While the Alhambra may be its best known feature, Granada has a lively atmosphere (likely due to the large student population) and excellent food. I hadn’t realized until this trip that Granada is the Spanish word for pomegranate which explains why its representation is ubiquitous in this charming city.
From time to time, I read interviews with famous chefs or others with the question: what would you like for your final meal? Morbidness aside, I couldn’t begin to choose. Moreover, what meal would it be? What time of day? As I was compiling photos for 100 Posts of People and Places, I realized it was only fair to do a separate post of favorite foods and meals as well. What follows is my ideal day of eating (assuming I could transport myself magically and never get full). Continue reading “Foodie Friday | A Few Favorites”
Favorite eating establishments, that is! In addition to having world class recreation across every season and stunning scenery, Jackson Hole has a vibrant food scene. If there is an underlying theme to my go to places it is “Good Things Come in Small Packages.” The places I return to time and again are not too small but not too big – they are just right. They are not fancy and some are really just food trucks that don’t move.
Here are my current picks in alphabetical order (there is no other way I could rank them):
A local favorite that features small plates including house made fresh mozzarella, Bin22 has a wide variety of dishes with something to please everyone. Continue reading “Foodie Friday | Jackson (Hole) Five”
Heading to London? You won’t lack for dining options! Here are a few of my favorites from my most recent trip.
New to me, but a real crowd pleaser (NB – expect to wait about 30 minutes in line across the lane from the entrance – they do not take reservations), Bao has expanded from takeout only at Netil Market, to three locations, including the one in Soho where I ate. Yes, it seems a bit absurd to wait so long but bring a book, or a companion, and you will not regret it. Delicious Taiwanese dim sum and more. Continue reading “Foodie Friday | London”
While I loved staying at the Riad Fès and eating at a variety of restaurants, wandering the alleys of the medina with their mouthwatering displays did make me wish I could buy some provisions and cook a few meals — maybe next time!
Since we were there in springtime, the stalls were overflowing with the freshest produce in addition to everything else one could possibly need. Continue reading “Morocco | Fabulous Foods of Fez”
Will travel for food is my guiding principal. This can mean a destination vacation eatingat least three meals a day in an effort to have it all, or spending a day or some part of it exploring a neighborhood closer to home (wherever that happens to be). One of my new NYC favorites is High Street on Hudson in the West Village (and their irresistible breakfast bialys above). Continue reading “Foodie Friday | New York City”
I had no idea that saffron would be one of the takeaways (literally and figuratively) from my trip to Iran. According to Iranian legend, overconsumption can lead to death from laughter. There is no danger of that here in the States, where saffron is so expensive, many stores keep it under lock and key, if they carry it at all. Continue reading “FoodieFriday | Saffron-tastic!”
Foodie Friday and the wonderful bread of Iran. Continue reading Foodie Friday | Iran
Gelato may be my single favorite food. That is a strong statement, but I am okay with that. Some people spend their time in Rome visiting ancient ruins and churches, as do I. I just have other priorities, as well. I did indulge in artichokes alla giudecca, spaghetti alla carbonara and porcini just about every way possible. As you might imagine, not a bad meal … Continue reading Foodie Friday | When in Rome Eat Gelato
Simits, Gözleme, Lahmecun and Borek; Döner and Köfte and Imam Bayildi; Baklava, Salep and sweet Künefe, these are a few of my favorite things! Here are a few recommendations for a great day or two of eating in Istanbul. There is nothing like starting the day with a traditional Turkish breakfast which you can find at almost any hotel. Fun fact: breakfast in Turkish is … Continue reading Foodie Friday | Istanbul
