Inspirations from my travels

More than anything, my cooking style has been inspired by the places I've traveled. When Justin and I studied in Rome during Spring 2008, we traveled all across Europe every weekend. Flying on cheap airlines and staying in rinky-dink hostels allowed us some wiggle room in our budgets for delicious food. In fact, we make it our mission to try the traditional foods of every place we go whenever possible.

Here are some stand-outs from our experiences:
Arugula salad with proscuitto, feta, corn and tomatoes, Rome
Asparagus lasagna with b├ęchamel, Rome 

Fried artichokes, Barcelona

Jamon serrano (cured pork) on baguette, Seville

Sepia a la plancha (grilled cuttlefish), Barcelona

Enoteca (wine/tapa store), Spain

The BEST croissants ever, Valencia

Fried egg, potato and bacon sandwich, Malaga

Salt cod croquettes, Almeria

Pulpo a la Gallega (octopus with potatoes), Alicante

Alachofas a la plancha (grilled artichokes), Alicante

Churros con chocolate (donuts), Seville
