World Food Thursdays 9

Welcome back to World Food Thursdays, please scroll down to the bottom of the page and link up your delicious international food!

Please link up your international dishes. We want to see food from every corner of the world together, side by side being delicious all in one common community. We want to revel in our diversity, to respect everyone’s techniques, food preferences, ways of eating and rituals around cooking and eating. Our other linky Grain-Free Tuesdays is quite restrictive, so this one is very open. We still prefer traditional recipes with little to no processed foods.

Please follow the common bloghop courtesy of linking back to this post in your recipe, leaving a comment after linking up, and tweeting, posting to facebook, digging, stumbling or otherwise helping to promote this bloghop. If anyone would like to join us in hosting it just drop us a line. In the meantime enjoy the wonderful foods of the world–perhaps we will all learn to be more tolerant of each other’s differences and in doing so we will create a world of peace, harmony and delightful meals.

When I was a kid our father would read us an article from National Geographic every night before we went to bed…well he showed us the pictures and told us what the article said. We loved it. I used to dream of living in every city in the world, so I could really get to know it…an impossible dream unless I figure out how to live to 897 years old. I am starting to find that World Food Thursdays is a good way to fulfil that childhood dream of mine and is even better than those National Geographic articles. It gives me a slice of the world, but it is such a personal, intimate slice. I get a chance to see into someone else’s kitchen and food-network. It is really lovely to feel connections growing around the world through our shared love of good food.

We had a lot of great recipes last week featuring Morocco, New Zealand, Philippines, Senegal, Japan and Mexico. That’s pretty good, I hope to see a recipe from every country in the world someday….Last week I shared my Miso Soup for Radiation recipe, for those of you who haven’t yet heard miso is especially good for detoxing radiation from your body.

I have been feeling homesick for New Zealand lately, even though Vancouver is actually a lot like New Zealand. Perhaps I just miss the cabbage trees…we had a lovely recipe for pumpkin soup shared with us from one of my favorite kiwi food-bloggers Five Flavors. The Moroccan lamb stew from AModernGal also brought up memories of my days in Morocco studying traditional foods, so this week I am linking up my experiences in the Atlas Mountains drinking Berber Whiskey.

I also just have to mention another interesting recipe from last week which was the Senegalese Peanut sauce from OutlawFarmer which sounds really delicious, I am very curious to try it as it is quite a unique combination of flavors.

And of course I always love the articles shared from Zomppa, they really take you into the heart of food from every corner of the world. Last week’s included a delicious churro recipe. I am hoping I can substitute coconut flour and try them out some time.

    Thanks for the shout out for Lena’s churros – her photo makes me drool and want to dive right into the chocolate. =) Look forward to learning more about gravlax!
