My initial thought

I love traveling, but my current budget does not allow for very much of it. Instead I watch the Travel Channel. I also have recently started really enjoying cooking and wanting to learn more about cooking. I think it’s fascinating how cuisine varies in different places around the world, and how food is such an integral part of culture.


I also like goals. So, combining all of that I thought, wouldn’t it be fun, interesting, informative and tasty to cook one meal from a different country each week (or most weeks) next year? I can’t start now, because finishing my dissertation is taking up most of my brain space and my time. But, wouldn’t that be a fun plan for 2011? I’m fortunate to live in a city with access to lots of international grocery stores and markets.


My thought is I could plan to make meals from 50 different countries during 2011. I think I would learn a lot.
