Something we have both seriously missed during our travelling adventure has been the ability to cook our own food and have access to familiar ingredients. Despite missing the kitchen, we have made the most of the food around the world. We often remind ourselves that we don’t know if and when we will visit these countries again, so to make the most of the local cuisine. Francis is particularly good at this. Goulash and heavy meaty meals don’t appeal to me like they do to him. These are some of the foods that I have really enjoyed or just had to try! Some countries didn’t make the cut, not because they didn’t provide tasty dishes but because I am trying to only post my favourites. Try not to lick your computer screen…
America: The photos are quite the heart attack. When in America, we had a little edible bucket list to complete (Americans have laughed at us for going to IHOP).
Peru: When people ask me about food in Peru, I don’t sound enthused. However, it must be alright because I have included quite a few photos. Alpaca, ceviche, quinoa soup. Yum!
London: This is an easy place to eat in and enjoy a variety of cuisines. Fortnum and Mason and Harrods were amazing luxury stores to dream over food at too.
France: The baguettes are crunchy, the cheese is no comparison and the wine, oh the wine. It is the best place to picnic, just hit the butcher, local market or patisserie and see where your nose take you! We were very lucky to also eat many home cooked meals with French families, providing us a very authentic experience.
Greece: Ohhhhh Greece. I loved going for a meal in Greece. We often would choose a starter, a main and a greek salad to share (one a day was essential). Greek food is amazing for tapas style dining. This is my pro tip for dining out in Greece. Vegetables are plentiful, and so is the olive oil! I really didn’t get bored of eating Greek food. Want to see more? Click here! Francis has posted lots. I can’t wait to get home and try to recreate some of these beauties.
And finally, the classic Greek Chicken Souvlaki…
Vietnam: Sometimes you need a break from local cuisine. Not in Vietnam. Even though we were there for a month, this was a cuisine that was so fresh and I could easily eat for every meal. I had no idea I liked Vietnamese food so much.
Cambodia: Each new country has a different drink that becomes our go to beverage. For example, Peru does pisco sour, Budapest did fresh lemonade, Greece had coffee frappe, Cambodia (and Thailand) do fruit shakes…
The end. I hope you enjoyed this little summary of my favourite foods from the past 7 months.
