I have reconciled that I don’t think the Bali trip will be happening in 2010. But that doesn’t mean I can’t have a taste of Bali right here in Gville! Today I bought a new Bali cookbook. It has over 100 recipes by one of Bali’s most famous chefs. It’s kind of like a travel guide with recipes…good thing I have an imagination….I can pretend to be sitting on a white sand beach, sipping a fruity drink, eating on a banana leaf. How about some snails in spicy broth or pork belly barbecued in banana leaves. The recipes are full of exotic ingredients from unique spices to cooking techniques, I am not sure I will be able to replicate. But I can give it a shot. In the mean time, I’ll dream of a vaca in an exotic land.
