Want to try a recipe from a lovely woman living on the coast of Turkey? Or how about a farmer in Sweden? A lot of people ask us, “So what is the food like over there? What are you guys eating?” I created this page to share some of the recipes our hosts have so kindly made for us along the way, and some we stumbled across ourselves and loved!
Who doesn’t love sharing recipes? Or collecting new ones? Well, Nat might argue that he’s pretty neutral about it, but I think it’s so much fun! In fact, I’m probably a bit too keen on it, bordering on obsessive, but that’s okay. A lot of people don’t think about how grocery stores or markets differ between countries. I certainly didn’t give it too much thought until we flew to Europe and people didn’t know what I was talking about when I asked where the zucchini were (I later realized they called them “courgettes”, much prettier).
As I alluded to above, one aspect of volunteering that I love is you often get to try wonderful, home-made food from around the world, not just from the country you’re visiting. I’ve been slowly collecting recipes from the hosts and fellow volunteers we have been meeting in our travels, and I wanted to share them with the rest of the world! Some of them are simple, and they may or may not originate in the country I got the recipe in, but all are delicious so I hope you enjoy!
