"Is there a billionaire or a despot anywhere on earth who at this precise moment who is eating better than us?" -Anthony Bourdain
Not exactly... but perhaps I will reuse that line when the time comes I indulge in truffles and foie gras made by a great French chef.
Nor did I ever plan to incorporate what others have labelled their blog as a "Foodie" blog.
But for the sake of Gastronomy and exploring Culture here is some eye candy:
Columbian Coconut Candy: Super Turron Supercoco
This is an all natural Columbian candy I discovered from a friend. Maybe because it's non-domestic that gives it a tastier than many other candies I have tried. There is another called Big Ben in a coconut flavor that was tastier but I could not find it.
Belgium Trappist (Monk) Beer
Foolish me, yet not so. I lugged back a six pack of this stuff in my luggage and gave them out as gifts on my recent backpack trip to Europe. It's better than giving (or that is getting) shot glasses like usual. Instead of lugging them home I wondered if they are available here in the United States. Yes, the Belgium Trappist (Monk) brewed beers are available in select few markets but I am reading they can be ten dollars or a bit more a bottle. I paid a bit over two euros a bottle. I guess that goes the same for most select market beers like paying eight dollars for a Duvel or Delirium at a European restaurant here in the United States.
