Europe has years of culinary tradition and many quality dishes and ingredients. European cuisine is very rich. For example, the fantastic Mediterranean Diet of the South or the famous North smoked fish. We will examine the essential dishes, accompanied by photographs of the Australian agency Whybin/TBWA , who made a photographic work to associate countries with their typical food (from the perspective of an Australian).
Since immemorial time, French cuisine has an excellent reputation worldwide. Cheeses, pâtés, and refinement make it one of the best cuisines in the world. For wines, red Bordeaux or Burgundy white wines are the most popular.
Greece, as a Mediterranean country, is known for its fresh food, salads, cheese and feta pastries and yogurt sauces. For wines, Samos are very good.
Italian culinary richness is infinite. Starting with the quality of pasta, meat and fish, and desserts like tiramisu or mascarpone. Its major wine regions are Piedmont, Lombardy and Tuscany.
Portugal has high quality fish. This is the case of grilled sardines or cod. The vinho verde is typical and extraordinary.
Germany is the queen of sausages. They make it in all its forms. Other specialties such as roast accompanied by coleslaw are very typical dishes. Baden, Mosel and Pfalz are among the most popular wines, many of them produced in the Rhine.
Austria is a land of fairy tales. And as such, it offers homemade cakes and the famous Sacher cake you can not miss. Do not miss either the Wiener Schnitzel and boiled meat. Kremstal is a country wine of exceptional quality.
