A few years ago I participated in a Cooking Around the World group with a bunch of other bloggers. We traveled to all of the different continents, and had a lot of fun eating around the world. It gave us a chance to try out some recipes we wouldn’t have tried otherwise, and some fun homeschool geography lessons. When that particular group stopped, we continued, but at a drastically reduced pace. Then my friend Samantha over at Creative Clever and Classy asked me about these posts, and I thought, it’d be a good idea to collect them all together.
Before I get to our Cooking Around the World recipes I want to say a few things
- I am terrible at following recipes, so any mess ups of valued traditional recipes is unintentional.
- There are a lot of recipes you can find online, but there are also some amazing books you can find.
- If you can’t laugh at yourself, then who will you laugh at, so these are mostly written tongue in cheek.
- Some of the recipes were so bad I’m not linking to them, especially in Africa and the Americas.
Cooking Around the World: Africa
We had incredibly bad luck with recipes from Africa. So, there’s not that many recipes from here, yet. I have a new plan for how we’ll pick countries to study, and we’re going to randomly draw a country from our Cardline game.
Cooking Around the World: Americas
While I could split this up into North and South America, let’s face it, North America is basically 3 countries, though I do have a few recipes specific to states.
Cooking Around the World: Asia
Batman’s favorite country is China, and so we’ve done a few more countries in Asia than I’d realized. Also, I like asian food quite a lot, even if Princess doesn’t really.
Cooking around the world: Europe
We have quite a few recipes from Europe because when the kids picked out a continent to study, they asked to try Euorpe first, with Asia a close second.
Cooking Around the World: Oceania
I kind of prefer the term Australia, and that’s actually what I taught the kids, but I wanted at least two of the continents to not start with “A.”
Yes, I am sometimes ridiculously silly.
Well, that’s all our Cooking Around the World ideas so far
At least until I update or recook a few of those older recipes. Like Korea, poor Korea has illustrations, because my computer ate the pictures.
