Cook Around the Globe


Welcome to "Cook Around the Globe"!

At first, I had wanted to create a monthly event, where I (and anyone interested) would prepare one dish from a chosen country (or group of countries) and then do a link up for all the recipes. However, I very soon realized that I could not just prepare a single recipe from the chosen region. As soon as I start looking into the cuisines for each month, I find so many dishes I want to try. So, this "event" rather turned into a project - a big project. I am having lots of fun exploring different cuisines each months and at the end (after 3 years), I will have one or two months where I will try my hand at creating my own fusion cuisine. I am already jotting down some ideas for dishes I want to create.
