I brought home one of my host moms' recipe for curry, but my (biological) mother could never figure out how to make it. *sigh*
I wish I could contribute more to this conversation, but I feel like I had some very normal stuff in Ireland (for me, anyway). Other than curry...I'd never had curry and once I tried it, I ate it anywhere there was that had it.
I guess the fact that the next words out of my fingertips are "I feel like I spent more time trying different kinds of alcohol" screams "I was seventeen when I went to Ireland and boy, are some people lax when it comes to carding!"
My favorite "foreign imports" are Nutella and Tim Horton's. <3
