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. You can also link up an archived post from your 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 November. I hope you had fun and will join again this month. When I was grouping countries for this event, I realized that there was one particular country of whose cuisine I am (shamefully, for I visited that country twice) completely ignorant. To my surprise, it also turned out rather difficult to even find cookbooks for that country. There are some of course, but I expected more. After all, the country is quite large (the second largest I think) - but also mostly empty. Can you guess which country I am talking about? For this month, I decided to explore the (forgotten? neglected? ignored?) cuisines of Canada & Alaska (I added the latter for geographical reasons):
