Bringing exotic ingredients home from far flung homes is a wonderful way to keep treasured memories alive… What foodie finds do you save space for in your suitcase?
Yesterday we huddled indoors and tried our best to fight the jet lag, but honestly when there’s a blizzard outside and it’s snug and cozy inside, napping was ha...rd to resist haha. We’ve started to unpack things though, and of course I start with tucking away the goods I brought back from China!! Besides the cookware, baskets, etc, I also brought back 鸡头米, a water seed foraged from 太湖 lake, grown in lotus pods, and super fresh and aromatic green/red peppercorns and red peppers from Sichuan. Can’t wait to play with these in the kitchen! whenever I travel I always seem to gravitate towards food souvenirs, which isn’t really a surprise I suppose. in less than two weeks I go to Japan, and I will be intentionally leaving a lot of room for more food stuffs 😝. Do you also bring back food related goods when you travel??
