FAMILY MATTERS - There's nothing bland about European food

Last week, I wrote about sights and sounds in Amsterdam, Brussels, London and Cambridge, England. This week, I will write about the food. Some say English food is bland. Fish and chips, for example ... not very distinguished. But if you ever go to England, make sure to try something called "pasties." These are delicate, puffy pastries filled with delicious meats, vegetables, and cheeses. You can order a wide variety. The most typical is filled with a sort of stew, like a portable chicken or beef pot pie. But I don't do it justice with this description. Pasties are inexpensive and delicious. I wish they were sold here.
