    Recipe Persian lamb stew

    I already had this dish on our menu before the potato challenge started because I've been trying to clean out our freezers and found 2 packages of large chucks of lamb of about 1.5 pounds each. So, I decided to post the recipe since the potatoes are placed so prettily and are a big part of the...

    Recipe Spicy Tuna Turnovers/Pastries (Panada Ikan Pedas)

    These little delights are, apparently, Indonesian street food. Since I´ve never visited Indonesia, I can´t honestly say whether this recipe is authentic or not. However, I can assure you it´s delicious and fun to make. I serve it with a sauce made of ketjap manis ( which is soy sauce, brown...

    Recipe Banana Ketchup

    I mentioned mushroom ketchup on the Cookingbites Challenge, and LadyXCII asked me for a recipe. Alas, I have never made it (although I have tried it), but I have made this one, with certain success, once you get over the psychological barrier of using bananas in a savoury sauce. It originated...

    Recipe Daoud Pasha ( Lebanese Meatballs)

    I had a yearning for Middle-eastern food yesterday. I don´t know why; perhaps because I haven´t eaten any for a long while. Off to the supermarket to buy pita bread, some aubergines for home-made babaghanush, handfuls of parsley and fresh mint for salad and half a kilo of minced beef. Originally...

    Recipe Polvorosa de Pollo (Venezuelan Chicken Crumble pie)

    This recipe is a wonderful example of the Caribbean, Spanish, English and French influences on Venezuelan cuisine. It is also one of the most popular recipes in the country. Given the complexity of the recipe, it must have been invented by a chef who was manically meticulous, insane, drunk, or...

    We are talking regions and/or countries. Noticing that some folk said they had never made a Moroccan dish before, I wondered what other gaps there are in member's culinary experience. Here are some of mine: Japanese Korean Icelandic Cuban Peruvian Georgian African (of which there are many...

    Recipe Pescado a la Veracruzana (Fish Vera Cruz style)

    This Mexican dish is traditionally made with Red Snapper, which is difficult to find here. You can use any firm fleshed fish instead. Here I used swordfish steaks. The dish has something in common with the Italian Puttanesca, which also combines capers, garlic, tomatoes and olives. There are...

    Recipe Balti Spice Mix

    Balti is a type of Kashmiri curry which originated in an area which is now Northern Pakistan. It became established in the UK in the '70's in Birmingham. Its generally speaking a quick cooked curry - but of course, you need the spice mix to hand. Its usually cooked in a flat bottomed wok like...

    Ever had a meal of termites?

    When the rains fall in the countryside, you are likely to find families gathered together around an ant hill. They go there to trap and catch termites that fly out when it rains. Growing up I enjoyed joining other kids as we went on a hunt for termites. Our driving force was the delicious meal...

    Which major cities have the best variety of ethnic foods?

    I have lived in a few different cities and am always surprised how some ethic food is almost absent from an area. I love cooking all different varieties of food. When I move to a new city I find I can't cook some of the foods I like because there are no ethnic grocery stores that carry the...
