Leave it to us… We really tried to put together a list of our 10 favourite food photos. We just love food too much to narrow it down that far. Instead, we bring you our 15 favourite photos of food.
We hope you’ve already eaten because we’re bringing you some serious food porn!
Most people probably wouldn’t classify dulse as food, let alone food porn. But for me, it goes deeper. The smell takes me right back to my home in Canada, and the bustling Saint John City Market. And believe me, that place is a serious foodie heaven.
Oh, Southwest France… We have so many wonderful food memories from this area and many of them involve Foie Gras, wine and wonderful friends. This particular starter of Foie gras with crispy bacon and crème brûlée was eaten overlooking the beautiful Basque countryside.
It probably doesn’t come as a shock, cheese is a big favourite of ours, particularly with me. This incredible cheese course was my meal at La Cloche a Fromage Cheese Restaurant in Strasbourg, France. Andrew enjoyed an incredible Raclette. This place definitely has the CheeseWeb stamp of approval!
To choose one favourite meal cooked by our dear friend Cedric is impossible because everything he cooks is heavenly. We urge you to visit Holling Grange and see for yourself. Instead I chose my favourite based on the photo alone. I love the beautiful colours and textures of this dish, which features chickpeas, chorizo and scallops. Divine!
Atlantic Canadian lobster is simply my favourite food in the world (and believe me, that’s a really tough call). I’ve been on a quest, for as long as I can remember, to find the world’s perfect lobster roll. This one I ate on Grand Manan Island, may just have been it. But it’s not going to stop me from continuing my quest!
I’m not ashamed to say, Andrew and I ate Pierogi every day we were in Krakow, Poland. We’re not sure why this particular variety was called Russian Pierogi, but the potato and cheese filling was definitely our favourite.
I’m sure I’ve mentioned Masla Dosa at least a dozen times since our visit to Bangalore. We are still dreaming about these crispy delicious Indian crepes and their spicy filling. Although Andrew learned how to make them, nothing could top our dosa introduction at the India Coffee House.
Belgian cuisine – you just can beat it. Although we love eating our way across Europe and the rest of the world, we have a soft spot for the food made right here. This dish combines two things I’ve learned to love since moving here, duck and foie gras. This delicious tower of goodness was served at La Broche in Dinant.
There’s nothing better to warm you up on a cold, blustery day than a hot bowl of soup. We enjoyed this hearty seafood chowder on Ireland’s southwest coast. The Illy coffee gave us the added energy to jump back in the car and continue our road-trip.
This beautiful seared beef dish was served at another beautiful Belgian restaurant, this time in Antwerp. Het Pomhuis, made our list of favourite restaurants in Belgium.
We’re big fans of meat in tube form and the healthy hotdogs from Brussels-based Hopdog are some of our favourites. This delicious version is a chicken sausage with BBQ sauce and crispy fried onions. A perfect snack when you’re shopping down town.
There are some fantastic foodie evens in Brussels and one of our favourites so far has been Culinaria. This beautiful pork dish was one of 4 courses served by Michelin starred chefs in an upscale canteen style setting.
Cupcakes seem to be all the rage in Belgium these days. These pretty little ones were actually photographed (and enjoyed) at Holling Grange. They tasted as sweat as they look!
I’ve always been a bigger fan of savoury foods, over sweet. (Andrew is the sweet-tooth of our family). But when we first moved to Belgium, I fell in love with the moelleux au chocolate. I really can’t think of a better way to end a meal than a cake of molten dark chocolate swimming in creme Anglais.
You didn’t think I was going to do a food porn post without a nod to Belgium’s favourite treat, did you? I know it’s a hotly debated topic (almost as controversial as who serves the best frites), but this is my favourite waffle in Belgium. It’s a Liege waffle, topped with cherries and a scoop of vanilla ice-cream, made by the venerable Belgian institution, Dandoy.
