Fresh cooked food doesn't often cause problems but you're right to be cautious, India has an impressive rage of bugs. I recall seeing 2 young neurotics scraping black specks off toast (what about the knife, the plate etc) - they'd eaten toast and Lomotil for 3 weeks (not advised). My own strategy was to chomp up 2 cloves of garlic and wash them down with yoghurt. Lyall Watson, writer, had a parasitologist friend supply him with a beef tapeworm (easily dispensed with); he then ate and drank...

I imagine that with all the places you've been and eaten at, you likely have the antimicrobial resistance of penicillin. But those of us who get out less often do need to be careful. Nothing can spoil a vacation quite as much as a case of vomiting or diarrhea. A few minutes of gustatory pleasure don't make up for hours or days of GI distress. I wouldn't recommend the tapeworm therapy, even if it works. Has nasty potential side effects.

Actually K, neither would I, but as the author of 'Supernature' it was kinda in his brief ! His friend advised the beef tapeworm because they're easier to evict than pork ones (!) - he had to eat ~50% extra to placate the sucker (sic) BTW resistances don't really last that long but you're right, I very rarely got, or get ill.

I'm not a big fan of macarons (sorry, world!) but among them my favorites are coffee and Fruits Rouges. I noticed recently that there is a caramel with sea salt one now available...will report on that in July.

OMG, is that a rhubarb clafouti?

Re: Luxembourg, Old City

PortMoresby ·
It looks like rhubarb to me, too. I'd call it a tart but where do they call it a clafouti? I've never heard the word.

Re: Luxembourg, Old City

That does look like rhubarb, doesn't it? It was sitting right beside the ham and mushroom quiche. But rhubarb sounds appealing right now.....

Re: Luxembourg, Old City

PHeymont ·
Clafoutis (I lost an s in typing) is a French dessert that is essentially a tart with fruit (the most traditional is cherries) in a flan-like custard. Usually you bake part of the custard a bit, add the fruit and more custard. I always thought it was from Normandy, because I first encountered it there, and then in a Norman restaurant in Paris, but it turns out the food historians say it comes from Limousin, and the name is from the Occitan "clafotis" which means "filled." So what probably...

To be honest, Varsity ain't what it was when I was in college...there's better places around. Some good stuff on Marietta St. near the convention center, and lots of good places in Decatur area (we're near there). That's the kind of stuff I'm looking for to make up our road trip.

The best resource for good "american food" while on the road that I know of is www.roadfood.com . The website focus on quality non-chain restaurants, often mom and pop places, with good and often unique menu selections. Check it out. Not only can they help you in Colorado, they're useful throughout the USA. Just about the best tip to give someone traveling in the USA.

I took a look and it looks like just what I need. I can even use the info to plan our route. I had my mom look at it, too, and she said it reminds her of when she was a kid and my granddad had a book called Duncan Hines that had local places all over. I wonder if that's the same Duncan Hines as the cake mix?

Arthur Avenue is definitely a stop on my next NYC visit. Unfortunately my regional area has a dearth of generational family run restaurants and small butcher shops, bakeries and the like.

My wife sometimes believes that my main photo subjects are bread, fruit and veg, and birds perched on statues, so it's nice to know someone else appreciates how beautiful bread is, and how easy it is to smell it and taste just by looking at a great picture like this!

Maltese bread is something special. I'd certainly use it as an excuse, if you need one PHeymont, to visit Malta. Wonderful photo, IslandMan.

I also love a fresh loaf of bread. When it's just right, it's easy to make a meal of just bread and butter. I have great sympathy for those who can't eat gluten. I'm not sure I'd find life worth living without fresh baked goods.

Walking the narrow streets of Valletta - past the small shops that sell freshly cooked food and cakes. The smell of Coffee from the Cafes and Restaurants. And the smell of new leather. Brings back all the memories of wonderful Malta.

Re: Breaded swordfish, Palermo style. Wonderful!

Yes, PM, there are, especially between eastern Sicily and the Italian mainland. This serving was a little unusual in that it was very thinly cut, but of a huge piece. It was really good.

I enjoy trying these local restaurants in airports, especially when there's time between flights. It's one of the best developments of the airlines no longer offering meals.

Re: Eating our way through Istanbul (Part 2)

GarryRF ·
That was an amazing tour of gastronomic delights Paul. It takes some courage to indulge in something we don't recognise. But on a tour designed for tourists you know you'll be safe. So now you've acquired a taste for fish lets hope you continue indulging. You must have tried the Baklava ? Makes searching out a Turkish bakery worthwhile. And all that variety in winter too. My friends are in Turkey today and they're still waiting for spring to arrive !

Re: Eating our way through Istanbul (Part 2)

PHeymont ·
Of course we tried the baklava...several places, several flavors and more... Which gives me a moment to mention something I forgot in the blog...chicken-breast pudding, or tavuk göğsü. On Wednesday, Katerina mentioned it, and joked that people make faces when they hear about it. Didn't sound so odd to me. On Friday, Senem brought one to the table so we could try it...and it basically was a protein-enriched blanc mange. The chicken is boiled and separated into fine fibers and mixed with milk,...

Re: La Vucciria Market, Palermo

PHeymont ·
Can't help wondering at the similarity of the name, allowing for common letter/phoneme substitutes, to La Bouqueria Market in Barcelona. There's not a lot of agreement on where that name came from, by the way, but the best-sounding bet is that it comes from Catalan 'boc' for goat.

On our one trip to Hawaii, we ate in a few top-shelf listed-in-food-mags places, but in the end, my only real culinary memories of Hawaii are all the plate lunches and one incredible loco moco in Hilo... Thanks for bringing back pleasant memories!

Re: Ethiopia Musings: 4)The Food

Ethiopia was always on the TV News as millions were starving - and died. Their drought continued for many years. But thanks to "climate change" the rains returned and Ethiopia is now self sufficient in it's own food supply. It exports much of its produce to neighbouring countries too. Climate change isn't all bad news!
