Can't see it being a problem - Europeans have quite eclectic tastes.

Whether the kidswill like it depends on individual tastes.

Re: new recipes with a sweeter touch

I agree with geoff.
Lots of children here love apple pancakes, the "hawaii" combination (ham, pineapple and cheese) - and that is only the children who don't particularly like veggies, fruit and "new" food wink

Re: new recipes with a sweeter touch

Sweet fruity dishes are actually very popular throughout tge world.

In the UK, for instance, we have the traditional marriage of pork and apples, or pork and prunes - and what could be more '70's than gammon and pineapple (with a preserved cherry in tge ring). Duck or goose is often served with a fruit sauce. Venison is wonderful with a chocolate or fruit sauce. Lamb and redcurrant jelly are just as popular as lamb with mint sauce. Fruit is very often included in stuffings or coatings for roasts. Fish and citrus fruits are often married. Even the traditional English preserves such as chutneys and pckles often contain fruit, and the archetypical "Brown Sauce" always contains fruit.

And, of course, we haven't even mentioned the dishes we have adopted from other cuisines - Chinese sweet and sour or sweet and fruity dishes. Mediterranean tagines, with dates and honey, Indian dishes with mango, melon & parma ham etc. etc..

In German cuisine (and I gather in Skandinavia, too) lingonberry sauce / jam is often served with meat dishes - mostly game wink

Re: new recipes with a sweeter touch

I love adding fruits to stir fries, salads, kebabs etc....pineapple and mango are my favourite but oranges, apples, kiwis, bananas and grapes all go down a treat too.

By the way Lukeb....i see you're a chef in Malta. I'll be staying at the Qawra palace hotel in October for a week....is it any good ?  thumbsup
