This illustrated recipe is a Christmas version of the Croquembouche, an impressive pyramidal confection popular in France for weddings and important celebrations. Comprised of cream puffs dipped in warm caramel and stacked to form a tree/pyramid, it is often finished off with a web of spun caramel or powdered sugar.
I first saw one of these beautiful structures in Provence back in 2015, when I came upon a
celebration for French firefighters in the town square. I've been wanting to make one ever since!
Three Sisters Soup starts in the garden. Maize (corn), beans, and squash were planted close together, like sisters, because each one helps the other grow and thrive. After harvesting, the squash is roasted, and then all ingredients cook and simmer on the stove until the flavors develop. It’s hearty, yummy, and a perfect meal for cold winter weather!
I have fond memories of eating this salad growing up in Moldova, especially during the holidays. The Russian Vinegret (Vinaigrette) Salad is a pretty much staple at any gathering during the New Year's celebrations. It's a delicious vegetarian option, packed with veggies and beautiful color given off from the beets.
I love all things Greek, but by far am most enamored with the isle of Hydra. Wheeled transportation is prohibited, so all travel on the tiny island is by foot, or donkey, with hundreds of languid local cats sunning themselves everywhere. The boats unload at the harbor straight to the restaurants, from sea to kitchen to your plate in an instant. The sun, the sea, the seafood, citrus from the trees, the air scented with flowers and food, the tables at street side cafes filled with artists, musicians and travelers, elbow to elbow. Hydra sates all the senses and is Heaven.
Lahpet or pickled tea is the most iconic of Burmese foods and unique to the country. It’s eaten in two main ways – as a-hlu lahpet, where the ingredients are served in a beautiful, divided lacquerware dish (aka Mandalay lahpet), and as a salad known as lahpet thoke (aka as Yangon lahpet).Eat as a snack, as a palate-cleanser at the end of a meal or with rice.

Global Cuisine Design Challenge (although I've had this idea since the food memories challenge - of preparing food with my mum and auntie in a loving but organised chaos kitchen)
GLOBAL CUISINE - Here are a few festive cookies that would add much joy and deliciousness to any holiday celebration! So many to choose from across the world - but these from Sweden, Italy and Austria caught my eye (and tummy).
We are fortunate to have recipes and food available to us from many different cultures. From Mexico, we can enjoy tortillas, tacos and fajitas. Who can resist Italian food such as Lasagna, Ravioli and pasta? Then from China, we get won ton soup, stir fried rice and orange chicken. And these delicious foods cannot be made without SPICES.
Do you also have a cabinet full of hot sauce jars, tubs and tubes? Sometimes I panic not knowing which one I want to use. These are just some of the tasty spicy sauces I've tried. What about you? Do you have a favorite?

Cappelletti! Typical pasta from Emilia-Romagna, my home-region. In my family we used to make them all together for Christmas and cook them in broth, which is also the way I prefer to eat them! I need to learn how to make them in my own... Maybe it could be one of my new year resolutions!
An illustrated compendium of (a few) global curries, ranging from India, Thailand, Japan, Kenya, and Indonesia. The formula of an excellently cooked protein in a spicy sauce with a side of rice (or naan) is a multinational pleasure.
I absolutely love Mexican food and these stuffed peppers are to die for. A healthier option that can actually be adapted to your own taste – the peppers can really be stuffed with anything!
In a large pan, heat the oil over medium heat. Add the chopped onions, cumin and coriander and cook, stirring occasionally, until the vegetables have softened. Add in the meat, then the rest of the ingredients, stirring until cooked. Then stuff the peppers with the contents of the pan, sprinkle the cheese on top and put it in the oven for about 45 mins at 180c.
Global Cuisine, Feast of the Seven Fishes is an Italian-American tradition on Christmas Eve. A large meatless meal is common in Italy, but the Italian Americans gave it a theme of 7 Fishes. There are no rules on what dishes make up the seven, just lots of seafood!
