Announcement: "Cook Around the Globe" - September 2011

Welcome to "Cook Around the Globe"!


This is a fun monthly event where we learn about the character of different cuisines around the globe simply by cooking dishes. Each month, I will choose a country or a group of countries. Each participant prepares one (or more) dishes from these countries. On the 1st day of the following month, you can post a link to your dish on my blog. The dish can be anything: drink, appetizer, main dish, pastry, etc. Depending on the number of participants, we will get a great variety of dishes from a certain region of the world. For each chosen region, I will also try to post some links  where to find recipes.

(Registration is not necessary for this event. Simply post your link on my blog.)


First of all, I want to thank everybody who participated in August. I hope you had fun and will join again this month. For September, I invite you to explore the cuisines of the Arabian Peninsula:

September 2011 "Cook Around the Globe":
Arabian Peninsula (Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Bahrain, Qatar, United Arab Emirates, Yemen, Oman)
(You will be able to post the link to your recipe on October 1.)

  4. Hmm...for some reason whenever I think Middle Eastern food I tend to associate it more with turkish cuisine. I'll definitely have to research this one.
