Traveling has broadened my palate at home.

New favorites include:

Home made Thai food

Hungarian goulash (gulyas leves)

HP sauce from the British Isles

Thai sweet chili sauce (soo tasty on hamburgers, haha)



Not that these foods aren't readily available in the States, but eating them authentically in the place they come from is the difference between eating a chili dog at a baseball game and eating one at a black-tie party. And then I go home and make them myself as authentically as possible...I love to cook, so this is always a fun challenge. And it's a great way to remember your times on the road.

What foods/dishes have you brought home with you?

Thai food for sure, but the lack of locally available Thai veggies here severely limits me. After having the real deal, substitutions don't cut it. Even the Thai restaurants substitute and mostly suck. Almost anything Mexican is a snap though, of course.

I know that crepes are hardly traditional Greek food, but I had the best crepe of my life at a creperie in Perissa, on Santorini. It was filled with kalamata olives, feta cheese, boiled egg, and mushrooms, and I have been trying to re-create it ever since I got back stateside. And seeing as I am not adept at cooking crepes, I've been trying to re-create it with store-bought soft tortillas. Not working. :P

On my most recent trip to Scotland, I had Jell-O and ice cream together for the first time. Where has THAT been all my life?!
