TRAVEL NOTES - Incredible Food

UNITED KINGDOM | Saturday, 16 August 2008 | Views [438]

This blog entry is a place to recall some of the awesome food we've had since going on our travels. Some are there to reminisce about others so we can attempt to replicate when we get home.

Note: I'm a kiev and beans kind of man so you'll have to excuse my wide-eyed enthusiasm if some of the dishes below strike you as standard fare.

Brian's Carpaccio (Albi)

Carpaccio, lemon juice, salt, black pepper and parmesan cheese grated on top

Trounce's Scrambled Eggs (Paris)

Whilst I still believe that first class scramble eggs can be made in the microwave Tom delieved something special here

Camarilla's Tuna Pastries (Madrid)

Like miniature crispy cornish pasties with a tuna and other stuff in. One of the best things i've ever tasted. And I don't like tuna. (http://www.lacamarillarestaurante.com/)

Camarilla's pork on toast (Madrid)

A second entry for the legendary Camarillo. Like a bruschetta but with a thin layer of lightly grilled pork on it. Smeared in a honey mustard.

Clive's Omellete (St Lucia)

It was well hyped by the Mercado family but boy delivered - the mind boggles at how he turned a few ingredients into something so ridiculously tasty

Lassi (India)

Mango preferably, or any other fruit, natural yoghurt and sugar if the fruit isn't sweet enough, blended together.

Mango Tree Samosa's (India)

Again, like a cornish pasty and roughly the same size but with a thinner, crispier shell with a sweet and sour style content.

Funky Art Cafe Bruchetta (India)

Different every time but always amazing.

Calzone (South of France)

Great at the best of times but this one was something else - it had green pesto and herbs mixed with the tomato sauce on the outside

Lamb Pizza (Australia)

Wow. With mint sauce dressing. Best pizza ever. Thank-you Australia. Thank-you.

Chloes Bruschetta (New Zealand)

A regular fixture in the campervan and for good reason - it was incredible.

Windjammer Ribs (St Lucia)

Recipe unknown. Unbeatable.

12oz Fillet Steak Magnum (St Lucia)

I still think about this steak a lot

San Pedro Hummous (Belize)

They saw how much they liked it so gave us the recipe! 2x cans of washed chick peas, 8oz/25g of tahini, 1 small can of salsa, small hand full of cilantro, 1/2 cup of apple cider vinegar, juice of 1-2 limes, salt, pepper, 3 tbsp olive oil, 7 cloves of garlic & jalopeno to taste

Cara and Pollys Guacamole (Costa Rica)

Guacamole will never taste the same again. 2 avs, juice of 1 lime and a tomato, puree garlic, cumin, diced red onion, generous pinch of salt, chili flakes and a small amount of olive oil
