Is there such a thing as too much truffles? This is what happened at the end of our meal at Amerigo dal 1934, when Chef Bettini’s famous truffle egg was placed on the table in front of us.
It’s no secret that I am a little bit food obsessed. In fact, if I had to identify my passion, it would certainly be food, and I want to spend as much time as I can eating food. This is why I am a bit surprised that during our recent midnight food tour of Bangkok I was more impressed with seeing Bangkok at night, than eating all of the delicious food.
It takes a lot to figure out the right time to eat the right food in Spain. Learning when to eat in Spain is almost like a science. Good thing I can eat churros in Barcelona at any time.
But I thought I had some knowledge on the topic. I understand the basics of pho and bun cha, and even know some food words in Vietnamese. The ingredients, and how to cook some of the most iconic Vietnamese foods, though, remained elusive. That is, until we attended a cooking class in Hanoi.
I was recently asked, by two different people, what is my favorite restaurant in Bangkok. It’s a stumper, really. This is not only because there is still part of me that is intimidated by Bangkok, and its food scene. It is mostly because we have focused so much on eating nothing but street food in Bangkok, easily one of the best cities in the world for cheap street eats. That’s why we jumped at the chance to take a midnight tuk tuk tour with Bangkok Food Tours, to explore the city through some of its most famous street eats in a famous form of transportation.
I never knew how to make fresh pasta, but always wanted to learn. Yummy Italy offered us the chance to learn how to make pasta in Italy, and I welcomed the chance.
One problem: we were learning in the kitchen of a Michelin star restaurant, alongside a famous American chef. I was intimidated to say the least.
This was our fourth trip to Spain, and still, after all of these visits, we can’t seem to figure out what to eat when. There are these rules about when to eat in Spain that I just can’t wrap my head around. I know the Spaniards eat dinner late, like 10pm or later. It is […]
When you tour a region like Emilia Romagna for two full weeks, eating yourselves silly, you are bound to eat tons of great food. During our trip we ate truffles and artisan gelato, toured vineyards, and dined in the company of Michelin star chefs. So, when we heard that there was a fancy restaurant, with […]
I have been spending more and more time on Instagram. Now, for a lot of people, they maybe can handle one or two social media channels, and want no more. But as a blogger, I kind of feel like I have to be on them all. I am not, though, I just refuse. I spend my […]
I wondered if we were the only people driving around Emilia Romagna with a giant hunk of cheese in our trunk. In a region that is so passionate about food, though, I highly doubted we were alone in our cheese transport, straight from a cheese maker in Italy. It’s no secret that I love cheese, and […]
