Back in the Pines

With all the headless deer.  I wanted to take this picture of Bambi and Mom but they got suddenly shy…still the doe is so beautiful.

Last night I made a delicious (if I do say so myself) Mexican Pulled Chicken Stew with Chipolte peppers, fresh Pineapple and potatoes all bathing in a spicy tomato broth.

The original recipe calls for chicken stock which I didn’t have so used water and little more salt and pepper instead to great effect.  I also added more lime juice.  It was served with fresh local corn on the cob the only thing missing was good bread so soak up all that wonderful broth.

Straight forward and fairly quick to prepare this would for sure be a great dish as left over (maybe even over a bun!).

I will take a picture and post it in a bit. Coming up:  Pulled Pork, Roast Duck and Frisse Salad with Lardon and poached eggs….

About urbanfoodguy

I'm a self taught cook with a dedication to buying and eating food that is as humanely and sustainably raised as possible. Which is why in addition to recipes you will see a lot of environmental/political reporting here. I started cooking when I was about 6, it's something I always loved to do. Watching Graham Kerr - aka "The Galloping Gourmet" - was what got me started and I have never really looked back. Over the years I've been a private chef, a caterer, and a food stylist for magazines such as Bon Appétit, Food & Wine, Real Simple, Oprah, Martha Stewart's Everyday Food and many more. I've also worked in the prep kitchen for the Food Network on the Bobby Flay and Paula Deen shows. Now I work at home in my kitchen sharing with you here recipes that I create or that other people have created that inspire me and I think you will like. I love my neighborhood (the Lower East Side of Manhattan) and I love to travel. Because NYC is such a big place I tend to focus mostly on my 'hood and the ones that are close by: The East Village, Bowery, Chinatown and Williamsburg. My love of travel has no limits really, I'm always ready to get on a plane. I was lucky enough to have a business for many years that allowed me to spend a lot of time in South East Asia. These days I've been spending time in Mexico, Germany, Canada and the West Coast of the U.S., but check back you never know where I might end up. I do consulting, cooking classes, and freelance lifestyle writing so if you are interested please send me a note:
