The Evolution of my Favourite Food Tastes

Over the years my taste in food has changed based upon my travel experiences and growing maturity.

When I was a kid I loved lammingtons, cakes made from squares of sponge covered in chocolate and dipped in icing sugar. Delicious!! When I became a teenager I fell in love with the hamburger, New Zealand style - meat, tomato, lettuce, mayonnaise, fried egg and tomato sauce.

In my late teens and early twenties it was mashed potato, boiled potato, chipped potatoes, roast potato - I think you get the idea. In my mid to late twenties I travelled in Asia - Hong Kong, Taiwan and Mainland China and started to get a taste for Asian food especially fried rice.

In my 40's I worked in Thailand for a while and acquired a taste for Thai food and Thai is still my favorite ethnic food choice especially Pad Thai with noodles or rice. I still like all the previous dishes from my life story and now that I live in the UK I'm developing a liking for beef and dumplings and stoddies - good Northern fare.

No doubt I will acquire more faves as I age and travel yet more.

In fact I often trace where I have traveled by the food I ate. My father was the same, he remembered every place in New Zealand by the meat pies he had eaten whilst there.
