"Oh no…this eggplant is bitter"
That was Ashley Kim, my dietetic intern colleague. We were preparing freshly picked eggplant from the school garden together when we discovered the bitterness of the fruit. We practiced a classic Asian-inspired technique by cutting the eggplant into bite-sized pieces and cooking it in a wok with oyster sauce, garlic, ginger, and thai chili peppers. The umami and aromatics were not strong enough to mask the bitterness of the vegetable. I definitely could not waste it so I unceremoniously ate every last bite, all the while thinking about what we did wrong.
In Colombia, as in many countries, it is common to offer a beverage to a guest visiting their home. Typically, that offering is ‘tinto’ (black coffee) or ‘aromática’ (tea). This isn’t just any prepackaged tea bag, though. Aromática is often made with fresh aromatic herbs, fresh or dried fruits, and a little sweetener if desired.
