I'm sitting here on a cold February day, thinking back on August and the wonderful foods I enjoyed at the Festival of Nations. Sponsored each year by the International Institute of St. Louis.
I wasn't able to sample all of the 30 plus countries' food booths, but I did either eat or photograph samples of the following:
1) Afganistan, 2) Argentina, 3) Bosnia, 4) Burma, 5) Eritrea, 6) Ethopia, 7) Haiti, 8) Iran, 9) Nigeria, 10) Peru, & 11) Vietnam.
So for today, to help me remember, I think I'll just post some wonderful food pictures. No descriptions, no country named. I'll make this a game and let you try to guess which picture represents which country's food booth. Some of them are give-aways because of other things showing up in the pictures. Some are going to be very hard.
Just match the country number above with the food picture letter below. Post your guess. The winner is invited to St. Louis to join me next August to sample the great food for yourself.
Fun game, huh?
OK, so here's the answers:
A - Peru
C- Iran (actually Kurdish)
So, Candi & Girasoli -- you tie. The good news is our we have two guest rooms. Plenty of room for both of you to take a trip to St. Louis in August. If you can stand the weather, that is. :grin:
