It’s time to fry some of this preserved meat wrapped in banana leaf. When the meat is unwrapped, the pungent scent rise as the pale meat seems light and decadent. Many people will be tempted to eat it raw, and this is totally fine. I like to fry it, because I think the heat makes

I love coleslaw. Mmmmm, coleslaw and fried chicken, it’s one of my favorite food combo. But since we have pledged to eat clean, I make my coleslaw a little healthier.
