So how was the month June? Any heatwaves where you are? Or just June Gloom? Well I hope whatever the weather you ate well!
June marked the half way mark for the 52 recipes from around the World for the World, in order to raise awareness of different countries, their amazing use of basic ingredients and some memories thrown in too!
First stop as things really started to heat up, was something to cool you down the light and refreshing Inspired by Iraq – Cucumber, Dill and Yogurt Soup.
Next, a visit to Nepal to really wake up your taste buds with the Inspired by Nepal – Fried Tumeric Fish with Fresh Mint Sauce, the Fresh Mint Sauce will add some zing to any meat or fish of your choosing, but in keeping with Nepalese cooking I choose to create this dish using a lovely piece of fresh fish, coated in a little flour and turmeric and then fried for extra flavour!
Then off to South Africa with a recipe shared with me by my friend Liz, Inspired by South Africa – Mild Beef Curry with Banana, a great easy cheap dish with subtle flavours and lovely memories too.
To mark the half way point I thought a special treat was in order, so I decided to visit the Ivory Coast for inspiration and put together these Inspired by The Ivory Coast – Coconut and Salty Peanut Truffles, because who doesn’t like truffles right?
