12. Best New Food ‘09

Q: You're now in love with Lebanese food and you didn't even know what it was in January of this year.

This year was not one for huge food adventures. There was good food, and interesting food but nothing new. I would like to write about mushy peas but that was last year.

The one outstanding food was not new but a rediscovery. A friend came back from the U.K. with Marmite ! Whereupon I spent the next several weeks eating Marmite (yeast extract) and cheese on toast - with tea.

I used to eat this in the Netherlands and probably had not had it for 10 years. They say it’s an acquired taste but I liked it from day one.
