Kimchi Grilled Cheese (with Hot Borscht)

It is really astonishing how often I eat kimchi grilled cheese with hot borscht in the winter. It is comforting, filling and deeply nourishing. The kimchi grilled cheese is fatty and salty. The borscht is tangy and a bit sweet. It’s just a perfect combo.

Puttanesca

Next up in the project of posting simple things that I cook often, is my version of Puttanesca Sauce. Puttanesca sauce is a tomato sauce for pasta flavored with whatever umami bombs you might have in your pantry. So, traditionally that would be anchovies, capers, olives, garlic and chilis. I do not keep olives on hand, so my version does not have olives. My version has fish sauce becasue I make a lot of Asian food.
