might be too hot at

...

the moment book for her is that what's going on?

...

Yeah. So she's adding a little bit of thoughts in there.

...

But I have to say the color is it's just fantastic.

...

she's doing, like, you know, that dance that you do when you've had

...

something really, really hot if your making sorts a different

...

faces of

...

kind of

...

yeah. Pinch faces. I will hand it over to her and she can she

...

I think part of the sorry. When I was blending it up

...

to Avocado with, and it just ...it made me cough. I'm like, oh my god.

...

really spicy in the air everywhere.

...

so I think the issue is

...

How

...

the how is probably didn't boil enough. And so they're a little ...like, they're a touch

...

fresh tasting,

...

but this solves it.

...

excuse ...it is spicy. Like, that's the thing about even with

...

jalapeno to

...

to me today, like, this is a spicy

...

salsa. And so

...

use spelling if you're trying this from home and you're not the

...

spicy person. I'm not gonna be stereotypical and say all Canadians are not.

...

spicy loving people, because that wouldn't be fair at all.

...

but be careful if you're doing this, especially if you know your jalapenos are really high

...

But

...

I still think it needs salt. I'm gonna get Erica to face it.

...

Yeah. Some salt.

...

I

...

So you're not the one. We're gonna move over to Air

...

okay. So I've got my chips here, and I'm just going with the small

...

start with based on on

...

Melissa that figure out the kitchen sit in her face after trying some

...

It's

...

I I think the the the the note on on on

...

Level of dealing with spice,

...

comes from depending on where they are in the country because we've got

...

different quizzes all across Canada because we've got

...

cultures from all around the world that live across Canada.

...

While I grew up in Ontario a

...

spent most of my adult life in B and

...

surrounded by a lot of Asian cuisine, where there are more spices

...

And so so I'm guessing my

...

my spice tolerance is probably better than the average Italian

...

Anyhow here it goes.

...

Mhmm.

...

result.

...

That's good. There is definitely a kick to it.

...

get a little bit of a bird in the back of your tongue and the back of your throat as you as you next.

...

I'll have a nice warm feeling throat. This would be good

...

winter before to go.

...

you might not need a scarf.

...

But ...but it's it's good it's tasty.

...

So it just adds a little bit more salt. So I'm I'm curious

...

know how that changes thing. So I'm sticking in another tip.

...

It's it's interesting. Okay. So some

...

most the thing it's on the cuff now. So she's she's just adding a bit more salt.

...

I'm finding to get really interesting fills self. Is that actually cut

...

but he's a little bit. Is that what you're doing?

...

just Oh, it just needs salt. Okay.

...

...because I was trying to figure that out. I was trying to figure out, like, okay. Is that was that second bite that I took left

...

warm on the back of my throat or or just that my back to my throat now getting a used

...

to the bird.

...

So, but she says no.

...

she says it's just it's just about the taste.

...

So

...

That's good.

...

no. And I learned something new today because,

...

I didn't realize that boiling the jalapenos actually make

...

them the little tiny bit less spicy the them when they're fresh.

...

Is that correct multiple something? She doesn't know.

...

She's just been taught that you boils them first.

...

before you

...

before you you put them into to this form of a salsa,

...

So in our kitchen right now,

...

we have got everything all scattered

...

on the kitchen counter. It looks like like my my version of cooking at the moment,

...

Bliss is

...

safety of your head. She might be somebody who better craving up as she goes this

...

opposed to me, but not. She sort of saying, you know, come comes.

...

gotta put a little bit of french in with the with the text mix right now.

...

Is that anybody

...

speak Spanish that knows what come come thought would be in in

...

in in Spanish.

...

No. Okay. A little bit of so anyhow, where ...I think for about

...

start our actual cooking, Like, our actual ...well, we have been cooking as we go, but I think racks

...

gonna we're ready to start, like, actually throwing everything together.

...

So ...and I'm getting a thumbs up from melissa. So I guess

...

that is indeed where we're at.

