‘Idol’ Cast-Off Turns To Home Cooking For Comfort

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – What do you do once you’ve been eliminated from American Idol? Drown your sorrows in home cooking, of course.

At least that’s the plan for Puerto Rico native Jorge Nunez, who was voted off Idol this past Wednesday (Mar. 12).

Although he’s sad to get the boot, Nunez can’t wait to get back to Puerto Rico so he can eat hometown cuisine again.

This includes a dish called “Mofongo Con Carne Frita,” which consists of mashed plantains with fried pork, olive oil, and garlic.

Says Nunez: “I’ve been away for months, so I’m ready to go home and finally eat some Puerto Rican food!”

Nunez also anticipates that his big, loud, Latin family will throw him a homecoming party – in true Puerto Rican fashion – to lift his spirits.

However, he insists that he’s happy with his experience on Idol and feels like good things are in store for his future.
