My culinary adventure so far this year...

I love food. If you know me or follow me on instagram you will be more than aware of this fact and back at the start of the year when I was setting myself a few new goals it seemed to make sense that one of them should involve food. And it did... 

'I love food. I want to cook something new or go for a meal somewhere new each month.'

Now we're nearing the end of the year (how on earth did that happen?), I have had chance to refelct on the many many foody adventures I have experienced and have selected the eleven that sum up the best of the new foods I have sampled throughout 2013.

My trip to Norway introduced me to Reindeer stew - super tasty!

Reminiscing of travelling days in South America and cooking our own Llama meat

I was brave enough to try making my own Hollandaise sauce for Eggs Benedict

Another new meat for this month, Zebra at the Geldart, Cambridge

Not as exotic but the first time I discovered Marmite Crisps - WIN!

Summer time and Carribean food meant Goat Curry at Turtle Bay, Nottingham

A work trip to London provided the chance for me to try Dim Sum at Ping Pong

A new recipe that involved a whole wheel of Reblochon cheese! Tartiflette.

Home grown plums in Canada and a lesson in making plum Bread and Butter pudding!

I tried my hand at making pasties filled with Chilli Con Carne, Cheese and Guacamole

A fun filled evening with friends making our own Sushi!

So there you have it, nearly a whole year of culinary adventures including a mix of trying new things in my kitchen at home and sampling new things off menus from various new restaurants! There have been many more food shaped experiences enjoyed throughout the year but far too many photographs to share in one go with you... besides I still have December to go yet so it won't be too long before I'm back with more food snaps!

Maybe I can combine my New Place and New Food for 2013 during my mini adventure away from home next weekend! Pop back soon to find out... until then I bid you a foodie farewell!
