Debeli has always been fascinated with Thai cuisine, ever since he started to work professionally. At the beginning of his cooking career he was working with a Thai chef who infected him with soy sauce. Like literally, because Debeli ended in the ER after his body couldn’t digest high levels of MSG or monosodium glutamate (a flavor enhancer with an umami taste), so he dehydrated and had to be fed with a tube).
Remember the movie?
Former capital of the Kingdom of Siam is some 50 miles from Bangkok so that makes it a perfect one day trip.
Our three weeks in Thailand started, and ended in Bangkok.
Eating in Rome was so decadent, that the old Romans would be ashamed. This whole trip was purely about the food. About finding the best and the traditional dishes. On our list there was cacio e pepe, suppli, trippa alla romana and so much more.
Rome may be cliché but actually is all you need. It’s art and food. What more do you need, right?
A typical Norwegian thing is brunost or brown cheese!
One of my favorite museums in Oslo is definitely the Norwegian Museum of Cultural History at Bygdøy peninsula.
You probably already know about Julebord from my last year’s text, so this year I present you something different.
Debeli is a huge lover and worshiper of both whiskey and beer, so I was thinking of visiting either Jameson distillery or Guinness brewery while in Dublin. What I didn’t know then was that the production of Jameson has been transferred to Cork and that Guinness storehouse is more about selling the merchandise than showing you the real process of brewing. However, what we did at the end, it turned out to be even better!
