The Spamwise Chronicles

Pernil Snapshots

Every year, B and I invite a bunch of friends over to watch the Oscars. We usually make it an event, like a dinner party gathering.

A few weeks ago, I had pernil asado for lunch at my firm’s offices in Silicon Valley. That meal was so good that I decided to learn how to replicate it at home. My first attempt was ok but didn’t really approach that level of deliciousness. Fortunately I found a recipe that works for my second attempt.

And if you take a look at the pictures, I’d say we had a smashing success.

Incidentally, the recipe for the arroz con gandules (“rice with pigeon peas”) can be found here. You’ll note that the sofrito used in the arroz recipe differs quite a bit, but the method is the same.
