Can you believe that it’s almost May and it’s still 45 degrees out? I certainly can’t! On days like these, I wish I were somewhere warm and tropical, like Bermuda! Bermuda is one of my favorite places. I went there two years and had a blast. It’s a fairly small island, so there’s not much disconnect between the tourists and locals. One spot both groups like to hang out at is The Swizzle Inn. It’s one of the oldest and most well known pubs in Bermuda, and has a unique style of its own. The inside walls are covered in …
This past October I went to Italy. I started in Venice and took a train from there to Rome. They’re both very beautiful, yet very different cities. Venice is much quieter and had an older crowd. Rome was crowded everywhere, and seemed to have ancient monuments around every corner. But both cities were filled with great Italian food!
The specialty drink in Venice is an Aperol Spritz. It’s served at most restaurants and bars there. Traditionally the drink is served before a meal to help with digestion, but you can order it at any time of day, with or without food. …
While I was abroad in Barcelona last semester, I was able to travel a lot on weekends to other countries. This met experiencing a bunch of different cultures, including the food. It’s amazing how much food can vary from country to country. And a lot of the time, countries will have the same food item, but it will taste completely different in each one. Pizza, for example, tasted amazing in Rome, but back in Barcelona, it was essentially just bread with minimum cheese on top, not exactly what I was looking for.
A lot of the places I visited have a …
While in Barcelona, I was able to attend a cooking class at Cook And Taste. The local company has an instructor teach you how to cook dishes that are traditionally found in the Catalan region of Spain, such as Tortilla de Patatas (a potato omelette) and Crema Catalana (a milky dessert). I also learned how to cook once of my personal favorites, Paella. It’s a staple at any Catalan restaurant, along with tapas and sangria. Paella is a rice based dish, usually with some kind of meat or fish, although you can make it vegetarian by omitting the meat and …
While living in Barcelona, I got to experience a ton of the city’s amazing restaurants. There was everything from traditional Spanish food to Turkish durums. But the food I found myself eating the most was Mexican! Growing up, my family was never really into Mexican food, so it wasn’t until I was about age 12 or 13 that I realized how much I loved it. While Boston certainly has an ample amount of Mexican restaurants, I found them to be practically everywhere in Barcelona. I wish I had time to try them all, but I did get to try a …
In the list they put together back in January, the editors at Epicurious named Toronto this year’s Food City. And as a native of the city (read: lived there for a year), I’ve decided to give a few reasons why I think it deserves the title.
First the reason why it was on the list: new restaurants. David Chang has three new spinoffs of his Manhattan-based tasting-menu restaurant Momofuku Ko – Shoto, Daisho, and Noodle Bar – which have really done much to raise the food status of the city. Chef Daniel Boulud also opened Café Boulud in the past year, …
I’m finally back from my blogging hiatus, after spending almost a month in Asia! I traveled to Beijing, Hong Kong, Macau, Taipei, and Guangzhou to sightsee, visit family, and of course, enjoy all the delicious food. It was my first time visiting mainland China (Beijing and Guangzhou) and Taipei, Taiwan. Today’s blog – part 1 – focuses on some good eats in Beijing and Guangzhou. Beijing is the capital of China and historic site where the Great Wall, Tiananmen Square, and Forbidden City are located. Guangzhou is the third-largest Chinese city (after Shanghai & Beijing), located in Southern China.
The number one must-eat food in …
My first full day in Livorno,Italy, my friend came back to his apartment to make lunch for us, It was on this day that bringing out the wine for both lunch and dinner, having wonderful conversations was a part of my brief but everyday Italian life!
After the first lunch I thought for sure I would need a siesta every afternoon but it is amazing how quickly I got adjusted to having wine with every meal! I have always loved Italian wine and in Italy the wine does taste better!
Being in Tuscany, I would expect nothing less than wonderful wine! Where …
