Bittergourd is a vegetable that you either love or hate. I hate it. LOL. But everyone else in the family loves it, including the husband. So although I don’t like to eat bittergourd, I often cook with it. I can’t remember if I’ve shared my pork rib bittergourd with fermented black bean sauce recipe before, but my aunts actually said it reminds them of THEIR mom’s cooking. Wow they just propelled me to another level wtf I don’t deserve this.
Advertorial Before we know it, we’re into the last two months of 2015. And that means TWO things: HOLIDAY MOOD and FESTIVE FOOD! The months of November and December are special to my family. With six birthdays and one holiday (my 76-year-old aunt is a Christmas Eve baby!), we are constantly celebrating and eating. And as with all our birthdays and Christmas gatherings, having good food ranks right up there on our agenda – along with the mountain of presents, of course!
