Food Porn IV

More food porn! This week was Mexico, Central America, South America, and the Caribbean. I only have pictures from the day we did Mexico, the Caribbean and my practical today because apparently this week's theme was forget to take pictures. Yay for themes! 

 Mexican Rice. Weird, weird Mexican rice. The recipe had you cook down a bunch of stuff and puree it, then add it to the rice. Everyone else loved it, I thought it was a little mushy.
 Chicken Enchiladas. I mean, you can't go wrong here. Yummers. AND I finally found an enchilada sauce I like that doesn't taste like cumin with a hint of tomato. I dislike cumin.
 Prawn curry. Have you noticed I make a lot of curry? Can't wait until we get to India. I will probably die like that dude in the beginning of Seven. I feel like death by curry is totally the way to go.
 Our practical was different this week because we had a different chef. We were required to do an amuse bouche, a deconstructed entree, and an appetizer. This was my amuse bouche, it was grilled chicken on a chip with salsa, sour cream, and piquillo peppers.
 Another angle.
 Deconstructed chicken enchiladas served over cilantro lime rice.
 Another angle.
Grilled shrimp (I didn't soak my skewers long enough. Sad face.) with roasted tomatillo salsa.

When I'm in St. Louis this June, I hope like hell that you come to town and you and Bradshaw and I can get together and you can cook for us. :)
