Old Florida

March 22, 2011 § 4 Comments

Since Don grew up in Tampa, and I grew up in Sarasota, we’ve both developed obsessions with the historic Columbia Restaurant.

The Columbia is a landmark in Ybor city Tampa, and reflects the history of the Spanish/Cuban history of the area. Every time we go home to Florida we make a point to visit the restaurant and most recently we picked up a copy of the Columbia cookbook so we could enjoy some of the delicious (garlic filled) recipes at home.

The other evening, I made the famous 1905 salad, and black bean soup, along with pork chops.

Don said it was so good he felt like he should’ve been dressed nicely for an at home dinner – that’s a good sign!
