Before Sephora and department store counters, women around the world kept themselves beautiful on the outside they way they did on the inside: with good, uncomplicated food. There are inexpensive and effective options right in your pantry. Here are 10 food-related beauty hacks from around the world.

Click here for 10 Food-Related Beauty Hacks from Around the World

For this list, we made it a point to only choose items that you probably already have in your kitchen, or foods that are just one grocery trip away. So while it was so tempting to list international superfoods like African baobab, which has more calcium than two pints of milk, more vitamin C than six oranges, and more iron than red meat — all of which shows in your skin — we figured we’d leave those rarer specialties to be bottled by the beauty experts. You can eat your way to healthy skin (or avoid foods that make your hair look flat) while spending no more money than you already would on food anyway.

We found these 10 items by consulting various sources, including the fantastic blog The Global Girl, Dr. Oz, and international editions of Women’s Health magazine, and made sure we steered clear of beauty myths. Many of these hacks are quite easy and non-time consuming, but if you’re having a major beauty emergency, we recommend reading about what brides would do under pressure.

We mean it when we say you will most likely have all of these ingredients in your kitchen. We are even 100 percent sure you’ll have the one particular tool women in Mexico use for dramatic, voluminous lashes: a teaspoon! You’ve probably assumed you’ll find items like milk, a staple in hand lotions with beauty-enhancing properties that have been celebrated since ancient Egypt, on this list, but you might be surprised at what you can put on your eyes when you kick back for some me time. Hint: it’s not cucumber.

Invite your friends over or take some time to treat yourself. Your journey to natural beauty starts in your kitchen.

Egg Whites (Italy)

Before you scoff at the thought of putting mayonnaise in your hair, know that applying a hair mask of two egg whites (whipped into a frothy mousse) to your hair for 10 minutes will prevent your follicles from drying out and give them a rich, healthy Mediterranean glow. You’ll never again wonder what to do with leftover egg whites when you bake recipes that call for yolks only.

Garlic (Dominican Republic)

The process of using garlic to strengthen your nails is long and smelly, but completely worth it (and the odor will eventually lose the olfactory battle to the strong scent of nail polish). Mince garlic and add it to a bottle of clear nail polish, then let it sit for 7 to 10 days. Add to nails for a natural shine that looks excellent on its own.

Grand Dishes: the new cookbook paying tribute to the recipes (and stories) of grandmas around the world

Mormors, nonnas, abuelas and nanas: nothing beats grandma’s cooking. Discover the fascinating tales and most trusted recipes of older women in Grand Dishes, a new cookbook chronicling the stories of grandmothers from around the world.

From golden-brown pies and macaroni cheese to fruit crumbles and lasagne, we’ve written a lot about comfort food over the past year. For good reason: in these uncertain times, familiar homecooked dishes seem to feed the soul as well as our hungry bellies. So even as we’ve weathered three national lockdowns, those dishes – the edible equivalent of a warm hug – have always provided a little peace of mind.

It goes without saying, of course, that many of the dishes we’ve turned to during the pandemic have been lovingly passed down through the generations. Thanks to signature family recipes, most of us have a favourite dish that we believe no other version can compete with. But one thing everyone can usually agree on is that nothing comes close to the cooking of grandmothers.

Often hailed as the best comfort food in culinary folklore, nana-approved recipes are always a speciality. They carry with them cultures, traditions and priceless pearls of wisdom that you can taste in every bite, even when the grandmas who created the recipes belong to someone else – as Iska Lupton and Anastasia Miari discovered.

In their new cookbook Grand Dishes, the duo compile an anthology of regional recipes and impressive cooking hacks from grandmothers around the world. The culmination of four years of interviews, the book chronicles each grandmother’s fascinating story, alongside valuable experiences and sage advice that could only be reaped from a life well lived.

Get a taste of the grandmothers and their foodie wisdom via the @granddishes Instagram feed. Then read on to meet three extraordinary women, Rajni, Anne and Tinh, and discover their treasured recipes that have stood the test of time.

1. Tandoori Chicken

You can buy pre-mixed Tandoori spices at Indian grocery stores and some large supermarkets (I typically find mine at Cost Plus World Market). A couple teaspoons of this slightly spicy, aromatic spice mix go a long way. Mix the spices with plain yogurt and marinate chicken leg quarters in the mixture (preferably overnight). Then bake in a 400-degree oven for about 35-40 minutes or grill on the barbecue until cooked through and slightly charred. This is an easy, hands-off recipe.

The Best Natural Beauty Secrets From Around the World

Women around the world have their own natural ingredients and local secrets that they swear by. Who better to shed some light than ELLE editors across the globe? In honor of Earth Day, see why Bulgarians swear by rose oil, Chinese love to wash their faces with rice water, and which detoxifying food ELLE Germany's beauty editor loves, plus dozens more insider tips to looking (and feeling) naturally beautiful&mdashand celebrating the planet while doing it.

My go-to natural beauty ingredients: Chamomile and Fullers earth clay. I drink [the chamomile] but also use it as face lotion after cleansing and before applying cream. I also use frozen tea bags on my eyes when they are puffy. I make a mask from the Fuller's earth clay for deep cleaning once every two weeks.

