A Spoonful of Sofrito: A Pinch of advice that will add a lot of flavor to your life.
How to Properly Eat Hotpot!
Do you know what Hot pot is? No? Okay, so hotpot is this amazing Chinese/Asian way of dining in which you go to a restaurant and cook your own meal in a boiling pot of stock on your table.
Some of you are thinking, "Why the hell am I going out to pay for and cook my own soup, when I can do that at home?" Well Sofrito Lovers, hotpot is an amazing dining experience in which you pay to have access to delicious ingredients, fresh proteins, crispy veggies, and incredible dipping sauces.
It's true, you have to cook them yourselves, but that's all part of the fun. You get to prepare your own meal, which you should share with friends, and experiment with flavors and textures.
Sure, it's a big departure from the usual being served your own meal, but it's fun, and intimate. Hotpot gets you out of your comfort zone and into some serious culinary exploration. The gourmet chef in you can't help, but come out when you start mixing proteins, veggies, and sauces together. You'll be blown away at the fantastic flavor profiles you'll create when you start getting into it!
