Burritos, Middle Eastern style

This recipe is essentially a build-your-own burrito dinner except that it relies on Middle Eastern rather than Mexican ingredients. It's a crowd-pleaser, even if I do say so myself, because everyone is free to choose his or her own fillings. Admittedly, the number of parts in this recipe might make it appear rather time-consuming, but all the elements together form a complete meal. In fact, the prep is easy, and most of the components can be made in advance. Nothing to do then but spread out all the prepared dishes on the table and invite your guests to customize.

Frozen gold

So I was watching this BBC show, “Torchwood.” It’s a “Doctor Who” spin-off starring John Barrowman, a charming Scottish-American singer/actor/author Renaissance man.

How to make tramezzini, the Italian sandwiches you can’t get here

A midmorning snack along the street, off the Rialto Bridge in Venice. Soft slices of crust-less white bread stuffed with a mountain of chopped seafood – shrimp, squid, other lovelies of the sea, probably pulled from the giant market just up the calle – in a dressing, probably maionese, generous with chile heat. Somehow managing not to slop it all onto myself. Eaten standing up in the street as tourists and Venetians, both, bustle about.
