"I am not one who was born in the custody of wisdom. I am one who is fond of olden times and intense in quest of the sacred knowing of the ancients." Gustave Courbet

If you wish to restore your health, take out your largest iron pot and put in two pounds of pork shoulder, Serrano and pasilla (fresh chiles), onions, cumin, lots of garlic, ground Chimayo chile, chopped cilantro, and water. Bring to heat on stove, then put in the oven at 300° F for four hours, after which you jerk the pork and remove the bones. Serve on tortilla chips or Fritos with condiments of chopped onions, cilantro, and grated cheese. Eat a lot and then nap.


Thank you, Megan and Kurt.

Isn't A Really Big Lunch wonderful? I subscribed to Brick Magazine in the late 2000's and got most of the rest of the issues in which Harrison's column appeared, but having them all in one book, along with the articles from Kermit Lynch's Newsletter, etc., is great. And I love the photos.
