The Taste of Travel
Some of the plates in this article were found from this Huffington Post and are based off of their choices. I added my own opinions and descriptions to each plate as well as a few dishes worthy of mention that I personally enjoy. Enjoy (or if not, check out the original article above)!
Eating and traveling; two things I love to do. I haven’t visited every continent (yet) but these dishes really made me hungry when looking them over.
North AmericaWhat better dish than the All-American hamburger with a side fries and an apple pie dessert? True, North America is made up of much more than just America, but apparently this is what really grabs people’s attention when they think of N. ‘Murica.
South AmericaA traditional dish from Peru called the Peruvian Ceviche is a seafood dish with citrus drizzled over it with spices galore. And don’t forget Inca Kola on the side (that stuff is great, I tried it while in Peru on a mission trip through SLA). Sounds pretty yummy if you’re into that kinda seafood (but I think I’ll stick to my fish plate from Kimball Farm). 😉
EuropePIZZA! The traditional go-to food for teens. Okay, it’s more than that, but you know what I mean. The Italian Neapolitan Pizza is the perfect pizza. It’s made with all the basic ingredients of a traditional pizza with tomato sauce and mozzarella cheese made in a BRICK OVEN. You heard me right – A BRICK OVEN PEOPLE! :O
AsiaIf you ever get the chance to stop by Thailand, try out the Thai green curry. This is a specialty Asian dish that you can’t afford to miss out on! It’s made with coconut milk, green curry paste, and can be eaten with noodles and meat, and many other things. My stomach is growling just writing this (help).
AfricaJollof rice. Sounds funny, huh? Well hold only your socks because this is about to get historical. Jollof rice has been around since tribal times in Africa, so this is some serious authentic food. It’s made of rice, tomatoes, onions, and other spices that make up this perfectly delectable dish. But listen to this, instead of using corn oil to fry the ingredients, they use coconut oil! (Insert hungry face here).
AustraliaSo I had some trouble thinking up an Australian dish, just like a lot of people do. Luckily the Huffington Post is here to help (as with all the other dishes). Damper is a traditional Australian soda bread that is made of a wheat based baked over the coals of a fire. YUM!
AntarcticaSo I didn’t find anything for this chilly continent from the Huffington Post, so I looked up some recipes. What I came up with was pretty interesting. They make this food called Pemmican (AKA the meat-bar). Sounds pretty weird, right? It’s a native American food, some say Cree, that is basically a mix of dried meat and fat. It can be eaten alone or mixed with a biscuit and water to make a new concoction called hoosh. Information found here.
So what did ya think? Think you would try any of these dishes? Which one sounds the most delicious to you? Let me know in the comments below! 🙂
