It’s said that when a Costa Rican can make a good gallo pinto, they’re ready for marriage. But what’s in this all-day breakfast?
Food & drink
I went to northern Norway recently to see the northern lights. I saw them. It was nice. Whatever! But the real highlight of the trip was the cheese. The brown cheese. It doesn’t sound appealing, does it? If you continue reading, I’m not sure I’m going to make it sound any better.
Are you bored of mulled wine? If so, take a gander at these festive beverages:
What could be more delicious that a hot, stone soup of an autumn evening? Well, quite a lot I imagine. A soup made from stone doesn’t soup appealing, let alone edible. However, it is both.
Not only are pineapples delicious and absolutely suitable as a pizza topping, they’re also a rather fascinating little spiky fruit.
Well, well, well, who’d have thought it? Another Christian tradition that was influenced by Pagan traditions.
I can’t imagine you have ever really considered the history of tapas, have you? I mean, what’s to consider? Who doesn’t want a tiny plate of food with their drink? Actually, my 18-year-old self wouldn’t have; eating was cheating you see.
After a hard day at work, I do love to get home, pop the kettle on and make some dinner. I don’t tend to follow specific recipes as I’m pretty experimental in the kitchen. I’m a strong believer in the “chuck it in and see if it works” style of cooking.
Once, in Iceland, I joyfully bit into my first mystery bar and found… liquorice. Liquorice pieces within the chocolate bar. The horror.
I’m a very fussy eater. Unless I’ve eaten something before, and enjoyed it, there’s a strong chance I’ll just stare at it suspiciously for a few seconds, before slowly pushing the plate or bowl away from me.