...

So on that note,

...

What what are we doing first here? Oh, okay. The sausage looks like it's

...

go to the pan

...

And so for those of you that are joining us, we're on

...

on the culture travel show, and we are cooking up

...

today, some text met

...

some text necks.

...

breakfast Tacos. And so we've got a little bit of crease going in the

...

can, We've taken off the cre

...

casing and

...

what's happening right now is

...

I'm just sort of breaking things up with the spatula.

...

we are keeping the creators so separate from our other item was because

...

not everybody

...

each crazy in the mix here.

...

and we want to be able to have everybody joy.

...

are

...

breakfast

...

breakfast

...

tacos.

...

And so other than that,

...

also, on our stove right now, we've got

...

we've got some big themes that are that are sort of heating up in a pot.

...

This is neo the Canadian in the mix here. I did not know that you're supposed to see the

...

black beans before you out them. So

...

So ...yeah, I'm seeing how that can

...

I used to do them in a totally different way when I added them to, like, you know, tackle on the

...

so or, like, you know, to my taco meet where I'd sort of do them more.

...

in a pad frying with like cooking up with vegetables and stuff like that. So this is

...

This is good for me to know how how it done this way. You know,

...

And then in another pan, we've got a little bit

...

oil in there. That correct?

...

Yes. So there's oil in there. And in that pan, we're just

...

about to throw in

...

the potatoes. And, of course, those potatoes are

...

all done up in

...

in a homemade taco seasonings that

...

that Melissa's made from her actual peppers that

...

she's grown in her bat garden, and she's just put some

...

extra virgin olive oil over the whole thing.

...

and is

...

and then she's leaving a section of the pan, and I'm guessing that section of the pan is gonna be for our eggs.

...

Now with our shelves, do we need to do anything with those?

...

we need to roll it out. Okay.

...

put them in there point of

...

do you want me to roll them out?

...

Yeah. Sure.

...

do we have a

...

i wanna moment

...

So we're not seeing it the way that she was taught by her

...

friend Mexican Nancy with the wine bottle and

...

that we are using a

...

Wooden rolling pin here? So

...

and I need to go to that. Okay. Yes. I will take over this.

...

Yep.

...

So melissa is much better at fine language

...

My I'm sharing

...

making all sorts with sign with me adding some flour to the count

...

the top here and

...

so that as I roll out our

...

our Christina cells here.

...

we get things going nicely. So

...

Here I go.

...

Very exciting.

...

it's nice to be able to roll out

...

some dough without having to

...

compete with the cat jumping all over the counter.

...

So when I make Pizza is in my kitchen,

...

I have a very nose and very inclusive little tap

...

by the name of Ella. She's ...any of you guys have ever experienced

...

a tour a shell and know about tortoise.

...

she is high on the the toward level, which is basically the red heads so the cap

...

world. So

...

I was throwing out some pizza dough the other night

...

and

...

and the there, like, you know, here I've got, you know,

...

un hand on the roller or in the other hand, trying to scoop up a cat out of the

...

the counselor before my pizza dough ended up with pat hair all through it.

...

So it it makes

...

make cooking in my house to be

...

a bit of a

...

kind of a combat event sport here, like, you know, building off

...

a very host young lady at the same time as

...

as rolling out your door

...

cooking cooking, whatever it is that you're cooking

...

she's particularly ferocious time that ...if anything that involves

...

Meat or blue cheese.

...

she she is a high fan of blue cheese, and she

...

the second she smells it, you know, like a a beacon call for her.

...

So I've got this rolled out here, and I'm just trying

...

need ...melissa tell me if it is

...

the right size,

...

Okay. She likes it. So do you want me to sort of carry this over?

...

Okay. So we're gonna try this out.

...

got nice thin

...

So here.

...

And it actually feels really good as I lift it up.

...

And now this pan, this is have oil or anything just nothing in.

...

Okay. So so it's gone into the pan on top of the stove.

