World in Your Kitchen


Review by Debbie Mazo

Food is the universal language. Not only does food nourish our body, it also helps us to understand ourselves and others within a cultural context.

If you're looking for some culinary culture, then check out the World in Your Kitchen (WYK) dedicated to presenting the best in ethnic and international cooking.

Stop into the kitchen and you'll find a rich collection of international recipes available with a handy archive search. Using a clickable map of the world, you can virtually connect to the best in cooking around the world.

Click on South America and you'll find highlights of this region's exotic dishes, including the cuisine of the Amazon Basin in Brazil which blends Native and Portuguese flavors using nuts, fruits, and fish.

If you need help putting your international meal together, an index of cooking tips can show you the way with seasoned advice from some of the masters. For those who love to travel but don't have the cash, you'll always be able to find a seat on one of the site's cuisine cyber tours.

Currently, WYK has about a dozen choices that let you sample both the cuisine and culture of various countries. For a culinary adventure, travel to Spain for a typical Spanish meal of Calimari and fried potatoes or stir up a festive Egyptian dessert of bread and butter pudding known as Omm 'Ali. Find the recipe for Omm 'Ali (Egyptian Bread and Butter Pudding) at https://touregypt.net/recipes/ommal.htm.

To become part of the world food community, visit the Cooking Forum where you'll find that the chat room is open 24 hours a day with a scheduled chat each Monday. Looking for a recipe or just wanting to share one of your favorites, then leave a message in the Recipe Request forum.

If you're a frequent visitor, you can always become a member and enjoy the weekly recipe newsletter and other WYK news, guaranteed to keep you in touch with your fellow citizens of the global village.