Our country's best beauty secret: Bulgaria is famous for its Rose valleys and I believe that the best natural products for the skin are the ones that come from the region you are living. Rose water [is our secret] for keeping the face clean and moisturized.

Our healthy diet staple: Yogurt is a typical Bulgarian food&mdashthe Bulgaricus lactobacillus bacteria was found in my country a long time ago.

A local tip: The Bulgarian climate is perfect for skin and hair, but pollution in big cities is the greatest problem. When we escape for a week or two, we see the difference!

My go-to natural beauty product: I prefer to mix and match rather than use purely natural products. My favorite is Weleda Wild Rose Oil which I've been using for years.

Our country's best beauty secret: In China, we believe that pearl powder can make our skin look brighter and clear. Also, it is said that the water from cleaning rice can be used to wash your face, because some of the nutrients it contains help resolve the oil and dirt from the skin.

Our healthy diet staple: Vegetables, tremella (an edible white fungus), and edible bird's nests.

A local tip: In Beijing and Shangai, there's definitely air pollution. We wear face masks when it's really bad, and luckily there are more and more skincare products that claim to protect skin from pollution.

My go-to natural beauty ingredient: For an itchy scalp, the best remedy is to wash it with nettles. After gathering nettles from the meadow, boil them in 3-4 liters of water. Once cooled, wash your hair (no need for shampoo).

Our country's best beauty secret: Dalmatian olive oil. My mother is from a [Croatian] island where olives have been cultivated for centuries, and she believes there isn't anything that olive oil can't cure. We use it all over in our beauty regimes&mdashwhen at the beach, we put it on our skin, face, and hair. After 15 minutes we just jump in the Mediterranean and wash off the residue. Voila! There is no better combination for silky skin and healthy hair than olive oil and sea water.

Our healthy diet staple: Since we live near the Mediterranean Sea it's easy for us to eat fresh fish. We have lots of markets with organic food and lots of Croatians have gardens where we cultivate almost everything.

Local tip: We don't have that many problems with the weather. But in every household you will find our favorite panacea balm, an original Croatian cream called Melem. It's the cure for all kinds of skin ailments.

My go-to natural beauty ingredient: Organic herbal teas. Elderflower and stinging nettle herb are both invigorating, while peppermint and Melissa are both comforting.

Our country's best beauty secret: In Germany, Kneipp treatments&mdashtreading in cold water&mdashare very popular. They are good for improving the immune system and activating blood circulation.

Our healthy diet staple: All kinds of local vegetables and fruits. Asparagus season is starting now, and it's one of my favorite vegetables because of its draining and detoxifying effect.

Local tip: We are very lucky to live in a country where we don't have an extreme climate or major pollution. I just try to practice outdoor sports in all kinds of weather, and go running three times a week. I never [get] a cold!

My go-to natural beauty ingredients: I love using cucumber slices on my eyes to cool them down. We also have a few brands that sell distilled herbal waters in a spray format&mdashrose water, lavender water&mdashwhich make lovely face mists.

Our country's best beauty secret: This is quite Indian&mdashwe get sandalwood in powder form. You mix this with any liquid&mdashwater, milk, yogurt, or rose water&mdashfor a quick cooling mask. It clears out pores and soothes inflamed skin.

Our healthy diet staple: We add more spices to our foods, and they're good for digestion and keep your metabolism going.

A local tip: The hair oiling ritual is probably one that almost every Indian woman follows, whether she's from the city or elsewhere. My grandmother used to oil her hair and wash it every day. Of course, that's a bit much, but I do try and do it once a week. I use a mix of coconut, almond, and olive oils.

My go-to natural beauty ingredients: Essential oils and bath salts made of freeze-dried salts from the Dead Sea. Rose essential oil makes your skin brighter and softer, and also revitalizes a female hormone. Salts have the great effect of inducing perspiration and keeping your body warm. I enjoy a Thalassotherapy bath with plenty of salts. A hot lemon bath also works.

Our country's best beauty secret: In Japan, we use clay masks for the scalp as well as the face, because it gently absorbs facial dirt.

Our healthy diet staple: Soy products like natto and tofu, which are typical Japanese foods. Soy contains ample amounts of isoflavone, yet it is low calories and rich in protein. Many Japanese foods are also fermented, so they can properly supplement you with enzymes.

A local tip: UV rays are stronger in Japan than in the West, so I protect my skin from dryness and damage throughout the year with UV cut cream and lots of moisturizing.

My go-to natural beauty ingredient: Cucumber. I often have a cucumber massage when my skin gets dry. It's very simple: Slice cucumber thin, and put it on your clean face. It makes the skin so moisturized.

Our country's best beauty secret: I've often used water from washing rice to wash my face or take a bath. Wash the rice until the water turns milky and then drain it out. Wash again, and use the second water [to wash your face or bathe]. It makes skin smoother, and rice is a daily food in Korea so its easy to get and good for the environment.

