My favourite foods from around the World

Having spend the last 5 years travelling around the world, I’ve discovered some amazing food. Below is a section of my all time favourites.

Curry in India

curryI love spices. I love curry. What better place to have both.

Spending time travelling around India saw me try many different curries. North India offers more flavoursome curries, whilst the South is rich in spices.

India is also amazing for street food. I’ve had some of the best samosa’s from street vendors. They’re also very cheap and filling.

Steak in South Africa & Argentina

You can’t beat a good steak. I’d find it hard to find better quality steak than in Argentina or South Africa.

Having been to both, it’s difficult to choose between the two, but if I had to pick, it would be Argentina. The steaks are tender, flavoursome and moorish.

Tapas in Spain

I love the way the Spanish eat. Relaxing, talking with friends, drinking and nibbling on amazing food.

Don’t be afraid to try everything on the menu, especially if you’re eating with friends. There is so much choice including traditional Paella.

Pizza in Italy

If you want the best Pizza, go to Italy.

Italians have been making pizza for decades, and they say practice makes perfect.

Travelling round Italy, you’ll see pizzeria’s on every corner. I found, if you go off the beaten track, you’ll find the best pizza’s at very reasonable prices. Tourist hotspots such as Venice & Rome will charge you double the price. Don’t be afraid to wonder down the back streets and find that hot slice of deliciousness.

Dumplings in China

Thousands of dumplings are consumed on a daily basis in China. They are cheap, fresh and perfectly steamed.

The street food in China can sometimes leave a lot to the imagination. If you like deep-fried bugs, then your choice is endless. I did try some crickets, but can’t say I’d want them again.

Home cooked pulled pork in America

When I was traveling across the USA, I was lucky enough to spend time staying with a couple of American families. One in particular in North Carolina stuck with me.

On a warm Saturday afternoon in May, the BBQ was fired up and I was treated to some of the best BBQ food I’ve ever had. Hotdogs, ribs and my favourite, pulled pork. The flavour coming out of the pork was immense and it was too tender. If only they would have given me the recipe!
