    "If you want to experience the essence of a foreign destination on a short visit," says Elyse Pasquale, "then nothing beats sampling the local food."

    She should know. The American journalist and food-blogger is speaking at the end of a journey that has seen her traverse Belgium, Holland, France and the UK in under 24 hours.

    This whistle-stop European tour is part of Pasquale's Foodie-international mission to consume 100 unique meals in 100 countries.

    So far she has eaten in a grand total of 62 different nations and visited all corners of the globe, from India to Ireland and Mozambique to Mexico.

    "Food is an entirely sensory experience. You can touch it, you can smell it, you can taste it. What better way is there to learn about a place you've never been before," she asks.

    I found the horseshoe more daunting than either duck head
    or cod sperm. I actually only managed a pony shoe at Ritz's:
    more than enough food, and my dairy allotment for the month.

    Hmm, I've tried the fried scorpion in China, I've had the dog soup and the live squid in SKorea, goat's head in Nigeria. Cod sperm sounds rather, uhm, disgusting. And wrong. So very wrong.
