Coming across food finds makes TBW very happy especially if they are not easy to get.
Tabbouleh, tabouleh or tabouli is a Levantine (countries bordering on the eastern Mediterranean Sea from Turkey to Egypt) salad traditionally made of bulgur (cracked wheat grain), tomato, cucumber, finely chopped parsley, mint, onion, garlic and seasoned with olive oil, lemon juice and salt. In the present generation of instant food, finding tabbouleh in a box almost ready to eat is a treat.
Bibingka (Philippine native rice cake cooked over heated coals topped with cheese, salted egg or left alone). This version which was a gift from the Dagelets was a beautiful cross between a fluffy mamon (light buttery cake) and a pancake. Judging from the phone number on the box, this must be made in the province, probably Lipa Batangas where Brenda hails from.
Mirabell’s Salzburger Mozarttaler. Heavenly chocolates from Austria gifted by an Austrian friend. Layers of delectable goodness in each chocolate. Rich, dark chocolate followed by light and dark praline cream and a center of fine marzipan laden with pistachio nuts. Deliriously good!
Anything hard to get is usually treasured and more appreciated. Be it career, money, love or food!
