Just here looking for things you can eat or drink? This page gives you an alphabetical breakdown of common foods and drinks, from complete dishes to flavorings and beyond.
A papaya, sometimes called a pawpaw, is a soft, tropical fruit that has a taste a little like a mild peach or pineapple. Papayas are usually eaten fresh. The seeds are also edible, with a very sharp flavour and are sometimes ground up and used instead of pepper.
Parsley is a herb, which means it is not eaten as a food on its own, but it is added to other dishes for flavour. Parsley is used mostly as a garnish, cut up and sprinkled onto food to make it look nicer. You often find a sprig of parsley being used to decorate food from a restaurant.
Passionfruits are a small, tropical vine. The fruit itself is hard, and either yellow or almost black. The part of the passionfruit that you eat is the seeds and the flesh around the seeds. You cut the fruit in half and scrape the seeds out.
Pasta is a food from Italy, made from wheat flour, water and sometimes eggs. Pasta, or noodles, are made in a special way and are often dried in shape and sold as hard, dry pasta rather than moist, fresh pasta.
