Blogger & Culinary Traveler
Jan 2012 – Dec 2012
One of my favorite ways to learn about other countries and cultures is through their food, but international vacations are few and far between these days. So, I explored through my kitchen instead. My goal? To conjure up delicious and healthy global cuisine without breaking my budget. My hunch was that our gastro-differences aren't enormous, that they're just a few unusual ingredients, unexpected flavor combinations, or cooking methods/preparations that aren't frequently used in the U.S. My experiment resulted in many delicious dinners!
