Welcome to the United Arab Emirates!! This is the start of our new FOOD series from this amazing and diverse country. We are leaving the big city of Dubai to show you the traditional food and culture of the Emirates, starting with a very special family meal, and ending with an awesome desert feast!
BIG thank you to our friends Omar and Salem for their help and hospitality. For our first Emirati family experience and food, we were kindly invited to the guest home of the Royal Al Qasimi family. We ate a delicious Arabic biryani, salads and Khabees (traditional dessert). This food is often what guests will experience when they are invited into a family’s home. After the meal, it is also common to enjoy a cup of Arabic coffee, which was rich with cardamon. The family was also kind enough to show us their vintage car collection, which included the original Land Rover from 1948. Thank you very much for the warm invitation and the wonderful gifts! Next, we explored the town of Ras al-Khaimah to see original architecture, old cafes and experience real Emirati lifestyle.
We visited the oldest cafe in the city, where locals from the mountains and locals from the coast would meet and exchange news and drink tea. We tried their sangini tea and it was very sweet. We also stopped at a traditional juice stall that serves mixed fruit juices with avocado. So refreshing! We then drove into the desert near Sharjah, to visit Omar’s family farm. Along the way we met a camel farmer who offered us tea and Omani halwa.
At Omar’s desert farm, we started cooking Majboos, an Arabic rice dish that is cooked with goat, vegetables, potatoes, dried fruits and tons of spices. The Majboos was then cooked for several hours over wood fire, which worked up a big appetite! The Majboos is served on a massive tray and shared with everyone. The goat was so tender and the rice soaked up all of the flavours of the spices. It was an extremely special experience and we are very grateful.
The MICHELIN Guide makes you travel to Malta to discover the treasures of this island, their products and their producers. Following the launch of the first MICHELIN Guide Malta in February 2020, we take a closer look at this popular destination in the centre of the Mediterranean Sea.
At the crossroads of cultures, the Maltese gastronomic scene is a reflection of its rich past by marrying culinary influences from Italy, Mediterranean countries, North Africa, and also Great Britain – not to mention contemporary trends. “Malta is a very attractive cultural destination with a unique cuisine style which beautifully combines European influences and local traditions”, explained Gwendal POULLENNEC, International Director of the MICHELIN guides.
Malta is an archipelago in the central Mediterranean between Sicily and the North African coast. It’s a nation known for historic sites related to a succession of rulers including the Romans, Moors, Knights of Saint John, French and British. It has numerous fortresses, megalithic temples and the Ħal Saflieni Hypogeum, a subterranean complex of halls and burial chambers dating to circa 4000 B.C.
Truffle hunters and their dogs are combing Croatia’s northwest as the winter hunting season for the delicacy gets under way.
A truffle is the fruiting body of a subterranean ascomycete fungus, predominantly one of the many species of the genus Tuber. In addition to Tuber, many other genera of fungi are classified as truffles including Geopora, Peziza, Choiromyces, Leucangium, and over a hundred others.
Truffles — the non-chocolate kind, sorry — are edible fungi, like mushrooms. … Though multiple species are found worldwide, prestige truffles come from specific areas, much like wine from celebrated regions of Europe and California. Black truffles from France and white truffles from Italy are the two most highly valued.
Today we are in the food Mecca of GAZIANTEP, one of Turkey’s BEST food cities. We are exploring more Turkish street food of Gaziantep in this episode! We start our day eat Yuvalama (soup with yogurt broth, rice balls, chickpeas, lamb and mint oil) for breakfast on the street. We ventured into the old bazaars to see what the traditional vendors are selling. The Coppersmith Bazaar was super interesting and had a traditional feel. After breakfast, it was time to have Gaziantep’s best dessert: BAKLAVA!
Here in the bazaar you can order baklava of any size or kind, but in Gaziantep it is a MUST to eat pistachio baklava. Next we head to a local shop serving a Gaziantep specialty known as Dürüm Nohut (chickpea wrap). Here you can choose all of the fresh ingredients yourself. It is extremely filling, satisfying and healthy. It is also a great vegetarian street food option! Next, we visit the Zeugma Mosaic Museum, which is one of Gaziantep’s top attractions. Zeugma is the name of ancient Gaziantep and these mosaics were discovered all around Gaziantep. It is a great way to spend the afternoon and don’t forget to check out the Gypsy Girl piece!
After the museum, we walk 5 minutes up the street to try the delicious Küşleme (grilled lamb backbone)! This is a rare meat dish, as there isn’t much of this cut of meat on a lamb. It is tender and juicy. Cooked to perfection! It was served with a fresh salad and a few spicy Küşleme pieces. You can also get delicious baklava here as well.
Kanafeh is a traditional Middle Eastern dessert made with shredded filo pastry, or alternatively fine semolina dough, soaked in sweet, sugar-based syrup, and typically layered with cheese, or with other ingredients such as clotted cream or nuts, depending on the region.
