Global Food Blog Report #31

#1:   Crispy Waffle takes a culinary adventure! Check out her Travel: Tunisia post and you will get a very tasty review on all things edible during the trip.

Tunisia, located in North Africa between Algeria and Libya, has an unusual culture stemming from its indigenous Berber roots, Arabic legacy and French colonialism (which ended in 1956). The food, as a result, is an interesting mix of all of these cultures: couscous and harissa, fantastic Turkish-style desserts and mint tea, and good French pastries. Read the complete post

#2: From Italy, while waiting for the delivery of her baby, Gia-Gina prepares a very easy and delicious Garbanzo beans and Tuna Salad.

#3: From Geneva, Switzerland, Rosa's Yummy Yums shares her recipe to prepare Mojo Verde al Fresco:

The "Salsa Mojo" is a typical Canarian specialty that is made with olive oil, vinegar, a lot of garlic and either green or red bell peppers. It comes in two basic versions: red and green ("Mojo Rojo" & "Mojo Verde"). Generally, the red one is eaten with "Papas Arrugadas" ("Wrinkled Potatoes") which are oven baked new potatoes having previously been cooked in sea water.Get the recipes now…

#4: From Australia, A Self-proclaimed Foodaholic cooks up some delicious looking Bruschetta with Tomato, Basil and Avocado.

#5: From India, Hooked on Heat brings up the spice level with a scrumptious all time favorite: Palak Paneer.

When we were growing up, spinach was one such vegetable that I would often hide from. I would cry and cry until my Mom got tired enough to allow me to leave it aside.

#6: From Argentina, Pomelo Pleasures bakes the ultimate Apple Cake:  Argentinian Apple Cake a la Marina!

My Fiance´s mother, Marina quite often makes the most remarkable little cake when I come over. Her 4 boys and I have to fight over it, with that many people in a house it tends to be first come first serve, or rather stuff yourself now because there is no such thing as left overs! Head over to her blog and start baking now!

#7:From Canada, Always in the Kitchen prepares the most  fantastic looking Zucchini Fritters:

They certainly don't need an egg or fancy sauce to show their little golden faces at the table. I do have a compulsion that must soon be addressed: I want to make these fritters meat-ball sized, and serve them with spaghetti and a light, fresh tomato sauce for a light veggie-based dinner. I'm convinced it would be a winner. Ready to cook them?

#8: From Costa Rica, The Real Costa Rica shares a very complete cookbook guide for cooking all traditional and innovative dishes from this Latin American country. If you are a fan of want to recreate dishes you tried during your last vacation do not miss "Like Costa Rican Food?"

#9: From Thailand, Real Thai writes a phenomenal review with photos of his recent travels: A Trip Up North.

One of the most interesting stops on our trip was at Thung Kwieng Market, found along the highway between Lampang and Chiang Mai. Also known as the jungle market, this market previously had a reputation for selling rare animals/produce from the surrounding forests. Today the sale of endangered wildlife is more or less a thing of the past, but there are still some bizarre things to be found, such as this…

#10: From Malaysia, Malaysia Best shares a recipe to prepare stuffed fish, with step by step photos: Ikan Cencaru Belah Belakang , and a review on "Turtle Eggs for Sale: Legal?"

Happy Cooking!
