Rotterdam, the Netherlands

The Dutch almost by force make all people living in Northern Europe believe that they came up with the idea to sell herring as street food.

Bahia State, the city of Salvador, Brazil

We did our best to pinpoint the spot where people cannot imagine their menu without acarajé - masterpiece brought to Brazil from Africa. This appetizing "burger" is scones made from peeled black-eyed peas, stuffed with lettuce, cashew paste, tomatoes, garlic and, of course, seafood. The city of Salvador, located in the north-east of the country, is a home to a subculture of people, mostly women, who cook acarajé. The cooks are distinguished by calico dresses, necklaces and scarves. If you study their family tree, it turns out that they are the descendants of slaves from the Black continent, so to cooking of this dish is bred in their bone. All the country knows about the delicacy, so the place is often visited by both gourmets and cultural studies scholars, who believe acarajé to be an essential part of African culture in Brazil.Photo livejournal.com
