Imagine being able to taste the foods of such diverse countries like Bolivia, Finland and Oman in one month and not have to spend a dime on a plane ticket or a hotel room? Well I just did that last month. With my fellow Blogging Marathon participants, we picked a country beginning with each letter of the alphabet for 26 days last month. The one challenge was X. Since there are no countries that begin with X, we picked a city that began with that letter.
This was such an educational journey for me. Since history is my other favorite subject other than cooking, it was so interesting to learn about the history and cuisine of so many different countries, many never before explored by me…like Croatia and Greenland. I also discovered countries I never knew existed like Reunion Island…a French island in the Indian Ocean.
Soups from Ecuador…Cookies from Croatia…Street Food from Korea…Tea Time Snacks from Bolivia…Salads from Myanmar…I tried it all…
As the weather is starting to cool, this is a great guide to discover some new soups for the winter. I ended up doing a bunch of soups and hearty stews…anyway enough of the intro..let’s take a look back at the recipes I presented last month…so if you want to bring an International twist to your holiday dinners this year…here are some ideas!!!