Our healthy diet staple: Ginseng. In terms of oriental medicine, my physiological body type is "SOEUM," which means I have a cold body. The ginseng helps keep my body warm. The ginseng helps to keep my body warm. There are many ways to eat ginseng but the best way is eating raw. Ginseng is bitter to the taste and very expensive so I eat a bit by bit. I also eat ginseng with honey like a dipping sauce when I'm feeling low.

A local tip: Fine dust [blows in] from China. Cleansing is very important. I also wipe my face and neck with a cotton pad soaked in toner after deep cleansing.

My go-to natural beauty ingredient: Turmeric. It not only has amazing healing properties, but it's a great beauty product. I've discovered this DIY turmeric face mask: Mix flour, turmeric, honey, and milk to make a paste apply it in a thin layer to your face let dry for 20 minutes and rinse in the shower.

Our country's best beauty secrets: We have a beautiful seaside coast that heals the soul, wonderful weather that gives us vitamin D (and a beautiful glow!), and delicious Portuguese red wines from the Alentejo and Douro regions that make us happy!

Our healthy diet staple: The Mediterranean diet: garlic, olive oil, oranges, apples, lots of greens, and the most wonderful fish.

A local tip: We have an old (and healthy) habit to start a meal with a vegetable soup.

My go-to natural beauty ingredient: I use pure shea butter as a body moisturizer in the winter. Frazer Parfum, a local beauty company, sources it from Mali. It is beautiful and natural, extremely moisturizing, and smells of the earth.

Our country's best beauty secret: We have an outdoor culture due to our beautiful weather, and exercise is very much part of our daily life. A walk or hike through nature helps me feel healthy and active which is very much part of feeling beautiful.

Our healthy diet staple: Seasonal food is the best. Depending on what is available at the time of year, my everyday diet consists of avocado, biltong (air-dried beef), rooibos tea, unsalted nuts, fresh grapes, cape salmon, ostrich fillets, and a variety of green vegetables.

A local tip: Sun damage is high on the list [of climate complaints]&mdashI use potent vitamin C/E serums for anti-oxidant protection followed by a high sunscreen of SPF50 all year long. I also wear SPF on my body in summer and only ever go to the beach from 4pm onwards&mdashwith umbrellas and hats!

My go-to natural beauty ingredient: Coconut oil. "Like so many people as of late, I have become addicted," says Megan. "I use it for my hair and skin and have started oil pulling [for teeth whitening]." "I put it all over my face before bed," concurs Justine. "I also put it on my arms after exfoliating as I suffer from a mild case of Keratosis Pilaris. I find that it really reduces its appearance."

Our country's best beauty secret: It's not exactly unique to the US, but both editors swear by drinking water as the foundation for any beauty regime.

Our healthy diet staple: "Kale!" says Megan. Justine tries to stick to seasonal produce.

A local tip: Combat that city air. "I think the amount of pore-clogging dirt is unique to NYC," says Justine. "I try to take off all my makeup when I get home, and use a Dr. Jart pore protector on my T-zone." Megan agrees: "Living in the city, my skin is exposed to lots of elements, including pollution. This makes it even more dire that I wash my face every night. I use oil to get everything off my face before I cleanse, exfoliate two times a week, and try to get a facial every couple months."

3. Arroz a Banda

Paella is a rice dish that originated in Valencia, Spain and is the dish that most non-Spaniards associate with the country. Although 18th century paella recipes called for water vole, a type of rodent, as one of the main ingredients, over time paella has become a pricey dish with the addition of expensive ingredients like saffron, duck, and shrimp. Penny-pinching Spanish cooks substitute garden snails as the main protein in homemade paella to bring the cost of ingredients down, but paella is still kind of a pain to cook, which is why it&rsquos often the most expensive menu item at seafood restaurants.

Arroz a banda is a staple rice dish of Spanish fishermen from Alicante to Murcia. With its crunchy crust and intense fishy flavor, arroz a banda is paella's scrappy, country cousin. Arroz a banda literally means &ldquorice apart&rdquo in Catalan, and the dish was developed by frugal fisherman to squeeze a second dish out of their catch of the day.

Most traditional arroz a banda recipes start with boiling a fish (or fish parts) in water with spices to make a broth. Once the broth is made, the fish is removed and set aside as the main course. Rice and vegetables are then added to the fish broth and cooked down to make arroz a banda. Since yummy fish broth can be made from cheap fish or from fish heads, fish bones, and shrimp shells, arroz a banda falls into the budget category even with the addition of saffron. If you have a fish market nearby, negotiate a cheap price with your local fishmonger for the heads and bones. If I call in advance, the fish guy at my grocery store will save the day&rsquos bones for me, for free.

10 easy and clever weight loss tips from around the world

Losing weight is no cakewalk. There's a lot that needs to be done from following a healthy and clean diet to exercising daily. In fact, what a lot of us don't know is that some of the most touted weight loss secrets aren't just secrets for a reason-they are all derived from deep rooted traditions and practiced as a way of life and years over, came to be adapted by people all over the world.

Here are 10 doable and smart tricks from around the world that weight watchers can try.

