My Parents Visited: Mexican Shakshouka

2018 in Food

The best eats of 2018 How, in one year, 10 countries and roughly 1095 meals does one begin to summarise a year of food? As an exchange student in France, most of that food has been cheap, supermarket-sourced meals, with the occasional cheeky pastry or […]
