Legal Nomads | Telling Stories Through Food Congee as Comfort Food | The Asian Grandmothers Cookbook Can you spot Isaac's mop of black hair looming at the top right corner in the first photo? "I ... must ... touch ... congee ..." The last few weeks have been exhausting. I’ve been sick twice in three weeks (once with a gastro-intestinal virus and am now recovering with maybe strep and/or a sinus infection), and my two illnesses bookended my little man’s bout with a stomach virus (yet again). Ever since Isaac started daycare in August, it’s been a neverending series of maladies at our house. So please forgive me for not posting until now. Thankfully, I’m well-prepared when it comes to feeding the sick, whether my son, husband, or myself. Just like chicken (noodle) soup is nature’s universal penicillin, congee is the Asian equivalent, a comforting bowl of goodness to nurse your ailing loved one back to health.

Páscoa Páscoa - Festa comemorativa da Ressurreição de Jesus Cristo, a Páscoa está associada a práticas alimentares em que os ovos, os folares, as amêndoas e os cordeiros ocupam o primeiro lugar. O "Folar" tem particular relevância, havendo diferentes espécies - tão diferentes que o folar transmontano, por exemplo, só tem com o da Estremadura dois pontos em comum: o nome e a referência à Páscoa. Acrescente-se, contudo, que a tradição do folar, qualquer que ele seja, assenta num ritual de dádiva, solidariedade e convívio profundamente enraizado na sociedade portuguesa. O folar mais corrente em Portugal é um "bolo de massa seca, doce, e ligada, feito com farinha de trigo, ovos, leite, azeite, banha ou pingue, açúcar e fermento, e condimentado com canela e erva-doce - uma espécie de fogaça - encimado, conforme o seu tamanho, por um ou vários ovos cozidos inteiros e em certos lugares tingidos, meio incrustados e visíveis sob as tiras de massa que os recobrem".
