I was inspired to make this post by my lunch of today…
Well, let me explain: you don’t like FPSs… You like old style adventure games… so you’re a game connoisseur… so you probably like good things in life. Good music, good movies, good books, good wine… good food.
We discussed movies in another thread. Let’s discuss food.
I would like to focus, here, on very STRANGE gourmet foods.
I’ll start with a less known and quite strange italian food:
Actually, if you say “mostarda”, in Italy, you’re not referring to mustard. But to this peculiar food.
Fruit Mustard is a particular sweetish mustard made with candied fruit.
It is eaten by a minority of italian people, especially in the northern regions (most people don’t like it or simply don’t eat it regularly).
That’s because this food has a very strange taste that is unusual in italian cuisine (and in western cuisine in general). It’s a sweet and sour taste, or better, a sweet and spicy taste which is much more common in asian food, for example.
Eating it is quite a shocking experience: if nobody tells you in advance, its aspect would suggest a sweet, fruity taste… But of the fruits you have only the flavors and the aftertaste. It has a strong and spicy mustard taste!
It was invented ad a garnishment for stewed meats, but i love it with seasoned cheeses and good red wines…
Have you have ever tried it? Would any non-italian user comment his experience?
Or, if you haven’t tried it: did I make you curious and willing to try it?
