This Week's Quiz

Guess where the following food photos were taken?




Got your guesses?
Here come the answers.
Ready?

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.

Well I can't say I've been all around the world eating ;) but I have just been to Lemonade. Have you been there yet? Do they have them in Northern California? We have a few here in SoCal. I'm sure you could google where they are and if you have one nearby be sure to check it out. Really, really yummy food. Sort of cafeteria style and very casual but healthy and delicious and yes, you have to try the Lemonade :)

Oooh, Valerie, I love the name: Lemonade. I haven't heard of the place before, but will definitely google it and see if there are any around here. I would try the lemonade first thing :)

Looks like no Lemonade in my neck of the woods :( But if I'm ever down your way, I know where to stop. Apparently there's one at LAX.
