This is not just the Chinese version of cotton candy, it is also an handmade piece of traditional art of spun sugar in the Ancient China. You can find it in Canada, Singapore, Taiwan, Korean, Japan and Hong Kong too. I particularly miss this childhood delicacy as it melts in your mouth :)

Here's a youtube video of how it is made, you can watch from 2:05 onwards:

Paella (Valencian)

Originally uploaded by norecipes

Paella is a Valencian rice dish that originated in its modern form in the mid-19th century near lake Albufera, a lagoon in Valencia, on the east coast of Spain. Valencians, in turn, regard paella as one of their identifying symbols.

There are three widely known types of paella: Valencian paella, seafood paella and mixed paella, but there are many others as well. Valencian paella consists of white rice, green vegetables, meat (rabbit, chicken, duck), land snails, beans and seasoning. Seafood paella replaces meat and snails with seafood and omits beans and green vegetables. Mixed paella is a free-style combination of meat, seafood, vegetables and sometimes beans.

Most paella chefs use calasparra or bomba rice for this dish. Other key ingredients include saffron and olive oil.

Texas Caviar (Texas)

Texas Caviar

A spicy salsa salad mixed of Black-eyed Peas and Black Beans all marinated in a flavourful, fiery mixture. Great with Tortilla Chips or simply bread. The best drinks to go with this Texas food is none other than the cold ice tea ;)
