Hi! This is where I record my challenge to cook a different cuisine every week.
are the ones I would make again. Enjoy~
Core Ingredients: Corn related products? Need to make more and update!
Colombian cuisine is a compound of the culinary traditions of the six main regions within the country (Pacific, Amazonian, Andean, Orinoco, Caribbean, and Insular). Furthermore, being one of the most biodiverse countries in the world, Colombia has one of the widest variety of available ingredients depending on the region. (Wikipedia).
Core Ingredients: Parsley.
Greek cuisine (Ελληνική κουζίνα) is a Mediterranean cuisine. It is strongly influenced by Ottoman cuisine. To an even greater extent it is influenced by Italian cuisine and cuisines from other neighboring south European countries. (Wikipedia).
Briam (Greek Baked Zucchini and Potatoes)
It was really easy to make and tasty. Alternative to just a potato bake.
Core Ingredients: Soy sauce, sake, sesame oil.
The traditional cuisine of Japan (和食 washoku) is based on rice with miso soup and other dishes; there is an emphasis on seasonal ingredients (Wikipedia). The recipes below are Japanese comfort food.
Stir Fry Vegetables (Yasai Itame) 野菜炒め
I like that it is plain. But because it is plain, I don’t think I will make it again.
Core Ingredients: A kick from cayenne pepper, chili powder
South African cuisine can be generalised as cookery practised by indigenous people of Africa and cookery that emerged from several waves of colonisation and immigration (Wikipedia).
Geelrys (Yellow Rice)
It feels like a dessert as it is sweet, but it’s good with entrées too. Super easy. Just tossed everything into my rice cooker and done.
Core Ingredients: Meat! Hard boiled Egg. Parsley for Chimichurri.
Argentine cuisine is described as a cultural blending of Mediterranean influences with and very small inflows, Indigenous, within the wide scope of agricultural products that are abundant in the country (Wikipedia).
It needs a long time but it’s good. It’s pretty simple and I just put everything in.
Matambre (Stuffed flank steak)
The taste is not complex enough for the work put in (though it is not a lot of work).
Core Ingredients: Red pepper flakes/cumin (Something with a kick)
Spanish cuisine is heavily influenced by historical processes that shaped local culture and society in some of Europe’s Iberian Peninsula territories. (Wikipedia)
Paella with Chicken, Chorizo Shrimp
It’s good but quite a few steps. I used paella rice and checked frequently to make sure it’s not overcooked.
I tried baking but it didn’t stay in shape. I also tried deep frying at the end but it still didn’t work. I think my mashed potatoes was on the softer side.
Espinacas con Garbanzos (Spinach with Garbanzo Beans)
It is a simple comfort food. Not a huge fan but I may come back sometime.
Core Ingredients: Lemongrass, Fish Sauce, Thai Chili, Thick Coconut Milk
Thai cooking places emphasis on lightly prepared dishes with strong aromatic components and a spicy edge. (Wikipedia)
The seasoning made the ribs kind of dry. I would only season towards the end instead.
Pumpkin Coconut Soup
I would make it again! but I will put the seasonings in a tea mesh so that I can pull them out when I am done
