We’re so excited to continue the TASTE In Residence program, with Jenn de la Vega and Therese Nelson serving as our current residents. The program is structured like a traditional artist-in-residence program, where residents are given time, space, and resources to create art in their chosen medium; our residents will work with the TASTE editorial staff on a series of stories to be published over the next four months, April through July 2018. While editors will serve as the residents’ sounding boards—as editors do—we’ve set zero limits for Jenn and Therese. You can read more about them in our two profiles below, and follow their essays, recipes, and creative adventures.

Meet Therese Nelson

Nelson has passions that extend beyond professional cooking. She founded blackculinaryhistory.com, writing in the wee hours after long days in the kitchen not only as her own personal catharsis but also as a way to centralize all things black foodways. While writing the blog on and off over the past nine years, Nelson has curated a network of global black chefs that she calls “expansive, diverse, and dope.”

A Salad, a Condiment, a Sandwich Filling

Like sauerkraut and Indian pickle, Filipino atchara started out as a way of preserving vegetables, like green papaya, without refrigeration. Today it’s a favorite crunchy topping for pulled pork, or it can be eaten as a salad on its own.

The Kitchens of Karachi

As someone who grew up in Islamabad, went to college in Lahore, and has traveled extensively across Pakistan, a writer can say, with certainty, that Karachi is the best food city in Pakistan.