02 /11 ​Thailand: Eat spicy

Thai food is among the spiciest foods in the world. Spicy food is said to raise your metabolism and slow down your eating with that little zing. When you eat too fast, by the time your body signals it's full, you have already overeaten. Eating slowly is a good way to lose weight and eating spicy food can help you do this.

03 /11 ​Poland: Eat home-cooked meal more often

To avoid wastage of money and to keep health intact, Poles prefer eating at home more often. They spend only 5 per cent of their money on eating out as compared to Canadians who spend about 30 per cent of their income on eating out.

04 /11 ​Germany: Eat breakfast

Around 75 per cent of Germans eat their breakfast daily, which includes whole-grain cereals, bread and fruits. Experts have been advising people not to skip breakfast for years now. Skipping breakfast makes you indulge in high-calorie foods later. The easiest change to control binge eating is by starting your day right.

05 /11 ​United Kingdom: Eat small portions

British people prefer eating smaller portions at home and even at restaurants. As per nutritionists, supersizing a meal helps supersize you.

06 /11 ​France: Do not eat too fast

The French are known for having leisurely family meals. As per studies, on an average 92 per cent of French families dine together at night. These meals typically last for 33 minutes on the weekdays and 43 minutes on the weekends. It might sound illogical but longer meals actually encourage less eating. It takes around 20 minutes from the time you are full for your brain to realise that you are full. Thus, taking more time to eat means you are actually eating less.

07 /11 ​India: Ayurvedic concotions

Ayurveda, the ancient Indian medical system based on natural and holistic approach for good physical and mental health.

Ayurveda offers many easy concotions that promise to promote weight loss. These concoctions do not have any side effects and promote overall health.

Our Indian dishes are a combo of all flavours tastes and emotions and in my view it can be considered as the world’s best dish and even the Chinese food more in India is tastier than China

Chinese food in India is better than in China?
Oh please.Speaking as someone who’ve never been to China.I really don’t feel surprised an indian would say this.

But I think you had better come to my country (IRAN) and meet persian foods. That kebab you noticed from Armenia is our original and national food. But there are alot of other delicious foods like fava beans with best tasty iranian rice including fried and grilled piece of lamb’s muscle.

You’re right.Iranian local foods can attract a lot of tourists.

As with Indonesia, I can not enter Iran with my passport. But maybe in the future. I know Persian foods are supposed to be amazing.

Regev maybe you can make indonesian food yourself… Its easy :)

You’re making me hungry! By the way, ever came across The Netherlands? If you didn’t it might be a cool idea for you to check out!

I used to see a chick from Amsterdam a few years ago. I was there for a couple of weeks. All I remember is your raw fish with pickles, and some pancake-like thing they sell in the small villages.

U should try Indian butter chicken with Nan… One of the delicious foods I’ve ever had !!

naw, India is best for its vegetarian delights, too much for a meat-lover to handle :) lol

Visit Korea and you will have some of the best food ever…

Just returned from Korea, added a photo.

This food is looking bad I don’t like it you have not taste the flavour of Pakistani food

I can’t enter Pakistan with my Israeli passport.

Enter India with your Israeli passport.. then visit mumbai , Lucknow and Hyderabad you will get the same food as in pakistan..

I was just talking to a friend about how food enriches the experience of travel and how I wish I could taste the food of every country (its actually how I found this blog). I was wondering how you get to go so many places. Do you just backpack it?

I don’t technically backpack (I don’t have a bag), but I do travel for the sake of travel and exploration. Skim through the site a little bit, you’ll see the whole philosophy behind.

I love this blog! it’s interesting. I like Mexican empanadas and Baby shrimps with veggies and rice. Yum! thanks for sharing.

If one day you stumble upon Bangladesh (pronounced Bung-glu-dish, for all of you weirdoes who think it’s pronounced Bang-gla-desh), you should definitely stop and try our amazing cuisine. Bangladesh has the best of food. Dinner to dessert. You haven’t lived until you’ve tried beef or chicken biryani! Our food is the best, Bangladesh is a must visit for anyone who has a good taste in food. Ha, I could make a ten page report on how good it is, but, really, I guess I should cut this short. :/ -Sammie Wilde (lol, you already see my name on the top… Well, you get to see it again!)

What’s your page sammie? Really interested in your cuisine.

I might sound really stupid here, but I thought Bangladesh was a part of India when I was younger XD. Anyway, that sounds interesting. Are you from Bangladesh? Also, I was a little put off by your ‘”(…) for all of you weirdos who think it’s pronounced Bang-gla-desh”‘ comment. Not all of us know Bangladesh as well as you do, and I know that’s probably why you threw that out there for reference, but the ‘weirdoes’ part was rather curt. I live in the US, and we pronounce it like Bang-gla-desh, so I was a little insulted by that comment. Anyway, have a nice day, and maybe I’ll check out some stuff about Bangladesh in the future )!

Could you add more different country dishes over time? This list is phenomenal, love the photos

you forgot my favourite…..butter chicken.

