{please visit Ceramica Botanica here}

One of the greatest treasures I have ever picked up from my wanderlust adventures has been a love for new and exciting foods. There is nothing like presenting your friends and loved ones with a meal that reminds you of your favorite vacation and there is no better way to honor the places you’ve visited than by cooking the local food. Whether your travels take you to India or Austin, Thailand or Baton Rouge, a good meal is the one thing that unites all of us. I, for one, know that when cooking a special meal for anyone (myself included) I bust out any and all fancy serving dishes and trays I can find. Such occasions call for fancy, don’t you think?

Ceramica Botanica is the kind of shop you add to your wishlists and registries. Susan Rodriguez handcrafts gorgeous and functional pottery that is destined to land smack in the middle of all your celebrations. Rodriguez’ natural ability to create stunning original graphics blended with the clean, simple lines of her pottery is rivaled only by the chic sophistication of her line. These are the kinds of pieces you want to put on your table. The Lime Triangles ceramic serving tray and Goldenrod ceramic serving tray are exactly the dishes I need for my next dinner party. Now it’s just time to travel through my cookbooks and pick a destination!

    Every time I go to the Magic Kingdom in Disney World I have to have the cheeseburger at Cosmic Ray’s starlight cafe in Tomorrowland! So good!

    I had the best burger and beergarita at a hole in the wall place in Lake Havasu, AZ when my husband and I went there for our honeymoon.

    A  mountain restaurant on the border of the regions of Lazio and Campania in Italy – way up in the Apennines – serves the most amazing polenta I’ve ever had. They make it in a massive cauldron-like pot each day, serve it with a bunch of different sauces – tomato,  sausage, boar (!) ragu – and that, combined with the cool air up that high in the mountains is just incredible.

    so many meals come to mind, but the one that jumps out is a simple pasta and goat cheese dish in Helsinki which began my ongoing intense love affair with all things goat cheese!

    I’ve eaten so much great food while traveling, since food is so important to me. The best one was nothing fancy by far. In Virgina we caught our own oysters out of a lake and cooked some, left some raw, and enjoyed a huge feast of oysters. I’ve rarely been to the East Coast, but that memory sums it up for me. Can’t wait to go back someday!

    Breakfast in Germany is very different from breakfast in the US. That was always my favorite meal of the day there.

    One of the most surprising things I enjoyed was poolside in Puerto Vallarta, the bartender chipped off a piece of coconut, squeezed lime on top and added a shot of hot sauce.  The combo of sweet, tangy and spicy was so good!

    My family hosted an exchange student from Brazil when I was on high school.  After we had both graduated from high school, my family and I went to Sao Paulo to stay with her family.  On that trip I ate prawns.  I have never before, nor one time since liked prawns, but on east the coast of Brazil live the best prawns that I’ve ever tasted.
