best food for me? Italy. definitely. especially continental. in famous places you can get as I have mentioned for Croatian coast - crap. for instance frozen lasagne for 15€.
Croatian bread is very tasty to me. worst bread is in France.

Best bread is from Apulia. I also like the Tyrolean one.

Croatian bread is great, I sometimes eat it as a starter with olive oil and salt I think that generaly in the whole exHabsburg empire bread is just great compared to the rest of the world. Italian pastry is also lush and Turks probably make one of the best sweet pastry.

French bread? I have never tried it.. eat baguettes for God's sake!

btw we had an artificial snow this morning in Bjelovar. namely, just accross the street from firm where i work there is a factory of chipboard panels. they are emitting huge amounts of water steam into air. this morning we had -15°C and of course the steam turned into snow. it was falling in circle of some 300 metres quite a lot, street and cars were white.

baguettes are good first three times, then they become all crusty and tasteless hurting your mouth and next morning they are completely useless, hard like a stone, and you have to buy a new one each day and if you aren't buying just for yourself you have to buy 3 of them because they have nothing inside, but they are insanly long so they don't fit in any bag so you have to walk down the street like a dumbass with them stuffed below your shoulder ...

just my 2 cents

My fav bread of all times is this one though:


Ciabatta bread from central Italy. I practically grew up eating ciabatta with bologna or smoked ham.

We've seen a ciabatta trend come and go here in the last few years.

By "here" you mean in the US? Cool. I didn't know it was known outside Mediterranean Europe. And by the way, I just discovered it was created in 1982 for the first time... I thought it was something traditional...

Ciabatta is also regularly sold in my local supermarket. For at least 10 years, when I worked there at the bakery department.

Good. So, we're teaching the world how to eat properly, and the world is learning well.

(just joking, guys )

Here indeed meaning the U.S. We even pronounce it properly, more or less. It had even filtered as far down as certain convenience stores. The dominant chain in the Philadelphia area was offering sandwiches on ciabatta rolls; I discovered that had stopped when I tried to order one last month.

There's a Top Gear from about 2005 where Clarkson jokingly refers to a trendy neighborhood of London (Notting Hill, maybe) as Ciabatta Central. The other part of the joke is that they discover that every car parked there is one of those small Fiats that I can't remember the name of at the moment.

Fiat 500? Can't be, it was marketed first in 2007.

It was the Fiat 500. I remember that episode. Don't know when it was filmed/aired (for the first time) though.
