Atchara and Knife Skills
Chef Armando Litiatco
Atchara! Who hasn’t heard or tasted this unique pickled side dish?
There are so many things we can pair with atchara. Barbecue, chicaron, fried chicken, fried fish ... in fact, anything fried would pair perfectly with this tangy, sweet, savory side dish.
A staple in our house, my father would always insist on having atchara at the dining room table. I have very fond memories of my dad sitting at the table with us, going through events of the day, and munching on his favorite chicharon with atchara.
For those of us who live abroad, coming across a really good bottle of atchara is rare. So we are really excited how to make this dish with Chef Litiatco -- and to learn knife skills to boot? Win!
So gather your ingredients and let’s start pickling!
