Announcement: "Cook Around the Globe" - February 2012

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 January. I hope you had fun and will join again this month. This month, we will travel to Northern Europe and discover simple, delicious and down-to-earth dishes from the following countries:

February 2012 "Cook Around the Globe":
Iceland, Norway, Sweden, Finland, and Denmark (incl. Greenland and Faroe Islands)
(You will be able to post the link to your recipe on March 1.)
