Food and senses / Comida y sentidos

Food and senses / Comida y sentidos

( ESPAÑOL mas abajo )

Food makes your senses explode. This is used in a figurative way…or that is what I thought until friday night!

Friday night our Worldcom partner Tom invited us for dinner in an excellent restaurant called Nahm. We all took the Menu Degustation or testing menu and had the change to try exquisite Thai cuisine..some dishes were hot, others not so much. Excellent…but when we go to desserts…oh boy! One of them was called “durian”. Before they brought it, they told us that its a fruit that smells very strong but the insight is sweet vanilla. Smell is so strong that its forbidden to take it in planes or subways. And then they brought it, cooked with sticky rice.. I just put it under my nose and..I thought I was going to faint right there. Oh God! It smell like rotten food or putrified water mixed with skunks and dead animals. But as my mother used to say, eating is part of culture so I took a bite and it was sweet and tasty…but I couldn’t even leave the spoon on my plate! I dare you to look it up in the internet: Durian.

Thanks Tom, it was a great dinner, great conversation and a once in a lifetime culinary experience!

La comida hace explotar los sentidos. Esta frase pensaba que se usaba de manera figurativa…hasta que la comprobe el viernes 8 por la noche!

Nuestro partner de Worldcom en Bangkok nos invitó a cenar en un excelente restaurante llamado Nahm. Pedimos el menu degustacion para probar platos exquisitos de comida thai. Algunos platos eran muy picantes..otros no. Excelente..pero cuando llegamos a los postres..ay madre! Uno de ellos se llamaba “durian”. Antes de que lo sirvieran nos explicaron que era una fruta con un olor muy fuerte pero que dentro era dulce vainilla. El olor es tan fuerte que esta prohibido llevarlo en avion o en metro. Y entones lo trajeron..cocinado con arroz glutinoso. Puse el plato bajo mi nariz y casi me desmayo ahi mismo!! Dios mio!! Que asco!! Olia a animales muertos en agua putrefacta, no exagero!. Pero como mi madre solia decir que comer es cultura, me atrevi a tomar una cucharada..y si, en la boca era dulce y cremoso..pero luego no pude ni dejar la cuchara en el plato. Os animo a que busqueis la definicion en internet: Durian!!

Gracias Tom! Fue una cena excelente, gran conversacion y una experiencia culinaria única!
