Bronx Eats: Jamaican Patties and Sweets at Royal Caribbean Bakery

New York Chris E. Crowley 5 comments

Flatbush might be the destination du jour for Jamaican food in New York, but Bronxites know that there's a tasty patty or two to be had in Edenwald and Wakefield.

Serious Heat: My Love for Mojo Sauce

Serious Eats Andrea Lynn 8 comments

My first introduction into the wonder of mojo sauce was one of the early seasons of Top Chef, where a contestant (the always entertaining, Howie from the Miami season) braised pork shoulder in a mojo sauce to rave reviews. But that's only the beginning of mojo, which I've discovered since then has many uses and variations.
