Most of my memories travelling the globe are usually punctuated by the food I ate while I was away. Just thinking about them takes me right back in time. That, fresh bowl of tuna poké in Hawaii with a light dusting of black sesame seeds. The truffled mac and cheese in the middle of wintery New York that left us wanting more. The pizza by the slice in a three seater dive of a restaurant just near wall street. The steaming hot egg waffles fresh out of the press in Hong Kong. The fluffy, moreish nougat in Lucerne. The butter-y almond croissants we couldn’t stop eating in Paris.
DON’T EVEN GET ME STARTED ON THAT CANDIED APPLE BACON SUNDAE IN LA.
Don’t even get me started on that candied apple bacon sundae in LA. Oh sweet baby jesus. Or the white pepper chilli crab in Singapore. Or, that smokey naan fresh out of the tandoor topped with freshly churned dollops of butter in India. That, (THAT!) whole smoked trout on a bed of crushed herb-y potatoes in Hobart. Oh lord, then there were the oysters we devoured on the side of the road! Ohhhh, the list just goes on. Let me tell you, they were worth every damn calorie.
LET ME TELL YOU, THEY WERE WORTH EVERY DAMN CALORIE.
Lucky for me (and you), you don’t always have to hop on a jet-plane to relive the memories or to learn about good food. The InterContinental Hotels recently launched a new online series called Chef to Chef featuring a number of world-class chefs who travel to InterContinental Resorts around the globe to create a range of delicious dishes. Not only am I absolutely hooked on the series, but I also have a serious case of job-envy. I wonder if they need a travelling taste-tester?
So, feel like travelling to Thailand without the burden of having to pack a suitcase? Watch episode 3 of Chef to Chef with Ian Kittichai below. And be sure to check out the whole series here. Now, I don’t know about you, but I’m feeling kinda peckish. I could definitely go some Phla Pla Tuna! MC
