Bordeaux, France, taken on October 1, 2011

For fresh fruits, vegetables, meats, seafood, cheese, and bread, your best bet is a farmer’s market on a Saturday morning, and what better example is there than Bordeaux’s very own Marché Des Capucins? OK, I didn’t go there often when I lived in Bordeaux, but I enjoyed every visit, even if it was purely for the colours of the market that I loved so much 😉

November 22, 2014 – Moroccan food at the market

November 23, 2014 § Leave a comment

I went to the Christmas market in the Glasgow city centre today for the main reason of trying the FOOD. I went through the market briefly last week and saw a variety of food from different countries – Germany, India, France, Greece, and so on. The food hunt began and one of the things I tried was Moroccan food, featured here. I got couscous with chicken tajine and spicy lamb, served by this jolly man wearing a Santa hat (in addition to German bratwurst and Spanish paella). Boy the food was good and I was stuffed!

July 12, 2014 – Curry fish balls

July 13, 2014 § 2 Comments

Another food festival, woot! This time, it was Night It Up. My sister and I were smarter this time and went in the afternoon at the beginning of the event, avoiding all the line-ups that were sure to occur in the evening. We tasted lots of yummy food items, including stinky tofu, salty chicken, blooming onions, teppanyaki squid, takoyaki, and these classic curry fish balls. I was expecting four but got six instead, quite a good size. And I could not understand how something so simple could be so good!

June 28, 2014 – Taste of Asia

Instead of going to Taste of Asia tomorrow, why not go tonight? Every “Taste of” festival attracts crowds of people who line up for different types of ethnic foods, and this one is no different. Half an hour for some lamb kebobs? Quite the wait, but also quite the experience.

[Travel time] A week-long travel session begins today with a morning visit to Libourne, a town close to Bordeaux, where I finally met my blogger friend Stephane 🙂 The main destination was the market in the town centre, where lots of fresh foods were being displayed. Mmm, seafood!
