Eating the World

To all the fabulous Dads out there... have a great Father's Day on Sunday!

‘What’s your favourite food?’

This is a question I get asked a lot. It’s really hard to say as I adore it all... except lamb’s balls, those were not on adore level, more like ohmygarlic what-did-I-just-eat level.

I’ve been lucky to travel a bit and I’ve tried all sorts of things, from snake in Rio to guinea pig in Peru – don’t lynch me, it’s one of their national dishes – flying fish in Greece, bright pink tomatoes in France and gigantic scallops in Italy.

It’s a thing I have, I feel like I need to eat the world and I have so much more of it to cover. I mean what about Asia, now that is an untapped foodie garden of Eden for me that I can’t wait to get to… one day hopefully.

So with all this wondrous diversity in the world, what is it that you really adore eating?

I find some most people just want comfort food, the food that they grew up with that made them happy. Those old recipes are so treasured, recipes from ouma. They have soul and smell old and precious. Keep them safe.

Other adore mountain cheese from France, the stinkier the better with crusty bread and a simple glass of wine *drool*.

And some prefer the fragrance and mystique of spice and all things curry from the East.

It’s so very personal isn’t it?

I’m off to the Taste of London next week to get us some inspiration and the newest foodie trends and goodies from that side of the pond.

 If there is anything you‘d like me to take a special look at whilst I’m there, just let me know, I’d be thrilled to hear from you.

Yours in taste bud anticipation,
