Now that momo has unanimously stimulated everyone's appetite, I am doing an international food blog series. The first one is dedicated to the blogging kitties and woofies from Italy, Germany and Spain. Are we ready?
Some of you may have noticed that Charlie, Momo-dog and I are currently on tour in Berlin and we have decided that since all three of us were featured on the front page of Animal-Internet last week we should have a celebration. Being in Germany we have to try out the famous sausages and in particular the Thuringian sausage which has been produced for hundreds of years. The oldest reference to this is found in a transcript of a bill from an Arnstadt convent in the year 1401 and the oldest recipe dates from 1613.
The second is dedicated to Opus and Roscoe, two lovely ex-pat kitties living in Italy. Pizzas, pizzas and more pizzas! Yummy, yummy, good for my tummy! Enough said. Let's tuck in! Paws up, whoever doesn't like pizzas - I just don't believe you.
The third is dedicated to Chloe, my very cute Yorky terrier nomss friend from Spain. Eveyone knows of paella but, listen to this, all you moms and dads (especially dads), it's a dish cooked on Sundays by the man of the family as an appreciation for his wife who has toiled all week at the stove. In Valencia, giant paellas are customary prepared at mass gatherings such as festivals, campaigns etc. Chloe's mom took her to one last weekend.
That's it for today. I am too full to carry on. Next instalment is on Iranian and Cambodian cuisine. Why? SS carries out fieldwork in those countries and has many friends there. While she is one lousy cook, she and I both love eating.
