As part of an amazing study abroad program I’ve been lucky enough to call an English castle and its grounds my home away from home for the past month and a half. Spending sevens weeks in England gives a girl a lot of chances for foodie inspiration.
There’s a special kind of feeling you get from travelling that isn’t quite like anything else. It sounds like a horrible cliché, but I think that’s because you aren’t just seeing new sights, trying new foods and meeting new people, you’re actually growing and changing yourself. Travelling makes you new again. And since I most definitely am what I eat, a big part of that transformation is gastronomical. Despite taking what felt like an excess of pictures, I held back from too much food photography – my dining companions were undoubtedly grateful. All the same, here are a few pictures of some treats I couldn’t resist capturing.
The true goal now is to take my new Cath Kidston teapot and my rolling pin and attempt to re-create my own cream tea even while I’m back across the pond. Trips are short, but recipes last forever.
