Poke chef Mychael Henry repays a debt

A few weeks ago, Mychael Henry, chef of Buenos Aires pop-up restaurant Poke repaid a debt to my roommate Joanna. Joanna, the Colombian hot mama that she is was kind enough to bring Mychael back authentic Arepa masa from Colombia.  To return the favor, Mychael cooked us all roasted beer-can chicken, rice, arepas, and curry during our last dinner party.  Talia came through with a bomb salad that I got first dibs on so as to hoard as much bacon as posible.  The chicken was moist on the inside and nice and crispy on the outside.  The arepas were a solid sandwich-building base and the rice/curry/salad sides were tasty too.

For recipes and tips, you'll just have to ask Mychael himself at his pop-up every wednesday at Magdalena's party.