...

And I gotta take a picture to show you guys so, you know, what looks like.

...

later on,

...

on online when I do up the blog post around this.

...

but I'm actually kinda impressed. I I have tried my hand that

...

sort of preparing some flat bread before when I was in Egypt.

...

And it was a woman in in

...

done sure, I think

...

and she had she they were cooking up the beautiful lovely delicious flat

...

bread

...

that they were putting into

...

Oh, I'm I'm being called over.

...

Oh, okay. So there's little bubbling happening under here, which I

...

think his melissa thing is a good thing and she just flipped it over.

...

saying oh, it's sort of good. It's.

...

But ...yeah, so when I was ...I was

...

you know, this woman who was these two women who were egyptian women who are making up

...

this the flat in Egypt, and they were doing in a wood oven.

...

and their hallway of sort of

...

they didn't roll all things out. It was kind of more

...

lifting method that they did on a board where things got flunk up into the air.

...

and it actually made these lovely black

...

round parcels kind of like what we're doing here. But thicker than this,

...

anyhow, I tried my hand up flipping them and

...

I ended up with something that stuck to the board is

...

through to ed that really looked like the round ball. So

...

I I think Has more creative humor for

...

for for the women rather than

...

the beauty that they were creating with their bread

...

and they really did. That was it was beautiful, and it tasted it to what's chips as well.

...

this is really exciting here. We've got a

...

the bad

...

it an oven top full of all sorts of goodness. So

...

Oh, and we're starting to see a little bit

...

of browning happening on arts or to a show.

...

so we've got that going on.

...

we have got the potatoes are looking nice and cook beautifully along

...

the eggs. There is the sasha sausage, which is now all

...

ground up in the pan and our black beans, of course,

...

you want me to roll it if that come one of those circular shelf?

...

i'm try. Okay. So we're gonna test test

...

are First.

...

before we we decided to go all in with the

...

with the homemade for for for our breakfast this morning.

...

Oh there's little bubbles happening in our coachella shell.

...

Okay. So so so the

...

the decision here is that it's cooked enough.

...

And I think we're gonna do a little bit of taste testing before we

...

So with that actually designed ...someone has got this little

...

orange thing here.

...

that she's just stuck hard through till she, and actually fits perfect.

...

it's so clearly the the size that she sort of decided on

...

that Was perfect. And that is indeed for ...and that's keep more.

...

Oh, wow. Okay. So I learned a new thing about the new kitchen gadget here, which

...

brand new to me.

...

and

...

how so is that just

...

this is there a period of time that it fits in there or

...

Okay. So let's gonna take over the audio, and I'm gonna turn myself on

...

So that tortilla is pretty haunted to the touch, and I've actually seen some means that are like

...

it's making fun of people who can't. Like, you have to use a utensils to flip it because

...

like, people would be flipping it with their bare hands on the hot grill,

...

so whatever because they've done it so much. Right? But the torture

...

see warmer is just this little

...

sometimes you see them when you're out in a restaurant and get, like, heat does or something, Like, they bring

...

out your tortilla is like this. Obviously, you don't need a fancy plastic

...

is probably plastic gadget,

...

but you can also use just like a paper towel or

...

towels or paper towels just to wrap them in. But the whole purpose is yeah. It keeps it warm, and you can feel

...

he radiating

...

Erica just felt it. And,, you know, it keeps it to where they don't dry out.

...

And so what you could do also is have a a slightly

...

It's not ...I guess damp.

...

cloth in there, to just give it a little more more moisture.

...

but it was pretty hot to touch. I didn't wanted to dry out and

...

get Erica to touch this. It does feel little

...

drawing the edges, like maybe we overcooked it,

...

but I say we tasted to at least see that tastes like

...

but I feel like, you know,

...

the recipe for these Tortilla said, you know, thirty seconds, forty five seconds each

...

size, but you want some browning

...

and they just weren't browning. So

...

maybe they dry it out with too much heat.

