When I travel, the first thing I miss about home, is the food. But it’s not the food that make up my every day at home that I miss …

….not the caramelised pork ribs

…. or the hot and sour soup …

… it’s often the most simple things, and things that I may not even have everyday – but which somehow triggers a sense of nostalgia. Today, for example, I miss my milo and milk. As a child, this formed an integral part of my breakfast; but as an adult, I think I’ve not had one of these for over a year… Right now, I’m thinking how perfectly it would marry with the flaky pain au chocolat that I can smell wafting from the bakery on the rue de Debelleyme downstairs…

What do you miss most, when you miss home?

bisous, mon ami
