|The double whammy of Father’s Day and the onset of summer more or less guarantees some good times with fire. This is the season to celebrate with fun cooking and big flavor and maybe the lavishly refreshing cocktail or two you’ve been fantasizing about through the long winter months. Inspiration for that and more, below.|
|Sal de Gsano – You can tell more about people from their condiments than you can from probably anything else. Lick sal de gusano from your wrist and taste the wizened zing of hand-harvested Oaxacan sea salt, the celebratory sizzle of chile de árbol and chile puya, and the umami bravado of Oaxaca’s legendary gusano rojo and you will taste the full mirth and majesty of true Mexican cuisine. Gusanos, or chinicuil, are the larva that feed on maguey and agave plants, the famed worms you see in the bottom of a mezcal bottle. Sal de Gusano, a topping for everything from eggs to fish to corn on the cob to ceviche, is sort of a ten ton bomb version of Tabasco and BBQ sauce combined – yet utterly modest, approachable, friendly, and practical.
