Texas Chef, Author Adán Medrano Is Cooking Tacos In Moscow, Russia

Carne Guisada Tacos To Be Served In Moscow, Russia

Texas Author and Chef, Adán Medrano Is Cooking Tacos In Moscow, Russia

HOUSTON–Texas author and chef, Adán Medrano, is traveling to Russia and will be cooking classic Texas Mexican tacos for the official 4th of July festivities at the US Ambassador’s residence in Moscow. Invited last February by the US Embassy to present Texas Mexican cuisine, Medrano enthusiastically said yes to this unique opportunity for culinary diplomacy, the chance to introduce Russians to the delights of red guajillo chiles, supple flour tortillas and of course, complex, fiery salsas.

The embassy staff, working with chef Medrano to locate the necessary equipment and ingredients, will create an actual food truck experience by parking a food truck smack on the grounds of the historic and luxurious Spaso House in Moscow, home to US Ambassadors since 1933.

Muscovites socializing at this by-invitation-only event will taste flavors that represent street food savored on many a night in Texas cities like Houston, San Antonio, Dallas, Austin and many others. Medrano has written extensively about this Texas Mexican cuisine that has ancient roots on both sides of the Rio Grande, long before it was a border. His new book on the subject is “Don’t Count The Tortillas: The Art Of Texas Mexican Cooking,” published by Texas Tech University Press.

The Moscow menu features two tacos that are traditional in Texas Mexican cooking, “Carne Guisada,” (beef) and “Puerco En Chile Colorado,” (pork), cooked by Medrano, who’ll be working with local Moscow kitchen staff. Most of the ingredients will be locally sourced from markets around Moscow, but the dried chiles and tortillas had to be shipped personally by Medrano from Houston directly to the US embassy in Moscow by diplomatic pouch.

Serving tacos from a food truck at the US Ambassador’s residence symbolizes hospitality, welcoming, and good will, says Medrano. It’s a diplomatic gesture that Medrano describes as “tortilla diplomacy.”

In this case it’s flour tortillas because they are traditional and distinctive as a staple in Texas and Northern Mexico. When they reach out to collect their flour tortilla tacos from the truck window, Russians who may be having their first ever taste of tacos, will also get two freshly made salsas, a mild red salsa of pan-roasted chiles, and a hotter green creamy salsa. Russians don’t normally eat hot foods, so Medrano is holding back on the salsa heat, while keeping all of the flavor.

The unique street food experience is about making connections, says Medrano. “Our Texas Mexican tacos are delicious, and they can help us make wonderful new friends in every part of the world.”

1.The Bahamas
The Bahamas has an excellent reputation throughout the world, yet it has not always been the most popular destination in the Caribbean.

3. Barbados
Barbados has always been one of the Exceptional Villas most popular destinations, and they see 2020 as being no exception. With new villas coming on stream daily and the launch of Nikki Beach in 2019, there is a lot that Barbados has to offer for both first-time visitors and repeat customers. The island has a vast number of events happening including the Crop Over Festival each summer and other wonderful cooking events taking place throughout the year.

4.Spain
The company has just launched its portfolio of villas in Spain with Ibiza and Mallorca seeing the biggest trends in bookings thus far. “Ibiza has a reputation for being a party island, and rightly so however there is much more to Ibiza than meets the eye,” says Linda Browne Sales and Marketing Manager at Exceptional Villas. Ibiza is equally suitable for families. San José and Santa Gertrudis are some of the most popular parts of the island to visit.

5.Greece
Greece is one of the most popular destinations for visitors from the US, Canada and Europe. The Greek islands offer some of the most breath-taking scenery imaginable, this plus the amazing Greek villages, tavernas, wonderful authentic cuisine and stunning architecture makes it an ideal Summer destination. The most popular islands to visit in Greece for 2020 are Santorini, Mykonos and Crete.

Santorini is most known for its spectacular sunsets and the endless villas and hotels lined along the breath-taking caldera all offering amazing views. Santorini is a honeymooner’s paradise and is by far one of the most romantic of the Greek Isles.

Mykonos is known as the party island with its large selection of beach clubs, beach parties and restaurants galore. However, the island is also suitable for families since it features a large selection of luxury villas with private pools and breath-taking views, many of which are also fully staffed.

Delicious Soto Pesmol

Rijstaffel Dinner at Bejana

Sambals, Various Indonesian Spicy Sauces

Delicious Balinese Satay Lilit

The key to a culture lies in its cuisine, and we encourage our guests to sample Indonesian flavor at Bejana Restaurant, and learn how to prepare their own feast in the Market to Table Cooking class.”

— Karim Tayach

NUSA DUA, BALI, INDONESIA, June 10, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Ritz-Carlton, Bali offers an exclusive ‘Market to Table’ cooking class and tour for those who wish to discover the secrets of preparing Indonesian cuisine.

Hosted by Chef Made Karyasa, who leads the team of Bejana, the resort’s signature Indonesian restaurant, the tour begins with an early morning trip to atmospheric Jimbaran Market. Here, Chef Made points out unique island ingredients and advises his guests on how to select the freshest seafood and local produce. Back at the resort, there is a quick tour of the Chef’s garden to pick fresh herbs before the cooking class begins in earnest. Taking place in the evocative Culinary Cave on the top level of Bejana restaurant, participants are treated to panoramic views over the Indian Ocean.

