In our Ramadan episode of How We Eat, we found out about haleem - a Pakistani dish (check it out here, it was really tasty!

It got us thinking.... What local dish/cuisine do you love that relatively few people know about in this country? For me it's a Ghanian dish called waakye -

Sichuan dry fried beans 😋 - we live in China and they're on virtually all the local menus. Sooooo good!

I like Chinese sweet soups like red bean with coconut milk and tangerine peel or mango with condensed milk and Pomelo.

Aw man, I LOVE waakye! And red red! And kelewele. All also Ghanaian. Wish I could cook them myself. It’s been too long...

A French cake called gateau Basque - a buttery almondy cake which is filled with a creamy custard and some form of dried or preserved fruit like cherries

Phoenix claws - a Chinese chicken feet dish. Tastes great, sounds awful.
Locally - chitterlings ( pigs intestines) fried and served with vinegar and pepper.
Bath chaps ( cured pig cheeks - like mini York hams)
Thunder and lightning -bread spread with clotted cream and black treacle
Slider -cider infused with the sloes left over from sloe gin

Cullen Skink, a creamy soup made with haddock and potatoes. Perhaps it's quite well known though.

Chiperones in Spain. Little squid.
