Harry's Cafe de Wheels - Australian Meat Pies

This is the famous Harry's Cafe de Wheels, the home of the best meat pies in Sydney. Or maybe in all of Australia? I haven't tried enough to know. But they were really good. Lots of famous people have eaten the pies here, including Colonel Sanders of KFC fame. Check out the inset image for a closeup of the classic "Tiger Pie" on the left which has mashed potatoes, and the "Pie & Peas" on the right. Both feature mushy peas, which aren't as bad as they sound. There are many other varieties available which you can see on their menu here.

Wanna Buy a Big Fish? Fish Market in Serui, Papua, Indonesia

Wanna Buy a Big Fish? Fish Market in Serui, Papua, Indonesia

The fish/seafood section of any Indonesian market is always interesting (and full of smells). This fisherman was eager to show off his best catch of the day. I think this is a tuna or mackerel.

Dusty Chianti Wine Bottles - Greve in Chianti, Tuscany, Italy

Old dusty bottles of chianti wine in the town of Greve in Chianti, Tuscany, Italy. We visited a giant wine tasting house (Unione Produttori Vini del Chianti) in Greve as we drove through Tuscany to Florence.

Coffee Bean Closeup

This is a closeup of the coffee beans in the drying stage as mentioned in the previous photo. These beans still have a thin sheath around them which will be removed later before the coffee is roasted. Unfortunately, I missed out on seeing the roasting process, so I don't have any photos of that.

Coffee Bean Drying

Coffee Bean Drying

Continuing my series on coffee, this is the next step where the coffee beans (which have already been extracted from the fruit) are dried. In this Papuan village, the beans are often dried inside this building so they don't have to worry about rain. The beans are raked periodically to help with the drying process and prevent them from molding in the humidity.

Coffee Fruit / Coffee Cherry Closeup

This is a closer view of the coffee fruit as they appear when they have just been picked. These berries are gathered in rice sacks and then wet processed as shown in the last photo.

Coffee Fruit Wet Processing

Coffee Fruit Wet Processing

These are raw coffee fruit going through the wet processing method which is the first step in extracting the coffee bean from the fruit. Bad or unripe fruit will float and the good ripe fruit will sink. The skin of the cherry (as it is sometimes called) and some of the pulp is removed by pressing the fruit through this hand-crank machine in water. The bean will still have a significant amount of the pulp clinging to it that needs to be removed in a later step.

Oh Rats!

A guest contribution from my Dad in Northern Sulawesi, Indonesia. This tasty BBQ was part of the wedding feast preparations for a Minahasan wedding they attended March 17. The Minahasa people are known for eating just about anything around, including bats, rats, and dogs.

Sago Palm

Sago Palm

The starch from the trunk of the sago palm is the staple food of many people groups in SE Asia. It can be prepared dry & flaky or orange & rubbery. Sometimes it’s cooked with a bit of sugar for a nice sweet breakfast, or sometimes with deer meat juice for a savory delight. It’s an acquired taste, but when you’re hungrily hiking through the rainforest for 14 days, the acquiring part comes really quickly.
