Happy Monday, everyone. Congrats to all who have are completing the A to Z Challenge! Respect.
Reflecting on my past few novels, I've noticed my characters generally have a kind of food they love. Serenity from Build A Man scoffs Jaffas at every opportunity, while Mattie in The Hating Game has a fondness for prawn crisps. It's no surprise they adore munching so much, I guess, given that my first thought in the morning is 'what yummy thing am I going to have for dinner tonight?'
I've lived in several different places around the globe, and I wanted to share some of my favourite dishes with you.
Halifax, Nova Scotia (my birthplace): It's gotta be lobster with garlic butter, and Blueberry Betsy for dessert.
Montréal, Quebec: Poutine with fois gras at Au Pied de Cochon wins every time! Poutine is chips (French fries) with cheese curds and gravy. You really couldn't get anything fattier, but oh... *rubs belly*
Wroclaw, Poland: I'd kill for some pirogi ruski, little dumplings stuffed with cheese and onion. I'm drooling.
London, UK: Give me some falafel from Falafel King on Portobello Road, and I'll die a happy woman.
What's your favourite food, from your hometown or beyond? You are NOT allowed to say chocolate! :)
