Trying out foreign food recipes and doing them in an easy and quick way is a fun way to learn about the different cultures of the world. This is an interesting way of experimenting with unusual foods and culinary methods.
Even though much of my cooking is German, it's so much fun to try out what's enjoyed in other countries.
Often my daughters-in-love will introduce something new at our family dinners -- French, Mexican, or something totally blended from various countries.
I've been totally blessed at the new church we've been attending. It's called Victory International Church in Hamilton, Ontario. And that's exactly what it is. With over 60 nations represented, it's a complete multicultural experience every time we get together. (The Praise and Worship is amazing!)
It's so fun to invite (we have German) or be invited for dinner. We've tried foods we never thought we'd have, made in the traditional ways. Just the past few months we've had Laotian, Guyanese, Filipino, Kenyan, Ghanaian, and Scottish foods.
It was so interesting when we were having Kenyan foods, that I recognized Ugali, a recipe that had been sent in to me by Dan last year.
An eclectic mix of party foods is a sure way to please everyone. OR, have theme nights - go around the world, starting of course with Germany, then France, then Mexico, then China, etc.
Especially at parties, combining international food recipes makes a delicious buffet. For some ideas of festive foods from around the world, do check out All About Cuisines. This is a fun way to introduce different tastes and flavors to your family and friends.
Why not share your favorite international recipes with us? Perhaps it's a main dish, a dessert, or a party dip? Even include a photo if you have one. Let's see if we can get recipes from around the world.

Anne says, "Just made this last week for my Birthday. I usually add walnut pieces or almond slivers. Can't believe it looks exactly the same as my Mama taught me some 40 years ago, the only thing what we did different, we use a fork to make the ridges in the apples. But they do open up better the way you do it with the knife. And you are right, this recipe never fails :)"
Gabriele H. says, "What a wonderful place to find German recipes without having to call family in Germany. I'm loving it."
