There are few types of cinnamon. The most common nowadays falls under the Cassia umbrella. It's cheap and tastes quite horrible, imo, bitter too, even if the scent is pleasant + it has a component that is toxic to the liver. If you ever have the chance try Ceylon cinnamon (from Sri Lanka). It's significantly more expensive, but the taste is exquisite - lighter, sweeter and healthy too.
Adding a tiny bit of vanilla to cacao is great as well. Brings out the taste and makes it more chocolate-y. Useful for cakes as well.
I've been spoiled with enjoying real Japanese sushi for 3 years, with fresh Japanese fish, so much so that sushi I find in German restaurants which is made with frozen fish tastes really bland and honestly bad. Best case scenario is shelling out 30-40 EUR for sushi that is konbini level at best and I really don't enjoy doing that. I can't imagine putting canned fish on rice and calling it sushi. That is heresy kenubrion!
Why didn't you make tuna salad or tuna and mayo sandwich? I mean you have all these great American options, might as well use them.
I do wonder though if countries in Europe that have more sea access than Germany, like England, Ireland and Scandinavian countries have better sushi in their restaurants. It is absolute imperative to use fresh fish that has not been frozen and then defrosted if you want to eat Japanese level sushi.
I have just (Friday) decided I am going to eat my way around the world.
Mostly because my lifelong goal is to travel the world (since I was a tyke) and I will never be rich enough to do so.
so 195 recognized countries, (minus Vatican because it doesn't have a unique long term food culture, plus Scotland and Whales)
Three dishes for each country, I have to have real food from there, I have to be able to purchase it while in the country (so American pizza, nachos or chimichangas, or general tso's chicken, all count as American , not Italian, Mexican, or Chinese)(or that pork vindaloo counts as English, not indian) famous restaurants known for authentic, count. good friends from said countries, count.
so far I have dregged up the old cook books and some handwritten recipes I received from native friends and knocked out Malaysia, Singapore, Vietnam, Myanmar, Bangladesh, India, and tomorrow is leftover day.
I'm having a lot of fun too, which is the most important.
