Ellie Markovitch is a photojournalist, Brazilian chef, and author of Story Cooking, an exploration of the role of food in our lives and its impact on our society. She shares her recipe for Frango no Açafrão, a turmeric chicken dish her mother made for her when she was a child.
I grew up with this quick recipe my mom would make for us–it takes some patience to turn the chicken so it won’t burn, but the result is delicious firm chicken pieces.
