Papi’s Roast Pork is an old family recipe


I had lunch at the new Papi’s Cuban & Caribbean Grill at Emory Point. Everything was great, but I loved the Roast Pork served with yellow rice and maduros. Would they share the recipe? Thanks.—Jona Consentino, Braselton

The folks at Papi’s were indeed willing to share this old family recipe. They tell us it’s a classic Cuban recipe, simple but delicious. The marinade is easy, just purchased Mojo marinade with the addition of garlic, salt and black pepper. All you need is patience. Patience for the marinating. Patience for the cooking.

Mojo Criollo Marinade is available in the Hispanic section of your local grocery store.

Serve as they do it at Papi’s with yellow rice, black beans and sweet plantains. They shared the recipe for the yellow rice and black beans with our readers back in 2014.

There's a poem I love called "September Tomatoes," by the Massachusetts based poet Karina Borowicz. In it, she evokes the feeling and details of the season change, like the fruit flies that erupt from tomato plants and the compost that cooks build from what remains of summer. It closes beautifully: "My greatgrandmother sang with the...

Glycemic index

Should you care about a food's glycemic index?  Maybe, maybe not.  The glycemic index, simply put, is a measure of how quickly a food causes blood sugar levels to rise.  The measure ranks food on a scale of 0 to 100. Foods with a high glycemic index, or GI, are quickly digested and absorbed, causing a rapid rise in blood sugar. The foods...

A quick-seared fish that sizzles and satisfies

Making a fish dinner at home can be a bit of a splurge, given how expensive fresh seafood is. It would be a shame to overcook your hard-earned haul. Broiling or grilling can cause lean, white-fleshed fish like halibut (but also thick flounder fillets, snapper, grouper and large sea scallops) to dry out. For moist, juicy results, frying or searing is...

Celebrate apple season with easy cider recipes

If heirloom tomatoes in all their pink, green and purple glory are the quintessential taste of summer, then apples must surely be the flavor of fall. Crispy-sweet or pleasantly tart, the fruits of Johnny Appleseed’s labor in the early 19th century are the go-to fruit for any number of autumnal dishes; great for filling pies and adding crunch...
