When you think of holidays and exploring the world, what comes to mind may be traveling. With economic liberalisation and bilateral diplomacy, world tourism has flourished drastically over the past decade. There are many reasons for people to go on a world tour.
Kitchens are made for bringing people together for tasting the best memories of life that last long.TIWIWer
Some choose to experience the history and culture, some undertake visits to natural wonders of the world, while some want to meet new people and learn more about the way of life. Whatever is the driver behind the trip, enjoying local food delicacy remains as an integral part of tourism.
World tourism also had led to cuisines crossing the boundaries. Mexican Paella, Italian Pasta, American Burgers, German Sausages are well embraced by Eastern world and Thai Tom Yum, Indian Tikka Masala, Korean Kinchi, Chinese Hotpot are loved by the Western world.
qOne of the biggest impacts of pandemic has been disrupting people’s plan to travel around the world. We are craving to cross borders and experience something new and different. The world awaits tourism to get back to its normalcy, which appears to be still a couple of years away.
Bring the world to your Kitchen
As we are starting to regain some of our time again and looking to do activities with our friends and family wouldn’t it be fun to take a culinary tour around the world right from our own kitchens! Why not take dinner and turn it into a full experience with music, food, drink, games and of course, dressing up in festive attires.
Begin the journey with a little research. Find out local favorites or popular must haves of the region and pull out recipes. We can also look into what drinks pair the best with the region. Get on to on line or off-line shopping cruise to buy signature ingredients you may need for specific recipes. Search for favorite group activities – games, dance, watching a sport etc. and build the playlist of the classics and trending music from the region.
Few few key things to remember though; if you haven’t cooked these dishes before, do a dry run before your guests arrive to figure out the proper ingredients and cooking times. Include your guests in the cooking and split activities between appetizers, mains, desserts and drinks. Make sure to have a lot of fun with any region you choose.
- Recreating a trip to the UK may include cooking Fish and Chips, Meat Pies and Strawberries and Cream with the a playlist for the nights music from the Beatles to One Direction to include everyone’s favorites (include plenty of Oasis for the 90’s kids!).
