Here we have Tiffany who tells her story of how the recipe she shares with us has become her inspiration. Today Ms. Tiffany Marie shares her “Pork Shoulder” (Pernil) 

Tiffany tells us how this recipe has grown to be her favorite recipe .. Growing up I would wake up to the aroma of my grandmother’s pernil cooking in the oven it was always such a wonderful smell. I enjoyed watching her season it the night before. The flavor! With a whole head of garlic it is delicious. Puerto Rican style! She would use a pilòn (morter & pestle) But I quickly purée it in a small food processor . We cook it for special occasions.