What a great and interesting blog , its such a great way of get to know and differents cultures , congrats! miss . We were surprised about the differents kind of food around the world , we personally would not eat some of those dishes , but other we absolutlly exquisite! , You shold came to chile and taste HUMITAS , PASTEL DE CHOCLOS AND MORE

I’d love to come to Chile one day.
gracias chicas

Hi there, great blog- one question- in the Costa Rica photo, do you remember what the puree was?
Thank you

I don’t think there was any puree there.

Italy . and I luv empanadas from Mexico mmm gud!! . I would luv to try all around the world foods that r very delicious .

Northern Ireland is a land of very fresh well cooked meats and veg (served piping hot)
Their soda, wheaten and potato breads are simply stunning which gives the (Farmers) Irish breakfast its wonderful taste, served alongside beef sausage, eggs, tomato and mushrooms, with lots of hot tea to drink, sets you up contentedly for the rest of the day

You just made me really wanna come to Northern Ireland.

come to the place of land-whales and try….. fried chicken? grilled cheese? oooh tomato soup and grilled cheese…. mmmm….. my hungarian uncle makes really good chicken paprikash… good. oh and we have americanized pizza that is sorta good? come have pie. theres lots of pie here.

you should try the new zealand homemade hangi its better than any thing

The Country of Land-Whales? Gosh, it makes me so sad that of all the countries you visited, the US is the only one you blatantly insulted. Not all of us are whales, and not all of our food is unhealthy. I know we have a bad reputation, but I really wish people wouldn’t generalize a nation of 319 million people. :-(

I love America, but statistics don’t lie.

U should try Indian couse they are mouth watering

But you can get them in England? So why do I have to travel the world to eat?

They all sound good! But you really should come to Turkey and try our food. They are all tasty! You can eat fish in half bread while sitting on the coast side and watching around and the fishers. You can find foods as ‘iskender’ or tartan soup, they are all very tasty! It would be a good try )

you should come to England. It’s not amazing but you can try fish and chips XD and stuff…

I actually tried fish and chips in London. It was great, and the only reason t’s not listed is because I couldn’t find the photo.

I am suprised Indonesian food is not on this list. It is famous for being one of the worlds tastiest foods.

There’s no photo from Indonesia because I can not enter the country with my passport. They don’t allow Israelis in.

Wow, I don’t know Indonesia is enough famous.

All foods of different countries enhance my appetite. I really like your collections. Keep it up and don’t forget to add Pakistani Indian and Iranian dishes in your list these are also very yummy and unique in its taste.

yummmmm we are reaserching 4 school

What was the most delicious food out of all these?

That’s a very tough question.

you should have made food from africa and madagascar

Just added some from Seychelles and Ethiopia. Madagascar next!

What about west Africa. You haven’t tried any country there.

You must taste my Bagna Cauda in Argentina but with italians origins. Its delicius.
I invite you to Jesús María, the place with the best “asado” of the world!!

Brother you must visit India. It offers you a vast variety in food. If you are fascinated about sea food then you must try out the home cooked food of the konkan side of india. You must also visit the karim’s restaurant (old one) in Delhi .

It’s on my future list, man. Everyone says it’s amazing over there.

do not forget south Indian dishes!specially Hyderabadi biryani.

How rendang (Indonesia)? This is the most delicious cuisine in the world according to CNN. Rendang is in first place as the most delicious cuisines in the world. Nasi Goreng followed, also from Indonesia.

Hey, Regeve. Thanks for sharing the best dish in Bangkok. Hope to see you soon.

You’ve earned it. I’ll come see you on my next visit.

Wow! It’s great that the love of food or cuisine is universal and bind us. That’s great because no racism. Now we know all the countries in the world have variety of splendid and delicious food.

Can’t enter Bangladesh with my passport. Send some food photos though!

Next time please try to get the recipes of those mouthwatering things

The only thing you tried in the U.S was donuts im glad you have a wide look on everything

I tried lots of different things there, but the only things I could actually feel are “local foods” were the burgers and the donuts. The burgers were amazing, but I didn’t take a photo.

The different foods are well .how the condition to eat cold or hot . which kind are eat

Regev, what’s the best dish in the world in your opinion and experience?

Tough question. I have a deep appreciation for Middle Eastern and Japanese foods, and despite my dietary recommendations, i’ve always had a weakness for well-made Italian pizzas.

How can I purchase some of the pictures?

Feel free to use them free of charge, just make sure you give credit linking back to this site.

To whom it concerns: almost all Muslim countries have blocked people with Israeli passports to enter them. However, some countries like Jordan and Indonesia (Yes, check Wikipedia for this.) allow Israelis to apply visas, albeit it being a very difficult process. So check the visa requirements of the author’s passport before you post any country suggestions.

That’s right. It’s actually easy for us to go into Jordan. Indonesia.. not so much. I don’t know any Israeli who’s ever been to Indonesia without a foreign passport.

Any one tested ragi ball with nati colli sambar?

Donuts on this list?? Listing donuts gets to show you that whoever came up with this list needs to sober up and try this again!

Actually in Iran we have alot of delicious foods..I suggest you to try them?

