Daily Posts Daily Prompt: Some people eat to live while others live to eat. What about you? How far would you travel for the best meal of your life?
I don’t think I would travel that far just for a good dish. I try to eat well to live well and make a lot of my meals myself. I source exotic recipes and their ingredients and make the food myself. I’m not an amazing cook, I make no claim to be. But I can follow a recipe and with a number of high-quality recipes you can find on the ‘net these days its a real pleasure eating quality, exotic food that costs less than a third of the price.
But do not misunderstand, if I were already in a foreign land then I would go out of my way to sample everything from the street food to the top-class restaurants. I firmly believe that food, like language, is built into the culture of a society. Not just the manner in which it is cooked but the way in which it is eaten can also tell you a lot about the people and their history.
I am an extremely under travelled individual so for me, even when my budget is tighter than normal, cooking and eating is a way to travel the world without me ever having to leave my house.
I long for the days when I can travel, but until then, I shall take a tour of the world in my humble little kitchen.
