Around the World in Four Food Stops

Around the World in Four Food Stops

Travelling around the world can be so much more than sightseeing, shopping and museums. Without experiencing the local cuisine, you can’t claim you’ve really got to know a new country. Each country has their own specialities, which they are immensely proud of. In many cases, regions or even individual cities will claim that they have unique specialities and that they need to be eaten in a specific way. The British people have an ongoing debate about whether you put the clotted cream on before the strawberry jam, or the other way around. You better know which way it is, depending on where in the country you are, or you may offend your hosts!

Discovering US Dehy + Dehydrated Potatoes Recipes

Friends are oftentimes surprised when they see how dexterous I am when working in a kitchen. I may not look like that girl who is domesticated and dedicated to spending most of her hours holding pots and pans, but I know my ingredients and the basics of cooking.
