I have been to many countries, and one of the biggest differences in eating culture/habits/cuicine is how salad is served.
Salad as a main or separate dish, this is understandable. You can have Caesare Salad for lunch for example.
But, how is salad served, as accompany for the main dish, are differences between countries.
There are three courses in most countries : appetizer; main dish, which includes protein and salad and then dessert.
However, there are exceptions, as well. I was amazed to see that in Portugal rice and potato (with some meat/fish) were served on the same plate .. In addition to that we visited a restaurant with a very generous cook in Malta 🙂 french fries, boiled potato, couscous, pasta were on the same plate. And some bread of course. and a LOT of meat 🙂 Continue reading “6 Simple Salad to accompany the main dish”
Never gift for Estonian womans red Dianthus…
Today is International Woman Day. Have you heard about this? Necessary and nice holiday with “red background”but with good idea. Celebrate and recognize all woman, not only mothers.
During soviet times we do not celebrated Mothers day, was only Woman day on 8th of the March. Soviet Union was terrible, but about feminism and women rights was everything perfect. Woman was welder,tractor driver,cosmonaut. And not only career at work. Woman took care about household and children. Clothes were washed by hand and shops were not full of prepared products…:)
In Estonia we have a saying. Woman must be able to feed man and 6 children:)
So, Viva women!
But what about red Dianthus… These times were not very large choice of cut flowers. Just and mostly only expensive roses and cheaper dianthuses.
