10 of our most popular dinner recipes from around the world. Travel overseas without leaving your kitchen and enjoy the tastes from exotic locations.
One reason I love to cook popular dishes from around the world is that there is so much you can learn about a foreign culture, without leaving home. For example, shopping for a couple of different ingredients from say, a delicatessen, can lead to all sorts of discoveries in the world of food. Here is a link to an excellent Ted article on the subject of multi-cultural foods.
The country the recipe is from is provided as reference. You can find a full 3-4 course dinner menu for each country on Compass & Fork if you would like to expand dinner to a night of entertaining family and friends. Each country we have featured has many of their traditional recipes on Compass & Fork.
You can find other dinner recipes find them using either the Recipe Search – by cuisine, or the drop down menu at the top of the page under Recipes | By Cuisine. Featured destinations on Compass & Fork over the last 12 months have included: Italy, Turkey, Patagonia, Vietnam, Melbourne (Australia), Thailand, Peru, Greece and Cyprus. Or search by course, and use- dinner.
Most of these recipes are quite easy to prepare. If you can’t find the ingredients locally, please check the shop, there are links to where to purchase the items online. (Most of the recipes contain a link to the item in the shop as well, so you can find them easily.)
