This Week's Quiz

Guess where the following food photos were taken?

Got your guesses?
Here come the answers.

1.  Smoothie bar:  airport in Amsterdam.  Best. Airport.  Ever.  All other airports?  Take notes.  Copious notes.

2. Gorgeous pastry:  Marakech, Morocco.  This is actually pigeon pie, aka squab.  It's baked in a flaky pastry that's a bit like phyllo dough; this one has cinnamon sugar sprinkled on top.  Pastilla is its official name, and my stomach will singingly verify it is delicious.

3.  Self-powered smoothie:  Bergen, Norway.  Earn that snack by pedalling the bike to generate the energy to run the blender.  Those Norwegians are clever.  No wonder they're all so svelte.

4.  Lobster:  Boston, Massachusetts.  Also, New Hampshire.  OK, I'll admit it, I ate four of them.  I lost count.  They were good.  Leaves in New England were pretty.  'Nuff said.

How about you?  What food-related adventures have you been having lately?  Been eating your weight in butter anywhere special?

I gotta get me one of those bikes.
