I just got back from Spain, where I enjoyed a lot of fried fish and French fries. I'm not ashamed to admit that I always paired them with mayonnaise. There's something about European mayonnaise that's absolutely divine. How about you?
Recently, I received an email from a PR representative asking me if I wanted to sample Biscoff cookies, "a European treat that's developed a cult-like following among Americans." The company happens to be opening its first US retail store at San Francisco's Pier 39. While I wasn't familiar with the brand Biscoff, I love European-style cookies, so naturally, I said yes. The cookies, which are sometimes called biscuits, are a flavorful accompaniment to coffee. They are crisp and taste like a cross between a graham cracker and animal crackers. Have you ever had them? Are you a fan?
A European dish of meat rolled around a filling, such as cheese, vegetables, or other meats. The meat is often browned and simmered in liquid, then sliced into rounds and served. A roulade can also refer to any rolled dish, from a jelly roll cake to sushi.

An odd-looking fish found in European seas, the John Dory has a huge, spiny head and long, flat body. The fish's flesh is mildly delicate, and it can be grilled, sauteed, or poached. It's rarely imported into the US, which explains why Ramsay would like to have it on his American restaurants' menus.
