(from downstairs)

Former President Donald Trump offered his public support to those accused of joining the January 6 riot at the Capitol, claiming that suspects are “being persecuted* so unfairly.”
He added: “In addition to everything else, it has proven conclusively that we are a two-tiered system of justice.”

*then again maybe he spelled ‘prosecuted’ wrong
i mean whoever is persecuted fairly?

Don’t know where you’re from, but down here in Texas, when I get real Mexican, the tacos generally have meat, optionally with cheese, cilantro, and onion. Tex-Mex tacos, on the other hand, have what you describe.

The best tacos I ever had were steak tacos at an authentic Mexican restaurant, by which I mean, a restaurant that was actually IN MEXICO. It’s been 20 years and I can still remember how good those things tasted.

Yes!

A lady a I used to date hated cilantro. We both agreed that brown mammorated stinkbugs had hints of cilantro in their spray. But she viscerally detested their smell because of that.

I like cilantro and the hints of cilantro smell in the stinkbugs is the only redeeming feature of their smell to me.

We both concluded that this was based in genetics.

I did a rack of ribs in the oven while I slapped ears of corn on the grill. It turned out very nice, but no cilantro. The last time I ordered tacos from a local upscale place that does Mexican food with smoked meat, it came with exactly what was described: Meat, chopped onions, chopped cilantro, corn tortillas.

Man, you’re really making me miss Mexican food right now. xD
Almost impossible to find any restaurant even remotely Mexican in this corner of the world. There’s really only two in the whole country that I know of (and I’ve looked), and they’re closer to local takes on Mexican food (not quite the same thing).
No cilantro to be found in either of them, which is ironic since “koosbara”, as it’s known here, is found just about everywhere and in a gazillion recipes.

As someone from San Diego watching people from the rest of the US discuss what is “good” Mexican food or what is or isn’t a Taco…

I don’t know whether I should be horrified or laughing my ass off.

The Ghost of a Flea  Sep 16, 2021 • 3:29:02pm

As a seasoning nerd, I find it interesting that there are a bunch of plants worldwide adopted independently of one another that have the compounds that make cilantro taste like it does. Sawtooth coriander in the New World, Rau ram in Southeast Asia both having that same core taste but more intense, and then whole clump of cilantro-adjacent herbs used in the same “strewed raw across food” manner that have similar notes.

On one hand…humans clearly really like this taste…but on the other I wonder if those other herbs also trigger the cilantro gene.

After years of just reading about it I’ve finally gotten to play with epazote, which is like cilantro except gasoline instead of soap.

I can’t explain why it works but wow does it work—especially as a dried addition to bean cooking—and I think it’s a really interesting comparison to part of what cilantro does—herbal funk that isolated smells of something not-food associated, but when just a part of large mix of scents and flavors it adds complexity and depth.

It’s the other half of cilantro contrasted with something like parsley, where the bright green flavor makes things taste sharp and vegetal.

My husband used to cook beans regularly, and started adding epazote for the reputed anti-flatulence effect. I couldn’t taste it. I never fart…

My smeller and my taster don’t work since my head injury (except they respond to chocolate…). But his bean-making predates that.

So they say France is pissed about the UK/US to Australia nuclear sub deal. Thing is? Years late and way the hell over budget. As a capper it turns out Australia will be getting Tomahawk and JASSM-ER cruise missiles. The latter are stealthy, very hard to see, and hit.

LOL maybe France should talk to China about being pissed.

My dad hates coriander, but loves licorice. I like ‘em both. Genetics is maybe not the best explanation.

cilantro is definitely genetic (has actually been proven to be so).
one either likes it or it tastes like soap.

re: #43 The Ghost of a Flea

As a seasoning nerd, I find it interesting that there are a bunch of plants worldwide adopted independently of one another that have the compounds that make cilantro taste like it does. Sawtooth coriander in the New World, Rau ram in Southeast Asia both having that same core taste but more intense, and then whole clump of cilantro-adjacent herbs used in the same “strewed raw across food” manner that have similar notes.

On one hand…humans clearly really like this taste…but on the other I wonder if those other herbs also trigger the cilantro gene.

There is a receptor gene that is linked to the ability to detect what are called aldehydes, chemical compounds that are found in soap and thought to be a major component of cilantro aroma.
OR26A is the genetic SNP (single nucleotide polymorphisms) that makes cilantro taste like soap. Same SNP is found in coriander.

scuse…. I’d lay odds El Paso has their share of excellent Mexican food…

There’s as many styles of cooking in Mexico as there are States in the Country.
Have you ever had huitlacoche?

foodrepublic.com

It is absolutely delicious despite looking liking death on the cob, and is harvested in the mountains of south Central Mexico. The Aztecs loved it.

