We started on this crazy journey to try a dish from EVERY country in the world, 6 weeks ago. Cooking is something Umberto and I both love but we had fallen into a rut of cooking things we knew and dishes that were quick and simple. That all changed one evening when I had some eggplant to use up and needed a change from our usual so I did a search for “Russian” eggplant recipes and quickly found a recipe for “spicy Russian eggplant”. We were so impressed by the way the eggplant turned out, we decided to try a dish from every country around the world.
6 weeks in, we’ve tried recipes from 21 countries. Our favorite has been Thailand and Indonesia. Some recipes have been fails (Canada!). The recipes have to follow some guidelines:
1. Nothing too complicated or too many steps, the most complicated recipe is saved for Sunday evening.
2. Ingredients must be available here (Naples, Italy)
3. Seafood is usually a no (but we have run into some exceptions, Iceland for example).
Welcome to our journey through the world through cooking!
