Touring from the Home Kitchen

Tim and Stephanie in Bruges

If you’ve listened to the podcast over the last few months, you know that Stephanie and I have been doing what we were calling “The Country Spinner.” The Country Spinner is a randomizer in the form of a “wheel of fortune” that we added all the countries of the world, according to the CIA World Fact Book.

Stephanie and I love to travel and our favorite things to do when we travel are to take in the culture of where we are and take in as much of the cuisine as possible. The pandemic put a huge kibosh on those travels. I have also been taking on more cooking at home.  So, we decided to find another way, or ways, to get our fix for world culture and cuisine.

We spin the wheel and whatever country it lands on, we do cultural research, learn something about the country, and come up with recipes “inspired” by the cuisine of the country.

We have been “through” three countries so far, and there are many more to come. I will post about those countries, some facts about each, and recipes that we made as we have gone along here. We spend an average of two weeks (not necessarily at once) in each country.

The first country we spun was Mauritius. Look for that coming soon.

I hope you enjoy the “travels” as much as we did.
