Posted on: 23 October 2015 by Anna Murray
We know many of you have a passion for travel, but have you ever thought deeper into your passion? Why do you enjoy travel? It is to escape the world you’re always in? Is it to try new experiences and immerse yourself in other cultures? Or is it to indulge in numerous mouth watering international dishes from across the globe?
Why not all of the above? Today we bring you some of the world’s most traditional autumn dishes from all over the world. It is our hope that you will be able to expand your palates this season while you set out for adventures.
Pumpkin Pie is quite traditional for North American’s throughout the United States and Canada. This sweet dessert is made with mashed pumpkin, autumn spices (cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves and ginger) and condensed milk. Served warm or chilled with a dollop of whipped cream and/or ice cream.
Pumpkin soup can also be served both hot or cold and is typically blended in a light broth with a few savoury autumn spices. Though this dish dates back to the prisoners of war and men in the Vietnam War, it is now a common dish enjoyed by many Americans and Europeans (Kurbis Soup in Germany).
This is a typical Canadian dish that your grandmas always used to prepare for you during every holiday occasion. Apple crumble is best served piping hot with an ice-cold scoop of French vanilla ice cream! Apple picking is a common event to do with the family during autumn holidays and weekends and when the pickings are plentiful, apple crisp usually soon follows.
Roasted Squash with Brown Sugar and Cinnamon
The roasted squash dish is quite popularly found all over the world today, often across Europe and North America. The most common fruit to cook with is the butternut squash due to its sweet and nutty aroma. This dish historically dates back as a South African meal, but it is quite common in North America, New Zealand and Australia today.
Goat Cheese, Walnut and Spinach Salad
Goat cheese, walnut and spinach salad is another universal autumn dish that has the new era to thank for its existence. Though spinach salad has been around for decades, the idea of adding a salty and nutty flavour to the salad has only recently been introduced universally. Many people enjoy this salad topped with balsamic vinaigrette, dried cranberries and green apple slices.
