Day 11 on my tour features Chicken Souse accompanied by Johnny Cake from the Bahamas.

The Caribbean countries all seem to have variations of the same dishes as for their cuisine. This Souse was really interesting. Whole pimento and scotch bonnet chillis gave it a similar taste to jerk chicken.

The Johnny Cake is a simple bread a little like a damper but sweeter and richer due to sugar and butter.


Chicken Pilaf

Khan Plov served with Dolimades and Sumac Salad.

There are hundreds of versions of Plov in Azerbaijan. This recipe is a mash of a few I found. Made from a little chicken, saffron rice, nuts and dried fruits with spices. Baked into a crust of flatbread.

Chicken Pilaf in Lavash Crust

Finished the A’s and now moving onto the B’s.

Kasnocken noodles

Main course: Kasnocken
Dessert: Apfelstrudel

Kasnocken is made from Spaetzle, a little homemade pasta which is cooked a bit like a gnocchi. You make the dough, push it through a ricer into hot water and it is done when it floats. This was then cooked in a caramelised onion and gruyère cheese sauce. Really unusual but really nice.

The Apfelstrudel or apple strudel was great. First time I have ever made filo pastry by hand. You roll it out and hand stretch it until it you can see though it. I ended up with a little tear in it but it was not an issue once it is rolled.
Great meal this one was a win for sure.

Armenian Lahmajoon

Lahmajoon and Armenian Tomato and Cucumber Salad.

Lahmajoon “Armenian Pizza” is basically a little lamb mince mixed in a spicy tomato sauce and cooked on thin pizza dough without cheese.
I really liked it Kas thought it a little too plain. I think it would make great festival snack food. The Armenian Cucumber Tomato Salad provided a crisp refreshing texture.

I have decided that I will leave Australia until last on the global list, and moving onto Austria.