I can not enter Iran, unfortunately.

HALLO. Wheres Germany. Try these German foods: Hamburger, Apfelstrudel, Eintopf, Kasespatzl, Kartoffelpuffer, Schnitzel, and one of themost famous food in Germany BRATWURTS(SAUSAGES)n dont 4get also German Doner Kebap. ALSO DID U KNOW DAT Beer is considered a FOOD in Bavaria (a state in Southern Germany) :)) ich liebe dich.

Sir, u not mention a single indian food, as a popular food. Realy i shocked.

Iranian Food was delicious. You Should to Try them Such as Abgoosht? Kale pache? Ghormeh sabzi? Kabab and … thats very good.

Ok, Doughnauts are good and all, but dude. We ain’t all fat. In fact I live in California and over hear majority of us are health nuts. You ever hear of raw food? Raw food are only plant based and are not cooked. Not the tastiest, but really healthy. We are known to put Avacado on almost everything. Burgers, sushi, salad, etc… By the way I’m fifteen, and I care a lot about what I eat. So does the rest of my family and most of my friends, but none of my friends are fat. Some slightly chubby though. There is something about the US that you missed. There are a variety of states, fifty of them to be exact. Not all of them have the same food. There’s raw food here in Cali, Soul food in the south, Bison somewhere in the middle, and I don’t know what in the East. (I’m a westerner) One more thing. It’s not our fault that we get so… BIG. It’s the manufacturers, when shopping for food here make sure you read labels and try not to eat fast food to much. EXPECIALY KFC! Never eat there… You don’t want to know. America’s not all bad though, just stick to the smaller restraints you’ll be fine. Hope I didn’t scare you away.

Sorry, one last thing. Try Puerto Rico, they have awesome food. Probably similar to Costa Rica, but still. If not for the food, go for the bioluminescence tour. It’s on a kayak group trip at night, and it’s beautiful. Saw it two summers ago when I went on a trip with my mother and step-dad. Both native to the island. I’m half Puerto Rican and half… Mixture of German, Russian, Polish, and a little Israeli way far back in my family tree.

sushi is not an American traditional food.. :) if ya wanna argue about it please message my email. for your information Bison is not a food in the middle of the United States. So, I think you need to get your facts VERY STRAIGHT before opening your mouth. Oh , and KFC is very delicious you weirdo.

i like japanese fodod the most

you didn’t get to try authentic Singapore food, the super spicy food that you tried is actually a popular mala dish from China which is popular but not a bit related to Singapore

Isn’t Singapore a pure mixture of Malaysian/Chinese/Indonesian people anyway?

Singapore is a mixing pot of different cultures, there are many dishes that are brought here by immigrants in the late 1800s and early 1900s, or “invented” here from the fusion of cultures. These food that are commonly found in hawker centers are what people consider to be the “classic” Singapore local food.

The food in the pic above (ma la xiang guo) originates from Sichuan /Chongqing in China, brought over by Chinese workers from China in the 2000s. It’s very tasty and now can be commonly found here, but it’s generally not considered to be “local food”. Early Chinese immigrants came from the South-eastern part of China (fujian, guangzhou area) which has very different food culture from the southwest or north. My grandfather would have never eaten that dish in his whole life.

All the dishes you have posted online look really mouth watering. Like you, I too would like to travel to visit different places and try exotic food. If you ever come to India you will find that almost every state has a unique/ special food dish which is not available anywhere in any other state. South Indian food is amazing along with those of Lucknow, Delhi, Kolkata just to name a few.


iranian food is amazing,just taste iranian food one time then you love it

Yeah That Yellow Rice with Zebeeb tastes Sooo Good and Delicious.

I really enjoyed to see this photos connected with countries..i loved most of it and i would love to test all of these.. i have tested a Asian Dish in New York called “Masala Dhosa” was awesome with mix of many tests.. i would put in number one and it looks too good so when you get chance upload the picture of it as well..

Masala Dosa is nothing compared to mughlai cuisine, different curries, etc, etc.

Have you visited the island of Guam? It is a U.S. Territory, located in the Pacific Ocean. You need to try the shrimp or chicken kelaguen. Delicious!

You have travel around the world? Cool, i never travel anywhere outside my country

u should come to Nigeria and taste our Egusi soup . yummy yummy

tuwo miyan kuka n taushe with frra da nono n man shanu so delicious meal.

You missed Indian cuisine. It’s nothing like you’ve tasted before. India and Israel are allies. You are always welcome here.

West Virginia foods are delicious too!

I wish that you came to Jordan and eat Makloppa,-very tasty-,and of course there is a lot of different Arab country which distinguished with it’s local cuisine,never miss such trip.and you will be always more than welcome .

Well, there are more delicious authentic Filipino food out here in my country like Lechong Manok (Roast Chicken), Lechong Baboy (Roast Pork), Sinigang (tamarind base soup), Adobo (Either chicken or pork stewed in a combination of soy sauce and vinegar), If you like squid, we have this Calamares (Fried Squid, street food), Inihaw na bangus/tilapia (grilled milkfish/tilapia) and many more. I’ve also tried Chinese, and I like Dumpling, Siomai and the rice. And also Nasi Goreng, but i dont know what country is that from. But i have to say, Italian Food is one of my favorites.

