My Food Journey By Nick

My First Country
Mexico
The history of the burrito- No ones knows how the burrito was invented. One stories is that a man riding a donkey would used a big homemade flour tortilla to keep his food warm for his customers.
The diet of a working class mexican includes staple food such as corn, wheat tortillas, beans, rice, tomatoes, chili peppers and chorizo.
In my burrito I put 1 tbsp olive oil ¼ onion, 1 tomato, 1 garlic clove, ½ tsp chilli powder, 100g minced beef, 1 tsp tomato paste, 1 tsp fresh coriander, and a pinch of salt & pepper for the beef filling. For the refried beans I put 1 tbsp olive oil, 1 garlic clove, ¼ tsp ground cumin, and 70g red kidney beans. And for assembling the burrito I used 2 flour tortillas, 50g cheddar cheese, and shredded lettuce.
If I were to remake my burrito I would get rid of the refried beans, because I didn't really like the refried beans. I would also add more cheese on the surface and inside because I felt that there wasn't enough cheese. However the beef was very good and the heat from the chilli was just right.
My Second Country
Vietnam
The diet of a regular Vietnamese worker includes rice that's been made into diffrent forms . For example,the Vietnamese makes rice noodles and rice wraps out of rice. They eat noodles like Po, and use the rice wraps to make Goi Cuon.
In my Vietnamese goi cuon i put 2 mint leaves, 3 fresh prawns, 35g of vermicelli noodles, 2 small lettuce leaves, 1/2 a carrot, 1 coriander stem, 1 thai basil stem, and 2 long chives. for the dripping sauce i put 1 garlic clove, 1/2 red chilli, 1cm root ginger, 1 dsp caster sugar, 2 tbsp fish sauce, and 4 tbsp of lime juice. for the wrap i use 1 rice paper roll.
If I were to remake my goi cuon I would get rid of the carrots because I don't really like the carrots. I would also get put some more dripping sauce, cause it was a bit dry. The praws where very good and the lettuce gave it a bit of crunch. The noodles where also very good.
My Third Country
Japan
The history of making sushi- Around the 8th century in japan. People would use rices for preserving the fish. In later years Japanese people would start to boil the rice instead of steaming it, they would also start earing fish with rice.
A regular Japanese person would usually eat a bowl of rice, ramen, udon or soba, a bowl of miso soup, some sort of pickled vegetables and some meat or fish.
In my Sushi I put sticky rice, nori(seaweed), cucumbers, and carrots.
If I where to improve my sushi hand role I would use salmon, and crab stick. I would get rid of the carrots because I don't like carrots. Since I had some carrot in my sushi my sushi was very crunchy. But I would keep the cucumber because the cucumber would give the sushi some crunch but not to much of a crunch.
My Third Country
Greece
The diet a Greek person would usually consists of vegetables, olive oil, grains, fish, wine, meat, olives, cheese etc.
Recipe of flatbread- 2 cups of flour, 1/4 cup extra floor (for adjusting dough and dusting), 1/2 tsp of salt, 50g of butter, 185 ml of milk, and 1/2 tbsp of oil.
The ingredients I put in my flat bread are 90ml of milk, 60 ml of hot water, 1 tbsp of melted butter, 1 tbsp of honey, 1 sachet of yeast, and 250g of plain flour.
If I where to remake my flat bread again I wouldn't use honey in it. I would make it a savoury flat bread not a sweet one. Because I felt that the flat bread was weird because it was sweet. But the bread was nice and light/fluffy.
My Fourth Country
India
The main things a working class indian eats is rice. Rice is eaten with a lot of vegetables like lentils, eggplant, cabbage, green peppers, cucumber, corn, onion and tomatoes. The main protein that indians eat are chicken, lamb, shrimp or fish. They do not eat beef or pork. The most comon dish that indians eat are currys. Chicken curry, green curry, red curry, etc.
The ingredients used for this was; 2 tomatoes, 1 garlic, some root ginger, cumin, masala(spice), chilli powder, 100ml of water, 1/4 of an onion, tomato pesto, 1/2 of a stock cube(Mainly herbs and spices), 1/4 of green and red peppers, and the wonton skins.
If I where to make my curry pockets better I would put in some meat like beef, or chicken. I would also add in some more spices. The reason being I felt that it was a bit bear. I thought that the wonton skins where a bit weird but there where acutually quite good.
My Fifth Dish
The ingredients I'm going to use for the siu mai are 50g pork loin, 15g fat pork, 60g shrimp, 1 Chinese dried mushroom, 1 1/2 teaspoons crab roe, 6 wrapper, 1 1/2 tsp of water, 1/2 tsp of salt and sugar, 1 tsp of cornstarch, 1/2 tsp of msg a little bit of oil and pepper.
First you dice pork loin, fat pork, shrimp, and mushroom. Mix well with seasoning. Then leave aside. Secondly place the filing on each wrapper shape and press into the shape of a siu mai. Thirdly place some crab roe on top. Next place it on a greased steamer and steam for 8 minutes over high heat.