Chef Made, a finalist in ‘Top Chef Indonesia,’ brings vast experience and knowledge to his culinary workshops. As he explains, spices are the key to good Indonesian cooking, “If you make a good spice paste the rest naturally follows,” he says. The class commences with guests learning how to grind fresh spices, from galangal to lemongrass to coriander seed and shallots in an ulekan (mortar and pestle.) The crushed ingredients are then fried to release their fragrance and blended to create a spice paste which forms the basis of every dish. Highlights on the cooking class menu include tasty specialties such as Gado Gado – tofu and vegetables in peanut sauce, Soto Pesmol – seafood and coconut soup from Jakarta, Ayam Betutu – Balinese signature roasted chicken, and a tasty desert of Pisang Goreng – banana fritters. There is incentive to learn well as cooking class attendants will sit down to enjoy the fruits of their labor for lunch, as they dine with the chef.

“It is often said that the key to a culture lies in its cuisine, and we encourage our guests to sample the flavors of the spice islands at our signature Bejana Restaurant, and to learn how to prepare their own Indonesian feasts in the fun and informative Market to Table Cooking class,” says General Manager Karim Tayach.

Sahara Group: Inverting Narratives through Sustainable Development

The upgraded library at the Pugu Secondary School Tanzania

Administrator, United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), Achim Steiner and Executive Director, Sahara Group, Temitope Shonubi

Sahara Group’s partnership with the UN on the Sustainable Development Goals is an affirmative response to a universal call to action

Sahara is gratified to utilise its agency and partner with a cross section of stakeholders in inverting negative narratives on the state of global sustainable development now and in the future.”

— Sahara Group

LAGOS, LAGOS, NIGERIA, June 6, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — As a multinational organisation, Sahara Group’s partnership with the UN on Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) is an affirmative response to a universal call to action. It is a mandate to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure that all people enjoy peace, self-determination and prosperity.

The SDGs are globally acknowledged as a robust road map for social development. Our foundation exists to ensure that our business activities are underpinned by sustainable development actions both now and in the future. Sahara Foundation works consistently with Sahara Group to ensure that the SDGs are intrinsic to and influence the strategy for every one of our businesses.

SDGs are good for commercial operations and sustainability is important to the process design, strategy, succession planning and viability of any organisation.

Incorporating the SDGs into our businesses gives us the capacity to thrive as a sustainability driven going concern today, whilst also laying the foundations by which the engines of our success are fully functioning in the future.

Our work as a steward for sustainability with Vision of Hope in Lusaka, Zambia and Pugu Secondary School in Dar-es-Salaam, Tanzania are just two examples of how we partner to provide capacity building opportunities to some of the most vulnerable and marginalised groups in Sub-Saharan Africa.

Goals 3 (Good Health and Well Being) and 6 (Clean Water and Sanitation) are central to our work with Vision of Hope. By providing access to health care and sanitation and building an industrial size kitchen which allows for large scale cooking in sanitary conditions we are able to create an environment in which the young denizens and the adults who look after them are well fed and well nurtured.

We also partner assiduously to achieve goal 4 (Quality Education) by providing the means and a space for a formal education.

Vision of Hope has become a safe space and a social sanctuary for girls from as young as ten months to eighteen years. It enables young mothers go to school or take up an apprenticeship in arts and craft whilst their infants and toddlers are looked after during those important educational or vocational hours.

Over the years, it has become apparent that the underscoring of a successful partnership is the ability to identify gaps in social development, align with capable collaborators and deftly combining resources to fill those gaps in a manner that is timely and via sustainable means and methods.

At Pugu Secondary the foundation has been able to shift the narrative positively by working in concert with the local community on gender equality and quality education. This partnership has bridged the gender equality gap by giving female students access to restroom facilities that enable them have uninterrupted time in school thus furthering their education and improving their life chances.

Prior to installation of new toilet facilities a lot of young girls were unable to attend classes during their menstrual cycles because there were no conveniences designed to accommodate them. This lowered the attendance rates of female students whilst their male counterparts continually enjoyed the social advantages of a steady education.

The conveniences provided have significantly narrowed the gap by improving female classroom attendance across the year and levelling the playing field for these bright young girls as they grow into adolescence.

Our work as a partner on social development is effective largely because of the opportunity to work with a rich network of international multilateral agencies. As a member of the board of both local and global PSAGs (Private Sector Advisory Groups) and a strategic partnership with the office of the Deputy Secretary General of the United Nations we are able to work with NGOs, governments and the private sector to design solutions for some of the most urgent challenges to global sustainable development.

Additionally, as a steering committee member of the Partnering Against Corruption Initiative (PACI) of the World Economic Forum we are working to design corruption out of the societies and countries in which it is impeding economic growth and the creation of generational wealth. Our work with PACI has allowed us to address goals 8(Decent Work and Economic Growth) and 16 (Peace, Justice and Strong Institutions) across various borders and business interests.

The inexorable spread of globalisation has also increased awareness about the importance of preserving the planet and being accountable for our individual and collective actions as global citizens.

More will be demanded of businesses by regulators, host communities, governments and employees. Businesses which espouse corporate citizenship and predicate decisions based on a social purpose will rightly be rewarded with patronage from socially conscious consumers.

Sahara is gratified to utilise its agency and partner with a cross section of multiple stakeholders (Goal 17: Partnerships to achieve the goal) in identifying gaps, bridging them and inverting negative narratives on the state of global sustainable development now and in future.

Firefly Barbecue’s competitors included companies from 35 U.S. states and eight countries including Australia, Canada, Czech Republic, Finland, Japan, New Zealand, the United Kingdom, and the United States.

Company co-founder Noel Bateman says he is tremendously proud of Firefly’s achievements:

“We’re a small family business. And we were up against some formidable competition!”

And we make it a point to clearly list all of the ingredients we use on our labels, with absolutely nothing hidden.”