I am quite disappointed in the way you misrepresent America.

You missed roti chanai from Malaysia! You have got to check it out.

ya..what a different kinds of food…..U just came yo India ..there is lot of delicious food varies from kashmir to kanya kumari……so please taste our indian foods.

You should visit India. It is a blend of various food cuisines. You should taste various foods of India like Tamilian sambar, Keralas coconut halwa, Andhras pickles, Goas fish curry, Gujarats panner curry, Hyderabadi dum biryani, Mumbais vada pav, Kolkata fish curry, Bhopals food, Rajasthans royal food, Lucknow kebab, kashmirs cuisine, Delhi gol gappa and many more
As of me it would take a lifetime for anyone to taste all of India’s vast and delicious cuisine……

How could u miss the Indian cuisine. It is one of the best cuisine in the world. You should taste the Tamilian sambar, Kerala’s coconut halwa, Andhra’s mango pickle, Hyderabadi dum biryani, Goa’s fish cuisine, Mumbai’s vada pav, Lucknow’s kebab, Delhi’s gol gappa, Gujarat’s paneer curry, Rajasthan’s royal food, Bengal’s fish curry, Kashmir’s cuisine and many more which i can’t state here. As of me, it would take a lifetime for a person to taste the whole of India’s delicious food. But , u should only eat form good restaurants. Thank you and welcome to my homeland.

The “Singaporean dish” you had isn’t actually Singaporean. It’s from China… more specifically the Sze Chuan Province. It’s just that it has been imported to Singapore, like most things.

I would like to suggest China food… Cuz my every customer from overseas feel impressing when they try it. Just too much kinds of foods. And it’s no enough time for you to try all of them in life, really too much. Welcome. : )

Donuts? What a pos… of all the things on this list you really couldnt do any better than donuts for the US. Hard to believe.. more likely youre just a hater. Either that or just a flat out moron. Land whales.. what a tool.

Yea I agree. So many amzing dishes then donuts for USA. I mean prime rib in the USA is amazing.

Israeli Hommous. Really.. LOL

Please do not leave chopsticks sticking into food/bowl. It’s making me cringe.

About tasty food….. India is number 1 because world’s tasty food available here

I suggest you to try indian food. Especially Rajasthan Gujarati bengali south indian and many more….. I am sure you will love our parathas, pani puri, naan, paneer (cottage cheese) lassi idly dosa etc etc… If you come to india do visit Rajasthan Gujarat Kolkata Hyderabad Mumbai. You will fall in love with our food. I bet you will have a very good time in india. Do try parathas roshgulla panipuri biryani and south indian food. I am a vegetarian so i keep talking about these. You can also have best non vegetarian dishes. Plz cone to india.

All foods is very very yummy n very very testy.

RENDANG no 1 FOOD in world

Malaysian food isn’t bad too you try air one am sure u wills forget your car keys

Try Indian food, especially wada pav. )

hey u mental shut up…indian food tastes gud….but your stomach will die by the next day

nigeria black soup is the best of all soup

You have to know that kebab or kabab is national dish of Iran and the word itself is Persian and I have no idea why you didn’t mention it in this list.

Hey Reggie! What in your opinion is the most delicious food in the world?

Are those the the bests food in the world you tried or just foods you randomly found traveling?

Just tried different foods around the world and documented it with my camera. None of them is necessarily “best”.

Here in the Philippines, taste is diverse. You should try exploring more of the food here.. It’s actually exemplary and scrumptious like the Lechon (Roasted Pig), Kinilaw na Isda (Raw Fish), Bulalo (Beef Stew) and many more!

My gf is filipino and we were discussing, along with my brother, how disgusting (or not from her point of view) this balut ‘delicacy’ is not more than 2 hours ago.

I couldn’t eat that thing I don’t think unless it was mashed up in a McFlurry. :-D

My friends told me that it is best eaten with beer. I really have not tried eating it.

Love these different types of food! Thanks for the photos. What in your opinion was the best food in the world?

I would love to have the freedom to try food around the world too.

Hello there,
I am Emily Trammell and I had a few questions for you if you didn’t mind, see I am in this class called STEAM which means SCIENCE, TECHNOLOGY, ENGINEERING, ARTS, MATH and see we pick any subject that we are passionate about and see I am super passionate about food. I was wondering if maybe you could tell me more about your food encounters and we even make our very own food in the class so if you maybe had any ideas that would be great and it seem like you’ve been every where and I was thinking that maybe we could exchange emails and maybe you could lend me hand if so could you shoot me an email at : [email protected]
Thank you so much for your inspiration!
Emily Trammell

I love this blog, it is superb!
I add few suggestions for all food lovers to taste some famous Pakistani foods, such as: Mutton Biryani, Haleem, Shami Kebab, Gol gapy, Samosa, Pakora, Jalebi & Kashmiri Chai. These are my favs. Many of those are high in calories but one can have it on cheat days.