Have you had Cochinita Pibil, a Yucatan BBQ cooked inside a palm leaf and served with black beans, white rice, and pink, finely sliced pickled onions, and any number of salsas.

Or food from Veracruz? A friend of mine from Mumbai who vacationed as a kid in Goa, had the Verecuzano Shrimp at a local restaurant in the ‘hood called Polvos. He just looked up and said “This is Goan, and it’s great!”

Or food from Acapulco, Guadalajara, the D.F., or Saltillo (grilled Cabrito!)?

It’s all different and it’s all delicious and you can go to a different restaurant for lunch and dinner every day for a week and not even get *close* to hitting all the cuisines in Mexico.

And I haven’t even mentioned Taco Trucks, Central and South American cuisines, different styles flavors of BBQ and Ceviches from all over.

TexMex and CalMex is okay, but it really is the Chef Boy-Ar-Dee of Mexican food.

Dangerman  Sep 16, 2021 • 4:24:38pm

Two randos

The only serious candidate on the replacement ballot, former San DIego mayor Kevin Faulconer, earned just 8.6% of the “replacement candidate” votes, while a carnival-barking talk-radio host buffoon earned 46.9% (ironically, the same % as trump earned last November). This indicates that the GOP is still full-steam ahead on the craziness & insanity, with little chance of turning back soon.

Almost one-half of California voters (nearly 45% !) left question 2 blank or wrote in a candidate not on the ballot.

And

Newsom not only highlighted the contrast with Larry Elder and tied him to Trump, but he also contrasted with Abbott and DeSantis on pandemic response and reproductive rights. That gives Democrats elsewhere, like McAuliffe in VA, a very good strategy to work with.

The entire party fits the Trumpian narrative/stereo type, except for a few like Baker in MA, Scott in VT, and Hogan in MD, and on occasion Reps Kinzinger/Cheney and Sen Romney. But none of them are influential to shape the midterms beyond their narrow circles.

As someone from San Diego watching people from the rest of the US discuss what is “good” Mexican food or what is or isn’t a Taco…

I don’t know whether I should be horrified or laughing my ass off.

Outside of Mexico, there’s no good Mexican Food north of Oceanside, CA or East of El Centro, CA other than certain parts of Los Angeles and even that is hit-and-miss.

Why do you think I want immigrants? We have good places here, they’re just hard to get to because DFW is huge and that gap of white people between San Antonio and Dallas slows the migration. There’s also the fact that the Mexican restaurants are competing against the Indian, German, Greek, and other restaurants run by immigrants.

Hey, Chef Ettore (Hector) Boyardi was probably one of the most famous people who helped to make Italian food American food in the interwar period, but especially post-WWII; there’s a life-size statue of him outside the factory he built in 1938 in Milton, PA (and that, now owned by ConAgra, still makes Chef Boy-Ar-Dee products).

Boyardi is still so much of an Italian-American hero to some, there’s been a push to replace the statue of Christopher Columbus in Cleveland’s Little Italy with a version of the Boyardi statue in Milton (of which, there’s also another at ConAgra’s HQ in Omaha); Cleveland was Boyardi’s adopted hometown and he lived there from 1926 to his death in 1985.

Oh, and everyone one of these cuisines, from Argentina to Brazil, from the Andes to Central America, and through Mexico to the Border lands, Austin has multiple iterations of all of these Western Hemisphere’s styles. Austin is a notorious foodie town, and in the past 5 years, we have really filled in the Asian/African gaps that used to be here.

Africa has been the toughest. We’ve got “Mediterranean” eats and groceries, but I would love to see more strictly North African styles. We’ve got a bunch of Sudanese, Kenyan, and Somali stores, representing those styles, and a couple of Nigerian joints, but I would love to see more joints from Cote d’Ivoire, Gabon, and Congolese cuisines.

Someone above mentioned polzole which reminded me about this factoid I heard in a lecture about Mexican cuisine:

Pozole was mentioned in the 16th century Florentine Codex by Bernardino de Sahagún. Since maize was a sacred plant for the Aztecs and other inhabitants of Mesoamerica, pozole was made to be consumed on special occasions.

According to research by the Instituto Nacional de Antropología e Historia (National Institute of Anthropology and History) and the Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México, on these special occasions, the meat used in the pozole was human. After the prisoners were killed by having their hearts torn out in a ritual sacrifice, the rest of the body was chopped and cooked with maize, and the resulting meal was shared among the whole community as an act of religious communion. After the Conquest, when cannibalism was banned, pork became the staple meat as it “tasted very similar” [to human flesh], according to Bernardino de Sahagún.
