By Chef Joey (pictured above!)
Late summer can be a fun time of your – besides the launch of the back to school campaigns – thee is still plenty to do and enjoy the warm weather.  Take the Spanish American Latino Festival that hit Worcester the 16th of August – a fun day had by all!
Spanish food can be quite tasty too – Oh sure there are staples like Pasta is to Italians what Rice is to Asians, and Spanish foods include alot of Beans and savory items and best of all Cilantro! This time of year yields great toatoes, diced up with Red Onion and Cilantro you have an intsant Salsa – add a squeeze of Lime and some fresh corn off the cob for an instant healthy snack.
Another spanish favorite in the Tortilla – not a flat wrap but a savory egg and potato pie that is great for breakfast or lunch and perfectly delicious hot or cold.
