Week Two...Australia

G'day Mates! The big country of Australia has been selected for our second week abroad. We had a few things get in the way of our regular schedule, so you'll have some extra time on this one...after that, we'll be rolling week after week! Perhaps someone will grill a wallaby? A kangaroo?? This should be a fun week - please have your pics and recipes ready to post on June 20th. Can't wait to see the Brazil results! Make sure not to forget - you'll miss getting your ever important passport stamp!

Week One...Brazil

Thank the husband for this choice. Brazil. Posts need to be made by Saturday, May 31.. That gives you a little over a week to make it. So get started! Let everyone know what you are thinking - or fine, be sly and keep it to yourself until then. But please, DO NOT post your meal until Saturday the 31st. I will reveal the next country by Thursday each week, and posts will always be on Saturday. Not going to participate this week? Drop me a line and say why...but try not to miss a leg of this round-the-world adventure!

Welcome to My Kitchen, My World!

After much thought and deliberation (and much demanding from a hungry husband) I have set up this blog to document the journey of experiencing other cultures through food. That's right - food...that I make. And YOU make. Each week a country will be chosen, and we adventurous types will have 7 days to find a recipe for a dinner that takes us there for a fraction of the plane fare!
There are so many great baking groups out there already (like Daring Bakers & Tuesdays With Dorie, for example) but we need food food, too, right? Ever wanted to make Paella? Gnocchi? Stir Fry or Jamaican Jerk? Well, here's your chance. One dinner a week, start to finish, make a meal that takes you places. What could be better than that?

Join the group - its a big world out there!
All you need is a hungry belly, a blog to document your journey, the ability to post at least twice a month, and a kitchen! Each week we will vote as a group who had the most inventive and delicious looking dinners - who knows, maybe one day we'll even give prizes other than ego boosts!

Send an email to mykitchenmyworld (at) gmail (dot) com
and I will get back to you ASAP with the cuisine of the week!
Buon Appetito!
