Norbert from Germany would mix up sour cream, with sugar, lemon juice and bananas after our epic Laser sailing outings after storms off Pedder Bay and Race Rocks! Awesome sailing (a few rescues amongst the fleet - no one left behind - much to relief of Jack Matthews) and lots of calories from the sour cream after hot showers!! I'm not sure I'd call it my "favourite" food, but its definitely a favoured memory among many others from Pedder Bay.

Some of the things we ate on our Project Week survival trip were pretty outlandish. The first night all we had caught to eat was a little minnow. So we poached it in an old tin can we found. 7 people, 7 nationalities, 7 nibbles, and 7 sips of water before bed.

Those spicy noodles in the red packages from the student store. Many a late night with my roommates... many an MSG...

Black tea with milk! In Bolivia I had never seen people adding milk to tea ....turns out that it had been common in many other places :) Now I love a good cup of earl grey tea with milk :)

My roomie from Bhutan introduced me to wonderfully spicy dishes, but especially mango pickle, which I still eat plenty of. A friend from Guatemala fried up some plantains during our fall reading week and got me addicted to that. And sushi - but that was more just going from a rural town to Victoria that introduced me to that! Also, so many people taught me a new way just to peel a banana!

Pizza and cinnamon buns :)

SUSHI! Before Pearson, I was slighty skeptical about asian food as I never ate much of it in Mali. At Pearson, I fell in love with sushi (my favorite still being those made by my Eastie co-year from Japan) and noodles and sweet-and-sour meals with rice and soya sauce and other delicious plates.

Apple crisp, but I learned it from my wonderful hostfather.... I then proceeded to cook it over and over again with cafeteria supplies..... We would save our apples and then grab some sugar and butter, ask for 1 cup of oats from housefellows and voila! And then, also from housefellows, mango lassi from Nish and Sadru Damji during Ramadan....

My Asian Pearson friends introduced me into the world of spices. I learned to eat curries, Nasi Goreng, Pad Thai, Gado-Gado... And having China Town in Victoria was also amazing... My Canadian friends and teachers shared beautiful carrot cakes, muffins, grapes and cheese, cheesecake. Just imagine... when I was at Pearson College there was no Internet, no Iphones... I knew little about other cultures. Everything was so new to me!

I learned to eat plain rice with soja sauce... my japanese roomate used to do it. I had never tried soja sauce before!...

cooked apple with cinnamon, home baked soda bread (in the victoria housefellows kitchen) and yes, banana with lemon and sugar. perhaps not the ethnic delights the question hoped for! those came later when I visited them in their homes.

Bread with nutella and banana slices, Masashi's daily ritual. :)

I learned to eat the PC cafeteria food from my class mates. I watched how they did it. In this way, challenging food items, such as three bean salad, tapioca pudding, and Red River cereal (all I assumed Canadian classics??) are now, if not favourites, certainly fondly remembered culinary low lights.
