Food for Thought

I love food. Sometimes a little much! Food for Thought By Jan Beaumont ©? Each country has food that they're known for Their own local dish you might say Some are delicious and some a bit strange And some I'd just think 'oh no way!' The Chinese of course have their dumplings They love their pad thai in Bangkok In Jamaica there's salt fish and ackee rice too And most people like food from a wok. They enjoy suckling pig in Korea There are burgers in old USA There's a prawn on the barbie in Aussie And Italians eat pizza each day. I have tried tasty frog's legs in Paris But I didn't enjoy escargot A tandoori chicken in Delhi's just fine And black pudding in Scotland's a go! I really enjoy a Greek salad A hot bowl of pho in Saigon Yakatori's a great way to eat in Japan About food I could go on and on. Of course there's roast beef in old Blighty Consumed with a great Yorkshire pud And smothered in gravy on Sundays Could anything else be that good? I love a nice tasty Welsh rarebit In Canada they eat poutine We live in one huge worldwide kitchen I'm sure that you know what I mean. But now we're back home in New Zealand With our hangi, our pies, L&P, Vogels bread and our great kiwi icecream There is no place that I'd rather be!

I am surprised at the lack of comments as this should be POTD! Nothing quite like solid research! Aloha! Rico
