I live in Los Angeles, one of the largest food meccas in the world.  LA is a melting pot of flavors and is known for an endless combination of fusions. I love that I can hop in my car and reach any type of cuisine within a few minutes. These experiences have carved out a little niche in my culinary heart and help inspire my own home-cooked fusion cuisine.  My most treasured Asian-Latin fusion dishes I make is Soy Chorizo Fried Rice.

Best Dark Sweet Cherry Pie: Perfect for ANY occasion.

This is a true story. My aunt Hope is the lead singer of a band named Mazzy Star. Recently she and her band were playing a few nights here in Los Angeles, and then on to Mexico City. I was really excited about the gigs and wanted to find a way to celebrate the concerts through food. I kicked a few ideas around in my mind before settling on The Best Dark Sweet Cherry Pie. This isn’t a name I thought of but I’ll get to that later in the story.

It’s the first time because I’ve never seen them anywhere else in my time on earth. I was sitting home getting ready for the football game and wanted a batch of mozzarella sticks, but then thought it boring. “The same ol cheese sticks again?” is exactly what ran through my mind. Instead I jumped into action and paired my beloved manchego cheese with quince fruit paste, a flavor combination typically intertwined in Spain. Quince fruit paste goes by the Spanish name Membrillo, and is becoming very easy to find in bigger supermarkets and Mexican boutique markets.
