Have had all these things except beef wellington, but couldn't figure out what prosciutto or samosa were... they look so much like any number of other similar foods. Actually samosas originated in the Middle East according to Wikipedia, so it seems unfair that I missed that one because I typed in "sambosa"... which is what they are called there.

I could totally be missing something, but, I'm from the US and when I was in Berlin, they spelled Kebab "Kebap". Is that another spelling or a different sandwich with an extremely similar name?
+1
level 61
Jan 27, 2016
It's usually Döner Kebab (with the b) in Germany too but I believe Kebap is an alternative spelling. Either way Kebab/Kebap just means grilled or fried meat. The funny part is we usually call it just Döner, though that only describes that the meat is spinning (on a stick) as seen in the picture.

Yum, candy corn. Ingredients are sugar, corn syrup, confectioner's glaze, salt, dextrose, gelatin, sesame oil, artificial flavor, honey, Yellow 6, Yellow 5, and Red 3. (Just what all growing kids need.) I've been seeing candy corn show up at Easter, too, with the colors changed to pastel pinks greens, yellows, or purples. There's also a red, white, and blue version, and another autumn version that has a brown chocolate flavor for the bottom layer. There's also a truffle bark recipe making the rounds that calls for melted candy corn substituted for the chocolate mint layer.

If you stack candy corn in a circle with the yellow part on the outside it looks like corncob.

Really? That's not creme brulee?
+3
level 45
Jan 12, 2017
No, a Crème brûlée would have to be served in a ramekin and would have a hard crunchy sugar topping to it which you have to break through with your spoon, the picture shows a Crème caramel (here in the UK anyway) which is soft caramel in the bottom of a ramekin, pour over custard, let it set and then turn it out onto a plat upside down like in the pic. A Flan in the UK is something completely different so I was really confused when that came up when I typed in Crème caramel!
+1
level 82
Apr 17, 2018
So what makes it different from a panna cotta?
+1
level 76
Dec 11, 2018
In the US, flan is the same as other's creme caramel. It's often served in Mexican restaurants. Caramelize sugar and make a syrup, then pour in a ramekin or baking dish. Spoon in egg custard and bake. Invert to serve so the syrup runs over it. Some add whipped cream on top. Panna cotta contains cream, sugar, and gelatin but no eggs. Flan contains eggs and no gelatin.

Agreed. Bocconcini is immature mozzarella, and that's what is pictured here. I wrote it a bunch of times thinking I was spelling it wrong, and then gave up and wrote mozzarella.
