Notes from a Foodie Chat

Spread the love

Anything that calls for an hour of discussing food and drinks from around the world with like-minded peeps is an hour spent well in my book. So this last Wednesday, I attended a twitter chat hosted by BootsnAll editor, Adam Seper and here’s some of the things I learnt along the way:

1. Good Street Food: Bangkok. “Make sure you go to the night market and the weekend market in Bangkok and just wander” – suggests BootsnAll.

2. Drink I Can’t Wait to Try: A terremoto in Santiago, Chile. White wine, fernet, and pineapple ice cream. Strong, weird, great, and packs a punch.

3. Bland and Boring Food:  Bolivia. I did not know that!

4. Surprisingly Spicy Food:  Bruschetta with ‘nduja in Calabria, Italy. According to the  Times, “Nduja is made from pork and pork fat, has robust red-pepper spicing and a spreadable texture.”

5. Spiciest Pepper: Ghost pepper. Further research on my behalf revealed that it is awesome as pepper spray.

Who knew, right?
