A 7 Year Old’s Challenge: World Food Month

I’m not sure quite what I’ve let myself in for.  I’ve long been encouraging my 7-year-old to be more adventurous with his food and all of a sudden he seems to be embracing the idea. Which is fabulous.

Kind of.

He’s asked me whether he can try foods from different countries – which is great – I’m all for expanding his horizons. He was amazed to find that a lot of the food we eat actually originates from different countries “Really mummy? Pasta isn’t from England?”. He’s taken this one step further that I was planning on though. Yesterday when he got home from school he spent half an hour quietly writing me a tick-sheet to stick on the fridge with all the different countries he could think of.

Food list

The countries seem to be a mixture of places we’ve been on holiday and the Formula 1 calendar. Again, no complaints. Until I realised I was going to have to make food from countries I know very little about. National dish of Abu Dhabi anyone?

We’ve ticked off the easiest countries so far: Italy (pasta), England (roast chicken on Sunday), Greece (a great slow-cooker Kleftico recipe which I must get round to posting) and Hungary (spelled Hungry: Goulash).

I’ve been tasked with cooking French tonight (Chicken Chasseur – bless you slow-cooker) but goodness only knows what I’ll cook for some of the other nights. Monaco for goodness sake? *sigh*

Suggestions for ANY of the countries off this list would be very welcome. I’ve been tasked with Germany tomorrow and I’m not sure he’d like Sauerkraut…

    Definitely believe that which you said. Your favorite reason appeared to be on the web the easiest thing to be aware of.
    I say to you, I certainly get irked while people think about worries that they plainly do not know about.
    You managed to hit the nail upon the top as well as defined out the whole thing without having side effect , people
    could take a signal. Will probably be back to get more.
