They’re lots of traditions to be met when in London:
- drinking more beer than water
- visit something new visit
- buy a pair of new shoes in my fav shop
- eat a proper burger
Re the last one, this time I found one of the definitive places: better then hard rock cafè (but not as big), sticky fingers (but not so full of memorabilia), byron (and not so many franchises, Byrons are opening everywhere) or local pubs (and not so oily).
I’ve never been to Japan. But it’s in my top 5 places to visit asap, now that Argentina has been ticked.
I’ve always had a deep adoration for Japanese culture so I started to read about customs and habits and now I appreciate not only sushi but also various other dishes.
Anyway not having had the chance to visit the country yet, my experience is just focused on what the Japanese kitchen means for Europeans. So I’m not sure if what I’m eating can be considered as authentic cooking, but I like it anyway. And I like to cook it by myself also!
After several attempts I’ve improved my skills on cooking sushi rice (half of a successful sushi). This is my recipe:
This rice must be consumed within 24 hours and it is suitable for all types of sushi (maki, nigiri, chirasi, temaki, gunkan) or sashimi.
And this has been the result:
Argentinian food is not just asado! Despite you’ll find a grill in every restaurant around the country, you can also discover different specialities in every region. But there are two dishes you can be sure to meet in every place you visit: a dessert with dulche de leche and Empanadas.
It seems they arrived in Argentina with the Portuguese, but their origins can be found in Moorish Iberia and in India (like the samosa). They look like italian calzone also. So although it’s not very clear where they come from, I think it could be a mix of different cuisines. And a very good mix actually!
