These are three more “make up” cuisines I explored recently, which I had skipped when I originally cooked “C” and “F” cuisines, several years ago by now. For Chiapas, I made a delightful Pollo en Frutas For Coahuila, I made much less successful but literal enchiladas and for Florence, I made a pasta & beans […]

My international food project is going.  Slowly, even painfully so, but going.  I’m a bit behind on updating the website, but here are three cuisines that I finished some months ago but never got around to adding.   Two of these were “make up” cuisines, those that I skipped when I first reached them – either […]

Seventeen years into my International Food Project, it’s become pretty clear that I’ll be lucky if I get to the middle of the alphabet before I die.  The real problem is that I get enthusiastic for a while, do a lot of cooking, and then just get tired of it and go back to eating […]

It’s sort of weird. I go through periods when I cook every day and make an effort to continue my international food project.  Then there are periods where I go months and months without cooking at all, having take out or frozen food.  And sometimes I just make simpler things – though usually that happens […]

Slowly but surely I’m continuing in my international food project.  For the last fifteen years I’ve been coking foods from different world cuisines, alphabetically.  I’m still at the “G’s”.  It may not seem like much, but in these fifteen years I have explored 134 cuisines and cooked 441 recipes – and more are coming! I […]

Gabonese & Greek Menus Up

No, I have not forgotten my international food project, though I always progress much slower than I want to.  I’ve cooked dishes from a 133 cuisines so far, and I’m still only a little into the “G”.  Still, I have now finished two more “G” cuisines. My Gabonese menu features recipe for fish in peanut […]

Another year, another complex Xmas Eve menu.  This year, my 11-yo daughter Mika said she wanted a 13-course dinner.  She didn’t know why, that number just came to her head, but she wanted it.  I could have argued against it, but I figured with a little bit of creativity I could get there.  And Mika […]