...

or maybe, you know, our oil is not doing the job that

...

lord

...

would do or even like, a non large vegetable, like

...

crystal type product. So I don't know

...

that's pretty It's pretty, like crunchy.

...

I don't know if I would put

...

I don't like, it tastes okay, but it's just

...

it's the complete wrong consistency, Erica,

...

is taken little buys trying to make up her wise too, but I just don't think it's softer enough.

...

interesting I

...

I'm

...

I actually quite like it, but what I like about is is I don't have that

...

hey.

...

that you get when you're

...

you know, from the store about ones, they have this

...

taste here that you

...

And I I'm I'm constantly trying to find ones that don't have that

...

same sort of magic manufacturer taste to them. Yeah. It

...

and you're right. Like, definitely sort bot tortilla is now have the shelf why I felt like

...

two months. But they've put so many preserved in it,

...

And that's the hard part is like, do we go today with our

...

go to unquote more authentic, at least they are homemade.

...

Tortilla is or do we decide, like, we have

...

corn tortilla here. I have some yellow corn and wheat.

...

locked tortilla factory. I got

...

two big burrito sized

...

flower Tortilla is from farm boy.

...

so we are very circular in our house about

...

where we buy our tortilla and

...

you know, my husband picked up some president's choice, corn Tortilla is, like,

...

they're just not that good. I mean, they smell good. There's they're

...

still really soft.

...

go in July twelve best before day, like,

...

I don't know. They're they're

...

just not that good.

...

And this is my problem. And

...

is kind of

...

Canadian to

...

don't get the real thing all that often.

...

It's finding

...

where do I apply?, like, what do I buy here?

...

That's my

...

be even bit more authentic. Yeah. And it

...

it's a good question because I I feel like there are a few

...

there are a few Taco restaurants

...

in Toronto, when ...and I haven't lived there in four years, but

...

there was one that had opened up

...

kind of like better

...

done area near Kensington,

...

and they were making fresh every day in selling them. So you could go in

...

get your tacos but also say, you know, I wanna a dozen

...

Tortilla is, obviously, it's they're fresh me at the restaurant. That's the best bet.

...

But

...

I found

...

it was really hard just find those things, and then

...

the fresh ones just don't last as long as they do like those preserved them. So

...

better use that day

...

or even maybe the next. But, yeah, we're looking at these ingredients on these horses, and

...

even the farm boy ones are like,

...

there's, like, twenty different things. And, yeah, you get into

...

they've used palm oil, which is horrible market acid. Don't know that is.

...

It

...

potassium survey ...like, once you start giving into all of those multi so

...

preservatives words. It's like, do you really wanna eat this or not? But

...

I mean, I don't really have

...

many options yeah though. So it is statistics

...

I actually did find

...

a mexican

...

sort of cookie stand at the farmers market.

...

in West

...

that's a neighborhood hamilton.

...

a week ago.

...

and I

...

bought some of the most incredible tasting

...

tortilla chips from from them, which I know.

...

are all in my belly.

...

But it it it really is amazing

...

difference. And that that's one of the faces that they were talk

...

what that this when i bought is the shelf plate on those.

...

is much shorter.

...

you you you need to eat some faster because they don't put all the preserve in them.

...

which is

...

good.

...

Yeah. It's a good thing. So do we wanna roll these out?

...

It's

...

you're the

...

you're the expert here. So you tell me what you would like.

...

I feel like if you like these, i'm gonna

...

we're gonna wrap these up for you.

...

You can take them home to do your own tortilla. I'm not

...

a big fan, and I feel like it will degrade

...

the colony in the of our tacos, but, obviously, we can cook some up for you. I'll just use different, but

...

We do have all this

...

warm food on the stove that we need to pop into

...

into those delivery devices.

...

Yes. So why don't we go with the way you'd like it? Okay. As I said,

...

If you're not gonna eat those

...

I will have take them and make them at home. Okay. Let's do it. Can I pass the mic?

