As you may well know, a few months ago some friends of mine and I started up our very own food safari. Where we get together every month or so with one country in mind. We then cook a dish or two at home, get together and share it. It’s been so great to cook dishes that push you out of your comfort zone and make you try new ingredients and flavours. Our first one was mouth watering Indian, that you can see here.
And since then, we have travelled (with our taste buds) to both Cambodia and Peru. Here’s what we cooked up:
I spent three weeks in Cambodia in 2013 and loved the food on offer, though I haven’t tried it since! I haven’t been to a Cambodian restaurant nor attempted anything in the kitchen so this was an exciting excuse to try just that.My stir-fried pineapple with ginger dishSteph’s spicy aubergine curryKathy’s creamy butternut squash curryMy ginger and coriander riceErin’s veggie rollsErin’s deep fried potato ballsServed with an amazing peanut dipping sauce
Up next, was Peru. Peru is known as having the best food in South America and Lima is known as the gastronomic capital of the continent! One of my friends was born in Peru so she hosted the Peruvian night and the food was spectacular!Steph’s ceviche: a fish variety and a veggie mushroom one tooThe purple corn that Kathy used to make the traditional drink chicha de moraErin’s delicious passion fruit chilanco (pisco, ginger ale and passion fruit)Erin’s tacu tacu (rice and beans fried into a patty)… served with a red onion salad.Kathy’s Papa a la huancainaMy quinoa, sweet potato and corn soupAll mixed together on a plate, it was perfection! And to round it off, Florence’s passion fruit suspiro limeño.
Just looking at these photos is making my mouth water, all over again!
And up next, Italy! Where would you food safari to?
