Estonia: gourmet travel notes

Estonia is a small country on the northeastern coast of the Baltic Sea. Until 1991, it was one of the Soviet republics and, while it was part of the USSR (since 1940), it was considered “Soviet abroad”. Everything there has always been a wonder to the common Soviet worker: cozy, cute, beautiful, well-groomed, polite. Actually, this is how everything remains today, in 2010. I was able to be convinced of this by visiting the capital of Estonia – beautiful Tallinn.

Meze: Gourmet Travel Notes

When I was going on a trip to Cyprus, I knew that this is the island, in the coastal waters of which Aphrodite was born, and which over its centuries-old history has been influenced by various other cultures. And every guidebook also advised: “Be sure to try the meze.”

Abkhazia: gourmet travel notes. Part 1

The word “Apsny” in translation from Abkhaz into Russian means “Country of the Soul”.

Foodie Travel Notes: South Korea. Part 1

Foodie Travel Notes: South Korea. Part 1

What did I know about South Korea before I got there? I admit – a little. Of course, I knew that “Korean carrots” are not Korean at all. They don’t eat that in Korea. And this is true – they do not eat. Although, there is undoubtedly something similar. Perhaps our “Korean” carrot is a simplified and less spicy version of kimchi.

Gourmet Travel Notes: Lunch Outside the Wall of Constantinople (Istanbul). Part I

I honestly went to Istanbul to eat. This was my honeymoon trip; in the midst of the wedding fever, I lost six kilograms and one and a half sizes; and in Istanbul I was primarily interested in kefta, and secondarily in Sultanahmet. I probably lied about the order; but this very köfta companions really stood at the forefront of my list of Istanbul values.

Cyprus is an affordable tourist paradise. This island has a convenient location, ideal climate for many, warm clear sea, ancient antiquities and, of course, an interesting cuisine. Cyprus’s fortunate position at the crossroads of the East and Europe creates an incredible combination of culinary traditions with the inclusion of Oriental, Jewish, African and European cuisines.

Gourmet Travel Notes: A Taste of Cyprus. Part 2

We continue our story about the goodies and delicacies of the beautiful island. It is customary to start the morning in Cyprus with coffee, but oddly enough, a cup of Cypriot coffee in the midst of the heat of the day has a noticeably better effect, lifts our spirits and does not let the hot sun tire us out until the evening. Following the rule that wherever the best products are locals prefer, we easily switched to coffee and never regretted – coffee is great here.

Gourmet travel notes: lunch outside the wall of Constantinople. Istanbul. Part 2

Constantinople food is not only tasty, but also beautiful. These are always voluminous decorations and always show. For example, “shawarmyators”. Waiting for clients, they hum and knock at ease, performing with huge meat knives some intricate rhythms, clearly inherited from their uncle, dad and grandfather. And three shawarmators are already an orchestra.

Gourmet Travel Notes: Honey and Milk from Israeli Cuisine. Part I

In general, everything is as bequeathed: the earth flows with milk and honey; the roofs of our houses are cedars, and the ceilings are cypresses; fig trees, vines and pomegranate orchards. And these people still argue where the notorious Eden is hidden. Now imagine. The piercing blue Levantine sky, without a single cloud, of unthinkable height. A glass of pomegranate juice, a shade so zealous, so alive …

Gourmet’s Travel Notes: Honey and Milk from Israeli Cuisine. Part 2

The three pillars of Israeli cuisine are the Mediterranean climate, kosher and the vast geography of the inhabitants of this small but so multi-layered country. Now they are all Israelis, they all eat shakshuka for breakfast with salad, hot bread, various spreads and pates and eat strawberries in December. And if you ask “what did your grandmother cook?”, Then you can write a whole novel from the answers.
