Welcome to Part 4 of Food. Travel. Memory. Whenever I travel it’s the food memories that stick out: the Peking duck I enjoy whenever I visit my BFF in Washington, D.C., the all-truffle Valentine’s dinner in Assisi, being wined + dined in Costa Rica with new friends, the fish tacos in Belize…the list goes on.
So I’ve asked others their favorite food/travel memories.
Enjoy these unique (and tasty) memories—and be sure to share yours in the comments below or over on The Busy Hedonist Facebook Page.—Tracey CeurvelsEating Asado (Uruguayan BBQ) meats grilled to perfection on the roof of my former mother-in-law’s house in summer in Uruguay. Cheap red wine, mixed with Coke (don’t try it at home) and Ensalada Russa which is the South American version of potato salad but MUCH better. And my sister-in-law’s Dulce De Leche cake, which is to die for. Dusky sunset, after sitting around on the roof all day waiting for first the wood to be burned, then the coals gathered, then the meat cooked, a meal in Uruguay is like an adventure in fire and wood and animal parts that you would dare not eat normally!
One of my favorites is meeting a group of NASA scientists in very southern Chile, and hanging out with them for a few days drinking orange soda mixed with beer while they talked about their satellite-picture-taking sojourns over Antarctica! I really wish I had taken them up on their invitation to meet them in Greenland the next year. 🙂
