B is for Bangladesh and the best meal we have had yet on our alphabetic gastronomical world tour. Everyone absolutely loved it. We are big cardamon fans…especially Eva. Love how they season oil or ghee with cardamon pods, bay leaves, cinnamon stick, peppercorns and cloves. Always wondered what made rice so tasty…now I know. Watched […]

Last night was Belize! We made rice and beans with coconut milk. It was ok – glad to have tasted it, but it will probably not be on my list of things to remake. The Bengali rice was definitely superior. Recipe source: Belizian Coconut Rice and Beans

Today’s culinary destination was Costa Rica. Tilapia on a bed of rice, beans, oranges and tomatoes.
