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.
Figs, dates, cherries, nuts, spices, nougat and a whole lot more at the fabulous Spice Market in Istanbul.

Indulging in the delicious seafood delicacies is a must do in Singapore, including trying some extremely fresh crab. This beauty was seen in the lobby of the Marina Bay Sands Hotel, ready to be served with black pepper or spices.
A man buying fresh meat at a wet market in Stonetown, Zanzibar. The smells are overwhelming as you pass through the different areas of the market. Spices, fruit, fish, vegetables, chicken, and red meat. It was incredible to see this ancient place of food trade still operating along traditions created generations ago.
Walking through the London markets on a Sunday. Always a tough decision what delicious meal to choose for lunch.

Been there, Dunn that. Hidden fish burger heaven.
In Bangkok: I just love eating fruit in Asia; not only is it so sweet and juicy, but it's already been cut up and is ready to go (saving you from near-misses with a Swiss army knife and a pineapple back in your guesthouse!).

Taken in beautiful Rothenburg. Amazing how many different sausages and salamis there were - I could not make a choice!

The simple foods of Europe are the best: a plate with lettuce, big red sliced tomatoes, juicy buffalo mozzarella cheese, basil and a dressing of olive oil. Simple, but beautiful served in a little café in Lucerne.

Photo taken in Cinque Terre, Italy. Anchovies three ways, fresh and marinated in lemon juice, fried and salted.
Where to start on these huge, fruity, ice-creamy concoctions? Alex would like to eat them all but sister Libby won't let that happen. They're in a cafe on the beach at Oostduinkerke in Belgium on a brilliant summer's day in August 2013.
Walking through Helsinki towards the port, we came across the luscious fruit for sale. The late summer harvest was difficult to resist
This is my first taste of Slovakian style roast duck served with braised red cabbage and dumplings when I was there visiting in June 2011. How I wish I can have another one now and then.
The Spice Market in Istanbul, Turkey, introduced us to some interesting local products!
Skewered quail eggs with a little piece of sausage on top at the Melaka night markets in Malaysia pack a real protein punch. Question is - which came first? The cookware or the egg...
Sherilyn trying snails in Paris on our June holiday. Thank goodness for garlic!!
In Cambodia, one of the local favourites are the Khmer Frogs, which are marinaded and grilled on an open BBQ. They really are juicy, delicious and a cheap meal while exploring the cities at all times of the day or night. A must try!
I wonder what has happened to all the people of Cairo, now that they have so many troubles. I found them to be very friendly and welcoming. I took this picture in October 2010, the Cairo spice market.

I miss the London City markets.
In Southern Sri Lanka, they make a special tuna dish made with 22 different spices, which keeps for over a week without refrigeration. We stopped off in the garden of this woman's home, where they showed us how the dish is prepared and then served us a sumptuous lunch. All the more poignant as it was close to the area devastated by the 2004 tsunami.
The freshly picked fruit and vegetables looked so good.
This was one of the many food stalls in the fresh food and produce market in central Barcelona. Photos was taken early October 2013.
Market place in France selling mouth watering olives.
This was on a market stall in Aix-en-Provence in the south of France. I took the photo last month and was horrified by the donkey product, but I guess they also eat horse meat in France. And, no, I didn't sample the it.
Foods collected on our travel exploring Paris. Each morning, leaving our apartment in Paris, we had the pleasure of viewing the window display of Julien patisserie in Rue Saint-Honoré. Each day it was a new display of tempting french delicacies.
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.
