For our taste of travel photo competition, we're looking for delicious photos of food from your trips abroad.

This is a cannoli that I bought next to Fontana di Trevi in Rome last year, while on exchange.

It was the perfect treat after seven hours of walking these beautiful historical streets. Crunchy and smooth at the same time,  it's deep fried hard pastry filled with sweetened ricotta cheese. This one is dipped in pistachio nuts but sometimes it's chocolate sprinkles or chips, or dried fruit.

They sometimes get so big it's impossible to have one by yourself, you have to share it.

This one was so good I'd already had a sneaky bite. They are fantastic, traditional and exciting, like the beautiful city of Roma.
