50 Foods #34: Apple Pie

Origin: All over the world
Date: 18th century
Type: Fruit in a pastry crust

America’s national treasure!

Although the apple originated in Central Asia, it can be argued that the apple pie had not originated from there. Some argued that the apple pie first had its roots in Europe. However, variations of the apple pie exist all around the world, my favorite being the French style call tarte tatin. 

Would I eat/drink it?: I. LOVE. APPLE. PIE!!

50 Foods #33: Vindaloo

Origin: Goa
Date: 16th century
Type: Hot curry

Goa, India has a very rich Portuguese history, something I learned while watching the Bollywood film, Josh.


After watching this movie, I ended up researching Goa and I delved deep into their colorful past including the Portuguese explorer Vasco de Gama who landed in Calicut (South of Goa) in 1498 (I think this was mentioned in the film) and their food especially vindaloo, a very spicy dish that asks for a lot of chilies!

Indian food is enjoyed globally. It won’t hurt to stop by your local Indian restaurant and try their vindaloo.

Would I eat/drink it?: I LOVE INDIAN FOOD!! The spicier, the better. 😋

50 Foods #28: Biltong

Origin: South Africa
Date: 17th century
Type: Cured meat

I’ve never heard of biltong until this book, so I had no idea what it was. Biltong is a form of cured meat that is cured with salt and vinegar which is then air-dried so it lasts a lifetime. Various meats such as game and beef are used to produce it. 

Biltong is related to beef jerky given that they are both dried and spiced meats.

Would I eat it?: Eh!
