Well I just arrived in London around 12:30pm on the 11th of July and FINALLY entered my trip to the food world. I plan on exploring Europe and learning a stomach-full of new food, cultures and things beyond my wildest dreams.
Supposedly England doesn’t have much of a culinary filed within my passion. They do have a lot of pubs and my first experience was…….. questionable..!
I was just watching Julie and Julia on the plane over and when I saw ‘bruschetta’ on the menu, my stomach twitched, mouth watered, and eyes smiled in agreement. I got it right away and we also ordered some nachos. (Talk about an instant hunger and impatience to look for other restaurants)
The waitress was walking toward us and I went cross-eyed. My bruschetta (ideally a wonderfully toasted baguette with fresh heirlooms tossed in garlic, evoo, vinegar and maybe garnished with basil) was garlic bread with marinara and crumbles of feta cheese……..WOMP!
Food success #1= lacking :/
I definitely backed up my reasoning that ‘foodsetsthemood’ because we ate every single morsel and was skipping out in happiness. Ohh the joy that food gives us!!!
