Eating and Drinking in Eastern Europe

When I'm travelling I'm constantly taking pictures of what I'm eating. When my meal is put in front of me my first instinct is always that I want to remember it. Now I'm home, I cook most nights for my family and I'm really enjoying being able to cook again; my kitchen in Korea was so tiny and it was difficult going shopping as a lot of ingredients either weren't available, or were really expensive. 

I've really enjoyed putting this post together, and remembering all the wonderful food I ate while making my way home through Europe. Looking at these pictures, I am transported to the city I was in, the moment Mary and I had sat down to eat, and usually took in our surroundings to people watch and just enjoy the limited time we had to experience each place. Food in Eastern Europe was really good, and generally pretty cheap, and for me so fantastic to get back to European flavours and dishes. Definitely a gastronomic good time!
