On my travels I have had the fortune to sample many different types of worldly cuisine and I have rarely been left disappointed. From the pizzas and pastas of my italy ski holidays to the raw fish of Japan, each country has its own specialty dishes and more often than not, these dishes are the best that the country has to offer.
When it comes to Eastern Europe, there is one ingredient that seems ever-present in the many varied dishes and that is meat. Whether it be the sausages of Germany and Prague, or the goulash and beef stews of Hungary and Slovenia, it seems that a meal is not complete without plenty of meat.
This suits me fine as I love meat. I am one of those people who can’t understand vegetarians. I don’t have a problem with them, or their life choices, I just cant understand them. To me, they are missing out on some epic cuisine. The beef stews of Eastern Europe, especially Hungary are utterly amazing, as are the steaks I sampled in Berlin.
I honestly think it is worth travelling to the Eastern parts of Europe not only for the fantastic scenery, friendly people and cheap beer, but for the brilliant food as well. There is a misconception that still lingers today, that Eastern Europe is a war torn deserted wasteland full of poverty and that is simply not the case. Sure there are some countries that are still struggling, but many of them have gotten over any issues they had in the past and are great places to visit.
If one thing is true about Eastern Europeans, it is that they certainly eat well. I can’t imagine that anyone goes very hungry at all over there, not with the prices of the food and the huge portions you get. Go and check these amazing countries out and find yourself in food heaven.
