“Socca is a traditional dish from Nice, France, and as with many traditional dishes, there are a dozen different ways you can make it. However you make it, the recipe itself is nearly universal. It is equal parts chickpea flour and water, mixed with a tablespoon or so of olive oil and a pinch of salt. You can use more water to make a thinner crêpe-like socca or less water to make it thicker. You can also add minced herbs or a few pinches of spices to the batter for some extra pizzazz.”
“This Thai Grilled Chicken is a classic example of staying on the authentic side of the “line”. Even throughout Thailand, there are so many variations of Gai Yang.

Omit either of these, and you can’t call it ‘real’!”
