Support the independent voice of Miami and help keep the future of New Times free.

Recipes passed down from generation to generation are special.  That they stand the test of time is reason alone to love them -- a generous helping of the past on a plate or in a casserole dish. 

Newly born dishes, shaped by chefs forging brave trails in restaurant kitchens, are important too.  Perhaps sometimes inspired by the past.  But these... Well, they've earned their keep.

In a community like ours, with a root system cupping the globe, there lies a treasure trove of such gems, recreated day and night in homes across the Magic City. Here's one I recently uncovered for spaetzel, a free form noodle dish from Czechoslovakia, on my Kitchen Interviews blog.

Keep Miami New Times Free... Since we started Miami New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Miami, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Miami with no paywalls.
