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!

Thank you for this really great and fun idea. It is a good way to learn more about culture and food from around the globe.
I've always been curious about what people in the world are putting on their dinner table. Even from Azerbaijan for example, not too many people know that they have such an exotic food. Once again, love the idea and I'll try to spread the word....

I love your concept and I think it is a fantastic way to discover other cultures in the kitchen. Unfortunately, my hubby does ALL of the cooking at home (I actually mean that, he REFUSES to let me cook dinner) and I do the baking. Good luck with your group though, it sounds like a blast!
