The Global Menu

I am reporting this time from Nanegalito, a picturesque town in the Ecuadorian Andes. Let's see if you can find it in your map! We will report about the marvelous finds in the area in future posts, I promise.

The weekly roundup brings the following news from our blogging food lover friends:

From London, Gastro Chick shares her very own recipe to prepare the “Perfect Mash.” Head over to her blog and find out this well kept secret that finally comes out.

Have you visited BlogHer – where the women bloggers are – yet? They have now a very active “Food & Drink” section where some of the most popular women food blog writers meet and share what they write. Take a look, it's fun!

Directo al Paladar from Spain, writes about three very interesting restaurant guides for Barcelona, Tenerife and Buenos Aires.

Gia-Gina in Italy experiments with baby artichokes and prepares an outstanding salad.

She also explains how to cook with bottarga, which is also known as the poor man's caviar. It is the salted, pressed and dried roe of either tuna (tonno) or gray mullet (muggine.) Her recipe to prepare Spaghetti con Bottarga is delicious and beautiful.

For the love of bread: if you are ready for some “Spicy Bread Seduction”, do not miss the Naughty Curry's recipe to prepare Cactus Sunset Bread.

From Canada, Sour Patch shares some very interesting news: McDonald's goes blogging!

See you soon!
