About

I am cooking my way around the world. By this I mean, I am going to be cooking a meal from every country in the world in a year. 195 countries in 365 days! Bring on the food!

To fulfill this goal, I will be attempting to cook meals from 3 or 4 countries a week. I will be going through the countries in alphabetical order to ensure that I do not miss any… Sorry Zimbabwe, it’ll be a long time before I get to you. I will be posting the recipe that I followed for each meal as well as mine and my husbands reviews. Therefore, if you’d like, you can cook your way around the world with us.

Now, a bit about myself.

  • I am a girl who loves to cook, and I am married to a guy who loves to eat. We’re the perfect match. We will be embarking on this adventure “around the world”; trying out new foods and discovering new favourites together.
  • I am Canadian.
  • I am currently a college student. It will be a bit tricky to balance my school work, social life, and now this, but I am up for the challenge.
  • I was possibly THE pickiest eater growing up. There were probably more foods that I disliked than ones that I liked. I am now trying to expand my horizons by trying new foods. Although, trying new things has not always turned out in my favour. The most gross dish I have ever tried was mondongo, which I ate while in Colombia in 2012. Mondongo is cow stomach soup. But the common way to prepare it in the area I was in is to just take the stomach and its contents and make soup from it. It tasted like a barn. *Spoiler alert* I will NOT be making mondongo as the meal for Colombia.
  • I absolutely love to travel and hope to be able to travel more in the future. I have been to the United States, the Bahamas, Colombia, and Ireland. My top desired travel destinations are Greece, Italy, and Australia.
  • Some of my other favourite things to do, besides cooking are, playing board/card games, watching movies, and crafting.
  • My current favourite food is any form of pasta. It is my staple food.

… I ran out of things to say…. Awkward.

  1. When you get to China, make sure you cook an extra dish for Turkestan…

    As for Colombia, did you try the street food composed of wafers, hundreds-and-thousands and neon yellow jelly? I have no idea what the name is.

    • Thanks for following.
      And yes, when I first got the idea for this blog, I searched online to see if anyone else had done it. I stumbled upon globaltableadventure.com.