...

to you to you? Yeah.

...

Right.

...

pass mic to Erica, so I can keep these short

...

So if while we're just

...

cooking everything up here in the the kitchen tin.

...

If there ...is there anybody you'd like to come up

...

to the stage. I know we've got some new people on the show that have joined us.

...

as we ...I un foot out from your name right,.

...

who would like to come up and share any of their experiences

...

from

...

from visiting Austin listening Texas,

...

your your desires when it comes to text cuisine,

...

or

...

if you

...

Sorry. I'm munch away now.

...

as I've got a Shell in my hands or tortilla.

...

sell my hands and

...

I've got this

...

great self certain from me.

...

So even if you have any cooking tips around this stuff or your own version of a way of doing this

...

or even

...

some advice somewhere it gets good

...

good sort of store box share

...

chia shells here and

...

Canada or in the Us or wherever you are in the world.

...

We'd love to hear from you. So

...

Earl,

...

do what. I've been doing all long on by

...

everybody up to the stage, and you can accept or not accept

...

depending on what you feel like.

...

that you're are welcome if you do have something you wanna add in,

...

And I'm getting really excited for the

...

eating portion of the show here momentarily,

...

Oh,

...

So we've got Randall back on the stage.

...

So, Randall feel free to unmute yourself and

...

and join us in the conversation.

...

I just discussed the invite. I don't know why I about

...

stage, but it was just listening because I am at work, but I do appreciate what you

...

ladies are doing there.

...

And like i said,

...

if we could find a way to share the food, I would definitely

...

like to try it.

...

I my most have been watering on morning since i

...

started listening to you lady, put this together.

...

So when I'm done work today, i'm we're gonna have to go back to the kitchen and

...

start cooking something up, maybe not as good as yours but the Second try.

...

Well, it's ...I I I think, you know, anytime you make

...

things like yourself in the kitchen is always fantastic because

...

I don't know. They're talking

...

Just really wonderful about

...

Well, I I think sure. I just wanna say that

...

the more you cook at home with ingredients,

...

you know what's going into the food?

...

you could do enjoy the flavors as it's cooking.

...

rather than going out and having served you

...

on a table where you have no

...

i what's in it.

...

and

...

haven't enjoyed the process. So

...

I say making food at home is excellent.

...

we should do it more often.

...

to bring families together,

...

and couple and second to share time together while they're preparing it.

...

I know cleanup is sometimes messy. I've made meals where

...

didn't look a ...like, a lot, but when you look the dish

...

in the kitchen news where of God, You entertain twenty people.

...

but again, it was delicious, and I would do it over again. So

...

take you for hosting this room today. Thank you for sharing everything.

...

and

...

yeah. And I'm looking forward to here next one.

...

Oh, well, thanks, randall. Thank you for

...

being such a wonderful participant here on the stage throughout throughout the show.

...

And and thanks to everybody who's been sticking with us in the audience because

...

And always been doing kind of like the extra long version of the show today.

...

which is

...

You well ...I mean, it's because we're enjoying

...

and talking. And

...

when we share the recipe online, I'll do a little bit of editing so that it's

...

A shorter version of the the podcast that we

...

that we share over for the broader world, But

...

As I said, you know, we'll be sharing this recipe out there phil. If you you wanna

...

try Melissa's

...

Austin style, often, Texas style of breakfast,

...

some tacos you will be able to

...

because we'll we'll we'll share the recipe of what we've done here today.

...

One of the things I thought I'd share is as melissa,

...

was preparing the store bought

...

corn churchill,

...

This was really interesting for me because I didn't know that this is

...

one of the things that you could do

...

she actually put them right down on the heat.

...

on her her gas,

...

Stove top grill, not in the pan, and and

...

and grilled in away like that. I'll share a picture later on the blog of how she's

...

done that.

...

but that they looked ...they look fantastic.

...

and she's just just waiting a reading out.

...

