What is the Food Like?

A common question we have been asked regarding Albania is “What is the Food like?”. Answer: Delicious and cheap. The food is Meditterranean with some Greek, Italian and Turkish influences. Most of the produce in the markets is seasonal and deliciously fresh. Our favourite items to buy right now are carrots and oranges. The carrots remind me of eating my Granny’s carrots on the farm and the oranges are so juicy and sweet. We hear that May/June brings cherries and watermelon. We can’t wait. Another interesting fact about the food here is that there is little money for pesticides so most is organic and chemical free!

Please post any other questions you might have and we will do our best to answer them.

In September 2010, Dan and I received working visas for the United Kingdom. We sold our condo, quit our jobs and packed our bags to move to London. This blog (though a few months late) is designed to update our friends and family back home about where we are and what we are up to.
