You are both making me hungry! Julien, there is no need to be embarraed. That's the point of this whole thread, to find out more about different cultures. What better way than through food.
Pesto is made of basil, olive oil, and garlic (and whatever else you might want to put in ). it is delicious spread on a baguette, or you can mix it throuygh pasta.
Julien, being french do you encounter a lot of Vietnamese food?
Gallofa, that picture looks delicious! No wonder why you Spaniards need a siesta! It can't be an every day meal. You would need your arteries drained every month! It looks yummy though! I notice that there is no tomato in the recipe. I thought tomato was used in Spanish cooking a lot?
