I Tried Durian From 3 Different Southeast Asian Countries So You Don’t Have To

Published

on

“Durian is a metaphor for how funky or possibly gross Southeast Asian cuisine can be,” said Chawadee Nualkhair, an author and food writer based in Bangkok. “It’s a way to illustrate foreignness … a shorthand for wacky.”

That’s the view from the West. But it’s difficult to overstate how silly these videos look from East and Southeast Asia. In fact, their comments sections are often filled with durian lovers from countries such as Malaysia or Singapore expressing annoyance.

Across Asia, durian is actually selling like never before. Long a coveted fruit, the durian has in recent years become the focus of a full-on, food craze.

Salmon Sushi: The Norwegian Invention That Encaptured Japan

Salmon is a relatively new addition to the sushi menu making its rise to popularity remarkable, a story that is both an allegory of shifting taste trends across Japanese demographics and the opening of one of Japan’s most iconic cuisines, sushi, to the world.

Look at the menu of any sushi shop in Japan and you will almost certainly see salmon: fatty, tender and bright orange. And for good reason, in a 2017 survey by the seafood company Maruha Nichiro, the fish was found to be the most popular neta (topping) for the sixth year in a row, ranked far higher than the more traditional tuna and halibut.

French Cheese: Is It Really as Good as They Say?

Published

on

Short answer: Yes.

Long answer: Check out this incredible cheese display in a French market. Can I have one of each, please?

French traditional cheese makers on Wednesday urged governments and lawmakers to protect raw milk cheese products as an increasing number of industrial cheeses made out of pasteurized milk hit markets worldwide.

As France was celebrating its national “Cheese Day”, raw milk cheese manufacturers organised several events across France to praise health benefits of raw milk on the human body.

“The real issue for Western societies is our immune systems,” Veronique Richez-Lerouge, with local cheese association “Fromages de terroirs” told Reuters.

“Why do people suffer food intolerance? Why are people more and more resistant to antibiotics? It is because they do not eat enough living foods and notably raw milk or cheese made from raw milk.”

Carlos Yescas, a program director for the US-based Oldways Cheese Coalition, said he believed France’s cheeses were at risk as small farmers and their ancestral know-how were slowly disappearing in the wake of competition brought on by large dairy companies using pasteurized milk.

For 1 Dollar, What Can You Eat in Vietnam?

Here’s a helpful guide on what to eat in Vietnam, most of which can be enjoyed just about any time of the day. While most are familiar with pho or spring rolls, there’s a wide range of Vietnamese dishes only available in certain regions so be sure to try them out during your visit.

Vietnamese food is known to be both healthy and robust in flavour, thanks its generous combination of fresh herbs and greens, paired with rice, noodles, seafood, pork and beef. While many cities such as Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City offer plenty of fine-dining venues and five-star hotel restaurants decked out in extravagant settings, some of the best (and most authentic) Vietnamese delicacies are actually found at roadside eateries, vibrant street markets, and humble-looking restaurants.
