Here's just a taste of our travels so far: Pickled herring with potatoes.It's quite a transition going from the firey, spiced cuisine of the West Indian communities in Crown Heights to the heavy, garlicky food of Brighton Beach. But it's so very cool to get to see what's "hiding" right under our noses (and mouths) here in wonderful neighborhoods in New York. Also, one quick note: If you're interested in following me around when I'm doing research for this website, you can follow me on Twitter. I post pictures of food and thoughts on the neighborhoods while I'm wandering around. Anything related to MouthOfTheBorder.com on Twitter appears in my feed with the hashtag #MOTB - you can also comment back to me and recommend places for me to check out with that hashtag.

Something Fishy…in Brighton Beach.
Hello, dear readers. Upload speeds have been crazy-inducing amounts of slow at my home as of late, which prevents me from uploading videos and photos that are necessary to complete the next few posts. I have to take Mouth of the Border to a coffee shop with a stable connection this week to get this party started again. I'm hoping you'll continue to be patient with me because, not only do I have some amazing Jamaican recipes to share with you, my cooking partner for those posts has a few things to add, too. Behind the scenes, I've started research for the September posts on the next neighborhood we'll be exploring together. Brighton Beach, located right next to Coney Island in Brooklyn, is home to a large Russian and eastern European community nicknamed Little Odessa.