Yes. I would love. But she's asking if if if she can make mine and I'm saying, yes,

...

please just because, you know,

...

I I love for

...

you know, it to be played in the way that

...

that they would in Austin access. So

...

Yeah.

...

This is

...

what was i gonna say? The

...

you know, part of the magic, I think too when it comes

...

to to creating and eating all of this

...

at home in in your own kitchen is

...

helps to bring kind of new understanding

...

to to different cultures around the world and and the process that goes into

...

food making. And so what Melissa is doing right now,

...

is she's ultimately creating two versions of this.

...

one five of the titular has

...

has the potatoes and

...

the decree Madonna, and then the other side has

...

eggs and black beams on them. And so I'm gonna take a picture here.

...

so that you can ...when you go to make these

...

up in your own kitchens,

...

you see what ours look like.

...

And then I know that

...

one of the things that

...

Melissa has big on and that she says is an important part of the Austin, Texas

...

style

...

talk Breakfast Taco is is the toppings Is that correct?

...

So if she's saying yes, right now, she is

...

putting on a healthy

...

dollar of the the green jalapeno you know, salsa.

...

And she's putting that specifically on

...

the side of the

...

Taco,

...

that has

...

has the eggs and the black bean. And then on the sides that has the

...

potatoes and the career though. She putting

...

the

...

healthy dose of our of our

...

our red tomato, roasted red tomato sausage. Are

...

now over top of everything, we're getting some

...

fresh green onions.

...

Sorry about my king. I'm still marching away at my homemade.

...

Churchill shelf.

...

I'm kind of excited that not that we've made a homemade through.

...

so

...

cue thing that we are done. Is that right? Okay.

...

I'm gonna pass over the mic to her for a second, and

...

we'll have we'll enjoy our first bite with all of you, and so then we will

...

did you joke because I'm sure ...well, we're just really appreciative that you hung in

...

here with us for for

...

for our sort of extended extended version of the show today.

...

So

...

So, yeah, this is

...

probably the world's longest

...

two hour, you know, breakfast Taco making, because really, you know,

...

we were just throwing this together, but we're so glad that you guys have joined us and

...

been listening the time and have enjoyed it as well. So

...

we've got our talk as ready to e.

...

five meet Erica the Chorizo potato with Red salsa.

...

and an egg

...

potato black bean,

...

with the jalapeno salsa that

...

because I don't really like eggs.

...

I'm weird. Don't do eggs for breakfast.

...

like the other ways. So she's gonna try those in mine are just the same.

...

except no eggs. So

...

wanna

...

we're gonna dig in

...

you're probably gonna hear me much, but, you know, people pick up tortilla in different ways.

...

Yeah. My

...

with

...

typically picking up

...

Tortilla is to end up with all of that falling out.

...

Oh, yeah.

...

So these sorts we're using right now are actually like a flower

...

corn mix, which is not typical, but

...

I find that they have a slight corn flavor I like, and they don't really fall

...

part unless you have

...

something really wet like fish.

...

And I'm sorry. I'm like, eating also talking.

...

So I'm gonna I'm gonna mean myself reduced like it.

...

What do you think? Here them? I'm loving it. And I have

...

saying that I like the court circular wow.

...

I always smell that corn

...

flavor, and

...

I find some of of stuff that bothers me about the store bought or killer.

...

around there. I don't taste it the same way in the corner

...

building stories. So that affects you what I've started to do.

...

And this would be a little bit more like what we have in Mexico.

...

point to live that correct.

...

Oh, definitely. I I mean,

...

I'm

...

I didn't live there very long and I do know a lot of Mexican people, and I

...

flower Tortilla is are a thing there, but I think that

...

the traditional

...

Tortilla is definitely corn in moss base because

...

you know, all of their agricultural society

...

and cultural societies based on

...

corn is a staple food. Right? So

...

It's it's

...

it's delicious.

...

it is. I'm loving this right now.

...

I wish we could be sharing all of you, but

...

course.

...

Now on no

...
