Japanese and Thai curries, veggie sushi, pasta with pesto, southern fried chicken with white pepper gravy and occasionally bacon-egg-cheese croissant sandwiches. My suitcase is always filled with foodstuffs when I come back from visiting family. More food and spices than clothes lol.

Are you making your pesto with pine nuts? If so, are you getting them here, where and at what price? If not, are you using some other nut and do you have a good recipe for pine nut free pesto?

No pine nuts to be found in Iquitos! I bring large jars of pesto from Costco when I come back from visiting family. Also make tallarín verde using basil, garlic, milk, cheese and a couple of saltines. Makes a creamy pesto.

I prepared a traditional English Hot Pot, with home made pickled beetroot for my inlaws on the 28th July for independence day.
Well, it was foreign to them. :D

Do you have a recipe for making pickled beetroot that you could share with us?
The store bought stuff just isn't the same.
