Recently I spent 5 days in Cali, Colombia for a mini-food tour and to do some food demos as part of this massive fitness expo called FeriaFit. While I was there I got to eat in one of my favorites restaurants, Pica, by a chef I’ve been following for about a year now – Chef Alex
If you’re a fan of Hasselback potatoes like me, then you’ll love this hack! In many traditional “bar food” versions, Hasselback potatoes are made by wedging pieces of butter in between the individual slices and then baking it.
