You are going on vacation. But this time, instead of staying in a hotel or hostel, you decided to rent an apartment. This is a great decision, which will allow you to experience the place you are visiting in a unique way.
In the absence of a hotel dining room or room service on such a trip, you will find yourself eating out a lot—but also cooking at home. So how do you deal with a strange kitchen, and what are the easiest meals to cook on vacation? Here are some tips.
Visit The Local Supermarket
For some of us, visiting a supermarket in a foreign country is a significant part of the fun. Choose a supermarket that offers lots of local products and fresh products—like fish, vegetables, and local pastries.
Choose Interesting Ingredients For Cooking
Try choosing products that you would not pick at home—such as local cheeses or handmade pasta. If you are unsure about ingredients or allergens, ask someone local, or check online.
Choose recipes that do not require a lot of kitchen equipment you might not have in the apartment you are staying in. Leave the blender, pasta machine, and steaming pots at home, and try to choose recipes that require basic equipment.
