I'm going to be my own truffle pig today and sniff out three grocery stores in Chicago : a massive Korean store, a Mexican produce, and a small Lebanese market. I'm aiming to come back with ingredients from each to write about their medicinal value. Already my mind is dancing around the possible ingredients I'll find: Mexican cactus, or nopales, wonderful chipotle chili's or a nice dark chocolate base for mole, a magnificently marbled cut of short rib from the Korean store, delectable nourishing lamb from the Lebanese market...but I'm sure I'll be surprised and I'll let you know what it ends up being. Til' then.
