Mulgi Puder (Estonian Potatoes & Barley) – Estonia

Posted Leave a commentPosted in By Country, Eastern European, Estonia, Main dishes, Potatoes, Recipes, Side dishes, vegan, Vegetable, Vegetarian

Estonia is located in Northern Europe just across from Finland. I mention this because their foods are both quite hearty and similar. This is also fairly reminiscent Kasha Varnishka, a classic Jewish dish of kasha and bow tie noodles, but moister. As usual, I searched YouTube for authentic videos. Interestingly, this was only the second […]

Poulet DG (CEO Chicken) – Cameroon

Posted Leave a commentPosted in African recipes, By Country, Cameroon, Chicken, Main dishes, Recipes

When searching for a dish from Cameroon, I kept coming across Poulet DG. I thought the title was cute because in French, a PDG is a CEO. Turns out that this is a very popular and special dish that was reserved for the wealthy or for when special guests. I watched about 10 different videos […]

Years ago I worked for the French Music Office and one of the artists we worked with was Cape Verdian singer Cesária Évora. She must have been signed to a francophone record company as those were the only artists we worked with. She recorded in France and was even knighted by the French Legion of […]

When I was a little girl, my dad used to do Indian Guides with my brothers and as a consolation prize once a year we would go on a day or weekend trip. One time, we went up to Boston and ate at this fabulous Hungarian called Cafe Budapest. I can still see their pretty […]

Tonight, our more or less alphabetical culinary Tour du Monde has brought us to Bhutan. Kewa Datshi is a mix of potatoes, farmer cheese and hot chili peppers in a thick gravy. Actually pretty good. We finished off the entire pot. Looked at a few recipes. Recommend using 1 1/2 cups rather than 3 cups […]

As soon as we sat down for food from BOTSWANA, what does Eva say? Hey, that is where Bill from Mama Mia went! She was indeed correct… “Bloke in a Boat in Botswana” The food seems to fit the type of profile a bloke in a boat might eat – earthy, rustic, simple down home […]
