What do you look forward to eating when you are abroad?

For me, it's prawns in garlic if I am in Spain, pasta with pesto if I am in Italy, and any bread when I am in France. For me, they never quite taste the same when I am in the UK. What do you think?

Food Abroad ...

Tomatoes always seem to be sweeter and juicier that the ones we get here. Like to try local foods.

For me - pain au levain and those wonderful Coeur de Boeuf tomatoes in France. Also cherries when they are in season there, and peaches and nectarines .... In Italy, it's pasta of any description, in Spain - the fish - especially fresh anchovies. Forgot to add in the France bit - citron presse or orange presse - delish on a hot day!

Seafood

It doesn't matter where we go, I always have the seafood if we're near the sea.

I had to smile at Angel... she is being very restrained. She normally has a list of things she wants while she's on holiday. But she does have a very sweet tooth that girl ! ;o) Even breakfast has to be sweet !!

The local cuisine, but never sea food unless it is a freshly caught sea bass. And I leave the OH to eat the sheep's head :0) I adore Zuricher Art (sp) pork and mushrooms in a cream sauce and usually served with crispy roasted tatties. Don't know if it is a speciality of Zurich, but it's really scrumptious.

Local Delights

I love eating the food of whatever country I am in, I especially like to make the most of fresh fish. In Cuba we had paella which was made on the beach every day - well in a beach hut - not in the sand....anyways it was fabulous. Each day it was different but I liked the rabbit days. There were prawns as big as donkeys too.
Last year in Mexico I couldnt believe how much guacamole and salsa I could eat - every day almost.
I also like to sample the local drinks, just to be polite of course. Love a good Cuba Libre or a Strawberry Daquiri or a Mojito or or or stop now you lush....

Ooh, Noreen you do look glam! I will eat anything which is a local speciality, well, give a go once at least. Adore grilled fresh fish in the med - it always tastes so perfect. Salads dressed with local olive oil, olives, sun-ripened peaches...........mmm

Biggs, I think you are refering to Geschnetzltes. (the Zuricher Art, means zurich style) It is traditionally made with veal, thinly sliced, mushrooms and kidneys but in most of the restaurants here they are served without the kidneys. Its very easy to make too. My OH calls it my "heart attack" food as he needs to watch his cholestrol a bit. Served of course with a delicious crispy r&"246;sti to soak up all the juices. Yummy!

foreign foods

Please people, when you come to Turkey on holiday try the real local foods in a lokanta! How sad it is that people look for English breakfast, sunday roasts etc.. where is your sense of adventure? You come thousands of miles and look for English foods!!! Turkish food is wonderful and healthier for you as well. Real lokantas do not sell alcohol but you can drink somewhere else after your lovely meal - and they are usually a lot cheaper than the 'tourist traps'. Try it, enjoy and you will come again.
