    Lo Siento. Second As Farce

    This evening, it was Italy and England, by means of good-bye.

    After much deliberation, England were represented by pork & fennel sausage rolls:

    and Ligurian Linguini al pesto, patate e fagiolini (potato and green beans with pasta!)

    Ivory Coast for afternoon tea. Financiers au chocolat

    [​IMG]

    (I saw this listed as an ivorian recipe and Abidjan is apparently famous for patisserie and it's one of the leading global chocolate producers. Not entirely convinced of its provenance though! )

    Number 27 - Colombia - Arepas con pollo adobado.
    Arepas are basically ricotta/mozzarella, fine cornmeal (masa) and water, shaped into thickish pancakes, then cooked on a griddle.
    The pollo adobado is cooked chicken, shredded, then fried again in sunflower oil, paprika (I went with smoked), turmeric & oregano.

    (careful not to make them too thick... I did following instructions and they were a bit stodgier than I would've liked)

    They are, their version of empanadas is good too (the same mix wrapped around a filling, then deep fried)

    Number 28 - Holland - Dutch Apple Pie

    (obviously this would be much better in the Autumn, but spices, brandy and that gave it plenty of flavour)

    grubby local tapir wanker

    I just clicked on this thread today and Lo Siento’s food just got me big time hungry. <Applauds>. So I looked in the fridge and, in a reverse, decided to cook up something and then decide which match it would be. I ended up with hummus dip with warm pitta bread vs tofu black bean pasties. So would that be Greece vs Brighton & Hove Albion?

    Hummus is Cypriot apparently. Greek are very insistent on this point...

    Number 29 (France) Baba au Rhum: a little ball of dough soaked in a mixture of apple syrup and rum, on top of an apple compot. (traditionally this has a ridged top, but I don't have the mould so...)

    rum  baba.jpg

    Number 30 (Nigeria) Suya Kebabs: Thin strips of beef (I used braising steak which I'd tenderised by beating it up) covered in peanut oil, then rubbed with a mixture of peanut butter, ginger & cayenne, a crumbled up beef stock cube and salt)
