Eating And Drinking In Slovenia

Eating And Drinking In Slovenia Jun 15th, 2013 at 12:00PM: Sean McLachlan Historic sights, art galleries, beautiful countryside – all these are important in a vacation, but one thing you absolutely can't go without is the food. You have to eat, after all, and a country with poor local cuisine just isn't going to get many repeat visitors. Luckily, Slovenia has a distinct cuisine that takes influences from Slavic traditions and its Austrian and...

Mastering the culinary experience on Benelux trains

Mastering the culinary experience on Benelux trains Jul 29th, 2011 at 8:30AM: Hitting the rails around Europe can be a blast, and I particularly enjoyed it in the so-called "Benelux" countries (Belgium, Netherlands and Luxembourg). The scenery in the Netherlands was a bit thin, but the Belgian towns were incredibly cute, and it was fun to watch the Dutch signs yield to French as we approached the Luxembourg border. And let's face it: any alternative to air travel is a...

U.S. Open: Chomp on a Hotdog

U.S. Open: Chomp on a Hotdog Sep 2nd, 2010 at 8:00AM: Hotdogs and sporting events belong together, so when I went to my first U.S. Open tennis match, I knew I'd have to see what the Arthur Ashe Stadium had to offer. Given a delay caused by matches earlier in the day, the Nadal/Gabashvili pairing started late, so I wasn't able to take my first bite until darkness had descended over Queens. I left my seat and ambled over to the concession as the...

You have to eat sausage in Vienna. You have to.

You have to eat sausage in Vienna. You have to. Mar 22nd, 2010 at 12:00PM: I don't know your life, but I do know you need to eat sausage in Vienna. If you are a vegetarian, I get that, and there are options for you at some of the finer purveyors, so you are included in this. Weiner schnitzel is delicious and all, but it actually originated in Milan. You should probable have a Sacher Torte at some point, but none of this negates the fact that you absolutely must eat...

The supersized English Breakast

The supersized English Breakast Jun 15th, 2009 at 3:00PM: Hungry? You'd better be if you plan to dig into this monster breakfast. This plate makes the famous "Grand Slam" look positively tiny. For a mere 10 Pounds (about 16 Dollars), you get 10 eggs, 10 strips of English bacon, 10 pork sausages, 10 slices of toast, 5 pieces of black pudding (fried blood and sausage), tomatoes, beans and mushrooms. You'll need to be in (or travel to) the UK for it, but...

German food does go beyond schnitzel

German food does go beyond schnitzel Nov 16th, 2007 at 9:00PM: Michelin Guides have been compiling lists and reviews of the best restaurants in the world for over a century. In their latest series of European restaurant guides issued yesterday, restaurants in Germany beat ones in Italy. Yes, the schnitzel beat the lasagna as more German food places (9 in total) got the coveted 3-star Michelin rating than Italian ones (only 5). French food aced the ratings...

Sex Toys and Sausages: A Bad Smuggling Combination

Sep 20th, 2007 at 12:00PM: Butchers in Mannheim, Germany alerted police on Wednesday when a customer speaking broken English asked the shop keepers to hold on to two "Schwartenmagen" sausages he had purchased from them earlier in the day. He told the butchers he was flying to Dubai the following day and asked if they could store his Schwartenmagen in their refrigerator for the night. The butchers became suspicious,...
