SOME LIKE IT HOT

IMG_0588I definitely like hot weather, hot food and countries with long hot summer.

Most countries that I visited with my husband Neno are in subtropical area (semi desert, desert, humid, oceanic subtropical) or in Mediterranean area.

In the spirit of each country we enjoyed its local food: street food, food courts, food in friends’ homes and restaurants, as well.

We met extraordinary people and started beautiful friendships. Some of them already visited us in Split: young ladies from Rio (Olá Andrea!),  Alessandro from Venice, Lim from Korea, José from Melbourne, Naomi and Boris = Split/Sydney connection, Dominica and Bart from Poland. We already cooked together in my kitchen and we enjoyed our meals on my balcony.

The others I am waiting to come to visit me in Split, hopefully next summer (Meitang, Gita, hope to  see you soon).

The cuisine of a country for me represents the heart of its tradition so I’ll try to bring it closer to you  with some of my favorite recipes.

Who could possibly resist all this amazing food!