Kebab is for iran no armenia , ghorme sabzi is best food in the world

Come to Vietnam there are many speacial dishes :)

I guess the guy who had written this article have never tasted indian foods :(

I love Indian foods, but I haven’t been to India (yet).

then to be fair sir you should have made titled it to acknowledge that this list was based on countires youve visited only (i suggest you hurry to india and experience vegetarianism that will make you never want to eat meat again) (also, eat Undhiyo from Gujarat)

I always miss the US when I’m not there, because it has some of the healthiest, freshest and most beautiful food on the planet. It is way ahead of other counties when it comes to veganism, and is actually way more creative when it comes to making healthy food appealing to those that would otherwise not even give a damn. It’s always amazing to see how open most are, collectively. You will for instance find meat eaters get super super excited about the vegan meal they’re planning for the night. Wholefoods, Cafe Gratitude, Sprout…Gosh the list of natural markets is endless, and few things compare in freshness to an authentic American Farmers market. Kind of sad that you’re operating on stereotypes when it comes to the US. Traveling, when it takes root in your Soul, usually causes us to grow beyond stereotypes.

As for other countries with amazing food, Australia is incredible. Some of the best food you will ever eat, I lived there for many years. It’s also a bonus that you can easily find food from every single country in the world there, and it’s super authentic.

sure but your forgetting India, the land of the vegetarians (the only non-vegan thing we eat is dairy, which we do not harm cows by getting milk from them unlike your precious USA) may i remind you of tofurkey? hilariously stupid, pls do not make more jokes…americans do not know how to be a vegan…you guys dont know what protein is even…rice and broccoli? thats what a white vegan told me he ate …nope, not protein tyvm

Indonesian have Rendang. You Know?

I liked your way to cook. Maybe if you consider visit to Brasil next time…I would appreciate your blog more .

you should come to iran if you can

Visit Iran and try Iranian food specially kebab and then talk about the most delicious food in the world….

Indeed FOOD The Very tasty Once, BECAUSE I NEVER give it a try, but it would be nice if you sample food from asia like this. read 10 Best Delicious Foods From Asian Countries Around The World

this hellped my daughter alot thank you

I missed South America and some others African Countries.

for having a different experience about taste and food, its better have a travel to IRAN

XD Land-whales? I was born in the US but I am Chinese-American (My passport is American because I live there.). Chinese food is really good, it’s just that sometimes in China they serve some very…. EXOTIC food if you know what I mean. Some of the food on this list looked fine, but unfortunately I have just about the weakest stomach out there (If you need a clarification, mildly spicy food means burning hot in my vocabulary, I’m sometimes afraid to eat seafood, if meat turns out red when I eat it I feel sick, and I have never tried lamb and I’m too afraid to, so I am probably not your definition of an adventurous eater). When I saw the rabbit leg on your list I freaked out and died because RABBITS ARE MY FAVORITE ANIMALS! THEY’RE SO FREAKING ADORABLE UWAAAAAAHHH! Sorry. The lamb made me nervous, and at first I thought the stuffed squid was a giant tarantula but I was mildly relieved when I realized it wasn’t, and the beef heart and beef liver made me fear for my safety (hugs self: I JUST READ ON THIS OTHER MORBID LIST THAT SOMETIMES PEOPLE ATE HUMAN PLASENTRAS! EWWW! Ugh ugh gross waah there are cannibals among us!) because they are both vital organs. I’ve heard of cooked snails before but I kind of thought it was something like, I dunno, COOKIES so when I read the description I was utterly horrified. The armadillo thing made me just about pass out (on the bed, but still), and I have read about Balut before in other blogs/websites but it never ceases to disturb me. But everything else looked good/okay! Great blog, can’t wait till you update some more stuff (maybe Chinese, if you can get into China! Most of the food is good, noodles, Peking duck, baozi, etc. etc., but some is quite disturbing (Shark fin soup, MONKEY BRAINS, etc.)!

im an american and im only 457 pounds im not a land whale.

Salt, Fat, Acid, Heat — Samin Nosrat

(Image: appetiteforbooks)

Winner of numerous honours including the prestigious 2018 James Beard Award in the General category, this New York Times best-seller is considered to be one of the best to have hit the shelves (and the kitchens) in recent years. Nosrat successfully breaks down culinary flavours into four elements: salt, fat, acid and heat. According to her, salt enhances flavour, fat amplifies it, acid balances it, and heat eventually determines the texture of the food itself.

Through the book, Nosrat talks about why understanding the elements are essential to cooking and explains how a combination of these can help create perfect dishes. There are hand-drawn illustrations (by Wendy MacNaughton) that simplify much of the science of flavours. Among more than 100 recipes from around the world are ways to make perfectly caramelised roast vegetables, flaky pastry dough and tender braised meats.

The book’s success led to a 2018 adaptation into a Netflix documentary of the same name. Nosrat is seen travelling to four different places for experiences of each of the elements — Japan for salt, Italy for fat, Mexico’s Yucatán peninsula for acid, and her own home in California for heat.
