Best of Food & Cooking 2016 — photo 5 of 50: The amazing shakshuka I had for brunch at Tasty n Sons on North Williams in Portland, Oregon. It consists of large chunks of: stewed tomatoes, red and green chili peppers (fairly mild), onion, garlic, merguez sausage (optional), and probably some olive oil. Two raw eggs were cracked over the top — one was cooked to the consistency of over-medium and the other over-easy. Two large slices of grilled (not toasted) bread were stuck vertically into the dish. It was fairly juicy, so the bread was very handy (and tasty) for sopping it all up. This shakshuka was spiced to perfection, and tasted out of this world — it was definitely worth the half-hour preparation time and its $14 price! April 2016. Camera used: Olympus OM-D E-M5 with Panasonic Lumix 12-35mm f/2.8 zoom lens.
