International Food Recipes made Just like Oma

Trying out international 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 80 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.

Share your International Food Recipes with us

I'm sure you have some special dishes you make when you have company. Something that is typical from your childhood that brings back memories of the country you grew up in.

I find that when I have company over, they expect a German meal. Even though I live in Canada, it's what they hope they're going to get.

How about you. Do you have something special you can share 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.
