About Carolyng Unknown as the “Undercover Latina”, because if she was known she really wouldn’t be undercover, Carolyng expresses her multicultural heritage through foremost and most importantly food. When she isn’t making Venezuelan arepas, Portuguese bolinhas de bacalhau or good old homemade oatmeal-banana-carrot dog treats for her pup Napoleon, she works on her book about being first generation American and the wonderful culinary experiences that ensue. Paralegal by day and food lover all day, she never misses a moment to indulge, like using her visa points to buy a bright orange KitchenAid Stand Mixer (next on the list is a Vitamix). Fresh pasta anyone? How about hot from the oven pão caseiro? To her recipes are more like guides, adobo is underappreciated and a splash of wine is never enough – yet you can rest assured that whatever comes out of her kitchen will be delicious, fresh and all her own. She also runs the food blog, First Generation Funk.
