Visiting a beach in Mumbai as kid was incomplete without chana chaat, a tangy chickpea salad. Easy enough to recreate at home, this quick recipe works wonderfully as a starter. If you don't have chaat masala in your kitchen pantry, substitute with paprika.
One winter, I was able to escape to the Southern Hemisphere to visit a friend in Chile. After a tiresome plane ride, my friend picked me up and we hit the streets of Santiago. The sun was hot and the jet lag was setting in, so we stopped for one of Chile’s favorite treats: mote con huesillos. After we ordered, two cups were filled with cooked wheat berries, dried peaches and finally an icy sweet liquid steeped in peaches, sugar, cinnamon and orange. Standing there, under the hot afternoon sun and drenched in sweat from a day of exploring, it was a most welcome treat that reminded me of one of the reasons I love traveling.

Every autumn, when the temperature and humidity is just right, my mother and I wait for the perfect moment to go mushroom hunting in the neighboring forests. With our eyes peeled to the forest floor we pick only those we know to be edible.
Gathering only enough for our dinner we hurry home while the mushrooms are still at their freshest. Prepared in a simple manner, we use our old cast iron pan, a dab of butter, a splash of cream, pepper and salt and some herbs like parsley and rosemary. Nothing more. We want to savor the taste that every unique mushroom has to offer. With our plates warmed and ready they end their journey with glass of chilled white wine.

Rita is my good friend's mom. She's Armenian, but she grew up in Iran. Every time I visit her, she cooks the most amazing food like this Indian Red Lentil Dal. On one visit, I begged her to teach me how to make this dish. She was delighted I had asked - but she didn't actually have a recipe to give me. She makes everything from memory and seasons according to taste. Rita showed me how to cook this red lentil dal while I took furious notes. I later worked out the quantities and perfected my own take on her recipe. This Armenian-Persian-Indian dish is one of my family's favorites. Serve with saffron basmati rice (with tadig if you can manage) and a generous dollop of plain yogurt.

Mushroom picking in the forest is a favorite outdoor activity in Poland. My grandmother and her sisters loved picking mushrooms here, too. I enjoy hunting for mushrooms but would love it even more if only I could teach my dogs to sniff out the mushrooms, ala truffle pigs. My aunt started making this recipe 30 or 40 years ago. I don't know where the recipe originated. If anyone recognizes it, please share the source!

My Sumission to the Global Cuisine challenge
GLOBAL CUISINE: Memories of this dish were brought to mind after all the olive harvesting going on in our village last week I can’t quite get this recipe exactly right, but if make it & we eat it outside on a nice summer day, it can feel pretty darn close to being in Italy😋
