Take some chicken– if not beef or mutton– potatoes, onions and a curry paste made with cardamom, cinnamon, cumin, cloves, nutmeg and mace, and you have actually got yourself the makings of a massaman curry. This conventional Thai meal, which has Muslim roots, stands in contrast with a few of the country’s more well-known dishes, like the hot and sour tom yum soup with chili and lemongrass, not to point out the famous pad Thai.

The United States TELEVISION network CNN has actually updated its pick of the world’s finest foods with a top 50 list of tasty international delights. The choice takes in flavours from around the world– a prompt offering when travel is still restricted due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

Interestingly, France– a nation renowned for its cuisine– has no entry in the leading 10. The nation makes its very first appearance in the list at number 21, with its traditional croissant. The timeless pastry is overtaken by the hamburger, the American donut, the Portuguese pastel de nata and the shish kebab.
