About the Author: Dr. Allyn Cano Alwa’s food experimentation history began early as she watched and assisted her “Cajun” grandmother prepare the daily meals from a wide array of ingredients, uncommon to most households. Her parents opened and operated one of the first full service Mexican restaurants in the United States and went on to create a well known national chain, El Torito. Dr. Alwa apprenticed by assisting her mother research and develop recipes, menus and artistic food presentations for El Torito.
When she married into a south Indian family, she continued her tradition of watching and assisting in the kitchen, and began to appreciate the intricacies and delicacies of southern Indian cooking.
She developed a love and fascination with natural and ethnic foods – a fascination which persists to this day. She professes a common essential ingredient to all fine cuisine – love. Dr. Alwa believes the discerning factor for an exquisite dish and a superior preparer is the love and awareness put into the selection and preparation of the ingredients, as well as the emotional and healing gift it is to those for which it was prepared.
The green horseradish (wasabi) is a digestant and, being from the family of cruciferae, boasts anti-cancer function. Sesame seeds and their oil are extremely high in calcium and phosphorus. They contain eleven essential amino acids. Tryptophan (major depression combatant) is one of them. Enjoy!
