We are going from the country setting of Kerry's blog, to more of a city setting from the next blogger. Besides that, I suspect that these photos serve as clues enough about the identity of the next eG foodblogger, who will begin Monday, 25 September. Cheers!

What better eG foodblog itinerary could there be than to travel from NYC to Europe?


It's a pretty long walk, a lot of it uphill, so I'll give you a few days to contemplate... What's the exact final destination? :laugh:

We will arrive on Monday, 2 October, after the very exciting current tour of Brooklyn.


We've had some requests to visit this locale. I'm sure you'll agree that it's been worth waiting for.

There are some similarities between the next eG foodblog and the current one.


This is where some cooking will be done.


And this is some of the equipment that will be used.

'Nuf said.

...'Cept that Judith's lovely blog will end late Sunday night, and the next one will begin early Monday morning.

First (cropped) image is the final of four spalliere panels that recount the story of Nastagio degli Onesti from The Decameron. The moralizing tale advises women to give in to the desires of suitors lest they spend all of eternity chased naked by hounds until, exhausted, their hearts are torn out of their bodies, alive. Botticelli's workshop produced the cycle for a wedding that tied the Pucci & Bini families in the late 15th century, most likely arranged by Lorenzo de Medici.

Connection? I give up unless it's Ore who also trained in Jesu. This part had to be edited because I intially guessed that the blogger was someone Italian getting married or someone in Italy responsible for preparing a wedding banquet. (Terre Madre's later in the month.) HOWEVER, look at the electrical outlet. The blog recording some form of communal cooking at a large event will be set in North America, right? In Italy, at least, you'd need round holes that accept two prongs.

Also note the white gloves on the guy (?) to the right and the long, full skirt in foreground, left, of the third image. There are Renaissance Fairs going on still at this time of year...

I thought of Ore, too, but the Italian painting threw me off from considering him. Very astute of you to notice the shapes of the electrical outlets, Pontormo!

I'm sorry the preview of the next blog is delayed. It's my bad, not that of the next blogger, who begins Monday morning. This eG foodblog takes us completely back to the USA.

This is a door:


Let's pretend it's a stargate and take a look beyond:


Tune in on Monday morning to enjoy more culinary exploration and discoveries. Those of you who like to see the appearance of kids in our eG foodblogs will especially enjoy this blog.

Well, if it's Minnesota or Wisconsin, the photo sure wasn't taken in the last week or two! We're no longer wearing t-shirts, and the grass is littered with dead leaves!

When the next eG foodblog starts, we will have the unusual occurence of a full day of overlap. This will enable the next blogger to share a special occasion with us. It starts this Sunday, the 22nd. Danielle's will continue through Sunday, as well. I'm sure you will stay tuned to Danielle's, welcome the start of another, and enjoy them both.

One of the things that the two of these blogs have in common is that they both come from great food cities. We wondered if this photo would be too obvious a hint. Who can guess the city, even if not the blogger?

      After ...
      ... I headed to the airport and flew Nanning, China to Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon), Vietnam. The meal on board the plane is here.
      We landed two hours later and after the usual immigration nonsense  I was met by an old friend and her husband. They had helped me book me a hotel and took me there. The couple are Chinese but live and work in HCMC. They dropped me off at the hotel, made sure I was settled in and took off to attend to some business (they work in the jewellery business, importing and exporting between China and Vietnam), but returned in the evening to take me to dinner.
      We went here.

      The place,  Làng Nướng Nam Bộ,  is huge and, on a Friday evening was packed. My friends ordered - they both speak fluent Vietnamese whereas mine is limited to the basics. I just looked around.



      Each table was supplied with

      Tissues and two dips. One was fish sauce and the other seemed to be shrimp paste with sesame.

      A bag of crackers, some pickled gherkins or similar and a dip of salt and chilli

      Steamed Chicken with Banana Hearts

      Vietnamese Fried Spring Rolls - accompanied by a mixed selection of raw greens, which are served with almost everything.

      Grilled Venison with Grilled Okra

      Hotpot protein - squid, shrimp, clams, beef

      Hotpot Vegetables - including both banana hearts and shoots.
      Everything was good. Especially the venison. I hadn't expected okra, but it seems to be popular. Every market I visited had some, but I'm getting ahead of myself. More to come.

      Hi everybody! I'm Jake, I'm 26 and from the United Kingdom. I've recently left a career in science teaching and I really hope to pursue my true passion, food writing by becoming either a recipe developer, a food journalist, or both! I've launched my website today so thought it was a good time to get active in some online forums and say hello! I look forward to meeting and interacting with you all ❤️

      Hello again from south of the equator!  As you may or may not have heard (because the international news media isn't really giving the situation much coverage), Ecuador is in the grip of a major social protest movement.  This started on October 1, when fuel subsidies in the country were abruptly struck causing the prices of gasoline and diesel to more than double overnight.  Transport and heavy haulage unions immediately went on strike, and blocked the main roads of the cities with their vehicles in protest.  The indigenous movements of the central Sierra, beginning in my province, Tungurahua, joined the strike on October 2, and the President quickly declared a State of Emergency that restricts movement, freedom of the press, and freedom association.  The indigenous took over the road blockades on October 3, cutting the cities off from the world; Ambato became an island overnight.
      It is now October 8, one week into the blockades.  Shortages in the fresh markets and supermarkets began on Sunday, as people realized that we were in for a long-haul of protest and possibly an overthrow of the sitting government.  Ecuador's indigenous have a long history of deposing governments in this way, and it's not a fast process.
      I'll be blogging informally throughout the National Strike, to document how the inevitable food shortages affect the city and my own table. 
      These first pictures are from Sunday, October 6.  In the Mercado Mayorista, a place I've always taken you along to when I've blogged from Ambato, the cement floors of the naves are visible in places where they have never, in my experience, been exposed.  The fresh corn nave is all but abandoned - this is because all of the corn in the city's stock has been sold.  I'll remind you: a nave in this market is about a thousand square metres of space.  This is also missing the big trucks that come to trade fresh grains in the parking lot, because they couldn't make it through the roadblocks.  Most of the Mayorista is in the same situation - stocks are selling off fast.

      The supermarkets are even more dire.  The meat coolers are completely empty, and the produce shelves are diminishing quickly.

      @Alleguede and I are in the lounge at Pearson awaiting our flight to Vegas for the IBIE (International Baking Industry Exhibition).
      I got the usually bomb sniffing swab done on my electronics - @Alleguede got the 3rd degree at customs. Anyone know what a carnet is? I believe I got that lecture the last time.

      Made myself a little cocktail, Maker's Mark, Grand Marnier, vintage port. I've had better! 

      Not a lot of choices to eat since it's rather late (not that earlier would have helped) - they also have pasta salad, Italian Wedding soup, Cream of mushroom soup, corn chips and salsa. There appear to be some cookies there as well. I'm trying to low carb as much as possible so I'm avoiding most of it.

      Host's note: the initial title of this thread was "Swarvin' in ???"  as a teaser.  Once the destination was identified as Newfoundland, the title was changed to reflect this.  The initial comments were based on the ??? In the title.
      And we'll soon be off.......culinary adventures to follow.
