Liquid Nitro Chocolate Almond Truffle with Warm Whiskey Caramel – The Chew
Food glorious food! The majority of my photos are from the food and wine festival which I seriously couldn’t wait for. Though I have to admit this only half of the stuff I ate – I was so busy scarfing it down I didn’t get a photo. Ah well, I enjoyed it.
Cannoli al cioccolato: Chocolate-covered cannoli filled with sweet ricotta, chocolate and candied fruit – Italy
Fresh potato pancake with Scottish smoked salmon and herb sour cream – Scotland
Ricotta & zucchini ravioli with tomato sauce – Sustainable Chew
Kefta pocket: Ground seasoned beef in a pita pocket – Morocco
Baklava – Morocco
Crème brûlée vanille chocolat – France Croissant aux escargots with garlic and parsley – France
Lobster and seafood fisherman’s pie – Ireland
Soufflé de yuca: Yuca soufflé topped with griddled cheese – Dominican Republic
Haggis with neeps and tatties – Scotland
A couple of other stand out things I ate but didn’t get a photo of was Sweetcorn Cheesecake from Mexico (omg amazing) and from Japan Teriyaki a gyoza bun which is a steamed bun filled with chicken, vegetables and sweet teriyaki sauce (equally amazing!). I also tried a funnel cake for the first time which is difficult to eat sitting on the ground with just a fork!
So time for our out of park culinary adventures. First of all, can I live at IHOP? Pancakes are my favourite thing ever! We went three times over the two weeks – including for dinner one night.
Chocolate chip pancakes
Pancakes with strawberries & bananas
Red Lobster is always a firm favourite for Topher and I so it’s not a trip there without paying a visit. I had my usual combo of lobster, shrimp and scallops.
Other places I recommend for food if you’re sick and tired of the old burger and fries combo is Sweet Tomatoes. Amazing salad bar and lots of delicious soups. Also for an alternative fast food place; Panera Bread. Sandwiches and soups. So delicious. Everyone was thankful for something a bit healthier. Especially after the breakfast below. Only in America!
