When I was traveling the world I always learned about new food, then when back home I’d try to recreate it and invite friends and family who have no possibility to travel to taste it.

Now I haven’t had the possibility to travel to new places for the last couple of years, but I wonder if you guys have some tips what I could try to make. Something not too complicated but to some extend exotic.

My tip would be the the Sabich which I tried in Jerusalem in 2019. A flatbread with eggplant, egg, other vegetables and sauces. Sweet and savory.

    None that I’m aware of, but I guess that the same process could be theoretically used for vegs before roasting or deep-frying them? For example, potato fries.

    Speaking on fries, deep-fried yucca is delicious and probably exotic for the OP. Easy, but a bit laborious, as you need to boil them before deep-frying. “Recipe”:

    1. Peel and chop the yucca roots into 2cm thick sticks.
    2. Boil the sticks in plain water, until they’re firm but tender. (Don’t skip this step.)
    3. Let them cool, then deep-fry them in some veg oil. Season to taste (I like using salt, pepper, and bits of bacon.)
