My Paleo Take on Tandoori Fish Tikka

Fish in tandoori spices with a spring salad and onions

With a title like “The Hamilton Cookbook” it would be fair to assume that this book is about Alexander Hamilton and the cooking, eating and entertaining during that time. The book in fact is partly about Hamilton, his life before he moved to America, his life during the revolutionary war era and his political and private life.

Gado Gado – Indonesian Vegetable Salad

Gado Gado – Indonesian vegetable salad literally means mix mix. A mix of vegetables, tofu, bean sprouts and the quintessential peanut sauce or bumbu as it is called in the local language.
