Pair Cookbooks With a Little Something for the Ultimate Holiday Gift
How do you make a new cookbook into an even more thoughtful gift? Pair it with an essential—and specific—ingredient or tool.The only thing that makes that gift better in my mind is bundling the book with something specific that relates to its recipes. Sometimes this can be as simple as a hand-carved olive wood spoon, for a book filled with dishes—like curries and soups—that tend to linger a long while on the stovetop. Other times, it's a hard-to-find ingredient that a cook might skip over out of a sense of economy. Or, now and then, it's a really fantastic version of a pantry staple, like particularly fragrant cumin, or the creamiest tahini.
The food options include items like a Cuban sandwich, pernil and mofongo (pork and a plantain-based dish) from Puerto Rico, pineapple trini-chow (skewers) from Trinidad and Tobago, a jackfruit dish from The Bahamas, and more. For park-goers looking for more NOLA-inspired dishes, a crawfish boil,, and are also available.
Universal's International Flavors of Carnaval will run through March 28 at the park and guests can try 10 different items for $55. Annual ticket holders can try 15 items for $65. The park is also helping to ensure safety as much as possible by enforcing face coverings, social distancing, and requiring temperature checks upon entry.
