When were you live gets cold, I can recommend no better remedy than a hot soup or stew (they are great remedies for recessions too!) The ingredients for Moqueca, a Bahian fish stew, are transnational with plants from Asia, Africa, and America. It includes shrimp originally from China, garlic which are from South western Asia, onions from Iran, fish from the Americas (kingfish, mackerel or bluefish), lemon and lime from Asia, black pepper from India, tomatoes from the Americas, coconut from South America and or Asia, cayenne paper from Mesoamerica, and palm oil from Africa.
