Hey so as i sit here enjoying every crunch of my crisps i thought i would do a quick blog about foods i miss from the countries i have been to and what i miss when i leave the UK….
UK: it has to be Walker’s Cheese and Onion Crisps and Heinz Salad Cream (My extreme addiction to salad cream led me to take 4 bottles to Cuba with me on my study abroad, they last 10 months!!!)
Cuba: The avocados and guavas were sooo fresh and tasty. Also the man 2 blocks from made house who made what could be the best and freshest churros in the world.
Jamaica: Jack Fruit and Sugar Apples…… AMAZIIIIINNNNGGGGG In generally crave anything from Jamaica as its in my heritage and we even though eat the traditional dishes in England, there is just something about eating home food in your home country that makes it taste so much better!!
U.S.A : Well most things you can buy here in the UK but nothing is like Aunt Annie’s Cinnamon Pretzel with a Strawberry Lemonade to wash it down or a ‘Love It’ size cup of French Vanilla and Cookie Dough Ice Cream, Cookies, Fudge, Caramel and chocolate sauce.
Mexico: My undying love for Gorditas especially carne asado con queso or a burrito con salsa valentina (Any one know where i can get Salsa Valentina in London?) OMG mole chicken with real chocolate sauce with rice or chicken pozole is the best winter warmer!!! Bombas or tortilla with melted cheese and salsa are a good party dish as well. Although i could eat most Mexican food without a problem!!
Greece: I fell in love with tzatziki sauce when i went there 6 years ago and i still but it thanks to Tesco!!!
Catalunya, Spain: There is a Seafood Paella call Fideua that i have when i spend my summers in Spain !! It is made with little noodles cooked with seafood. Anyways i love that too!!
After all that i think i’m going to go a bit mad then maybe find a gym because the thoughts alone must have given em a few calories!!!
Next place i’m off to is Honduras and i’m already excited about the food there!! Any recommendations are welcome…..
