I was immediately intrigued, so I went and found this video (enjoy it--it's short and sweet). I love how British chef Allegra McEvedy pores over her well-used travel journals and comes up with her own recipes based on wonderful things she's eaten on her travels.
I was reminded of how great a role meals have played in my family's travels (as if I could ever forget--we practically plan vacations around food).
There was dessert after my 2008 birthday meal in Hong Kong.
There were many instances of amazing ramen and gyoza in Japan.
There was this canal-side omelet in Amsterdam,
roasted chicken in Bruges,
and fanciness-aplenty in Provence.
That's only scratching the surface, of course. I hope you all have some wonderful travel-related food memories, as well. Oh, and I'll be buying Allegra's book and sharing in her "borrowings." Maybe I'll try some re-creations of my own--just not the fried crickets and ants we had in Hanoi...
