Easy, crunchy and tangy sandwich for a happy Sunday evening. Swop out the bread for sturdy leaves for less carbs (not on a sunday?), increase yogourt / decrease mayo in the Tartare sauce if you prefer tangy to creamy (I do!)
In my illustration, everything is hand-drawn and handwritten. Time lapse: Roughly 6-8 hours.
This is a recipe my grandpa uses every time he drives up from Georgia to visit us! Although this stew is meant to be a fixin', it's great as a meal too!
Tteok-bokki is one of popular street food in Korea. It made up of small-sized rice cakes and soft fish cakes in a spicy-sweet chili sauce (gochujang). It reminds me of the memory of eating it as after school snack with my friends back in the days.
A stew using garbanzo beans, with African flair.
Of course, the beans can be soaked and cooked from scratch, fresh peppers can be roasted and peeled, fresh tomatoes can be peeled and chopped and spices can be freshly ground, rather than using ready-prepared ingredients if desired.
The spice quantities in this recipe produce a relatively mild flavour. For spice enthusiasts the amounts can be increased for a more punchy result.
Although I'm not Italian, I love everything that goes into the Feast of the 7 Fishes! It's an Italian-American celebration of Christmas Eve with dishes of fish and other seafood. I love seafood! I love pasta! For the past 3 Christmases my boyfriend and I have gotten conveyor belt sushi, so that's as close as I've gotten to eating fish on Christmas! Cheers everyone!
I immediately fell in love with ceviche when I traveled to Peru. Upon arriving back home, even I made the dish for my friends! They were skeptical when I served them raw fish in a bowl and they asked, "So... now we cook it?".
For this illustration, I combined a recipe illustration showcasing the freshness of the food, with a map of my journey from my sketchbook.
Global Cuisine, Feast of the Seven Fishes is an Italian-American tradition on Christmas Eve. A large meatless meal is common in Italy, but the Italian Americans gave it a theme of 7 Fishes. There are no rules on what dishes make up the seven, just lots of seafood!

Steamed Fish Cantonese Style (Mom’s Recipe)
1-2 lbs whole fish (fresh or flash-frozen)
2 stalks scallions (cut into 4-5 inches long)
2 stalks scallions (thinly sliced)
2 inches fresh ginger (peeled and sliced)
3 Tbsp soy sauce
1 Tbsp sugar
3 Tbsp vegetable oil
1) Prepare the fish. Pat dry cleaned and descaled fish. Optional and not necessary: Season fish gills with white pepper and rub outside of fish with corn starch.
2) Line a heat proof plate with scallions that were cut into 4-5 inches long. Place fish over scallions. Place ginger over fish.
3) Prepare the steamer. Use a wok or a large pot with lid. Fill pot with 1 inch of water. Place a steaming rack inside pot. Bring water to a boil.
4) Carefully place plate with fish on steaming rack and cover pot with lid. Steam fish for 10 min or until cooked through. Cooking time will vary slightly based on size and thickness of fish. Fish is done when knife cuts through easily. Add additional cooking time at 2 minute increments if necessary. Do not overcook or fish will become chewy.
5) While fish is steaming, heat up soy sauce with sugar until soy sauce is warmed and sugar melted. Set aside. Heat up vegetable oil and set aside.
6) When fish is done steaming, remove plate from pot and drain any excess water from plate. Remove ginger. Place remaining thinly sliced scallions over fish. Drizzle warmed oil over fish. Drizzle warmed sweet soy sauce along sides of fish. Serve immediately.
