So, who is hungry? I found some International dishes you might be interested in. Not all countries were created, but here are some that were made for the Sidney International Food Festival. Let me know what you think. What other items would you add to the dishes?
BRAZIL: Banana leaf, limes, pineapple and passion fruit.
My thoughts: I would have substituted the pineapple with mangos sliced up. The mangos would have stood out brighter in color.
CHINA: Pittaya/Dragon fruit and star fruit.
My thoughts: Never heard of Pittaya. Wonder what they taste like..
FRANCE: Blue cheese, brie and grapes.
My thoughts: Oui, cela semble délicieux!
GREECE: Feta cheese and kalamata olives.
My thoughts: Oh yes, please!
INDIA: Curry, rice, pappadum and wafer.
My thoughts: I usually never eat curry, but I’d try this!
ITALY: Basil, pasta and tomatoes.
My thoughts: I’ve always loved Italian delicacy.
JAPAN: Rice and tuna.
My thoughts: Simple and delicate..
LEBANON: Lavash, fattoush, herb spring.
My thoughts: The presentation is bold with a pop of color. Very nice!
TURKEY: Turkish delight.
My thoughts: I’ve never had a Turkish delight, ever! I must try one soon.
VIETNAM: Rambutan, lychee, star fruit.
My thoughts: I like the different shades of colors in this one.
