Ah, Croatia… Been there many times as a child, my grandmother was born in the then-Austro-Hungarian Empire, which now is the northeast of Croatia, eaten Croatian food countless times, so I was really looking forward to this one! Instead of usually doing research for what recipes there are for a country, I put [...]
Unless you are Korea, you can find some sort of bread in every country, which is the beauty of it. They will have different meats, different vegetables or different spices, but they will have bread (unless you are Korea, that is). The fact that bread also is something that has a way [...]

(March 16, 2014) When you think of Iceland, what do you think of? Glaciers, geothermal wells, volcanoes and – puffins! Nico decided that puffins were his favourite animals (for at least three days!), so we wanted to dig [...]
(March 16, 2014) If anyone would have told us that two years into “Around the World in 12 Dishes” we would still be cooking and baking away, we would have been very happy and also a little skeptical. After all two years are a big deal in [...]
Welcome to season 3 of “Around the World in 12 Dishes”. 24 countries in, we are still going strong!
The principle still is the same, though, our journey around the world, visiting a different country every month, cooking at least one dish together with our children and learning [...]
Don’t panic – we got bannock!
(February 5, 2014) Canada – our home country and how much more Canadian can you get than going native Canadian? We have had bannock before on a native reserve here right next to Calgary, but it is fried, so we had a [...]
(February 4, 2014) Where is our Peruvian bread, you ask? Well, we did find a few that looked interesting, such as the Pan de Chancay or the Pan de Papa, but if you have a four year old with the attention span of a bumblebee, breads that have to rest [...]
(February 3, 2014) Yah-man – we are traveling to Jam-eh-ca (must be Canadian, no?) and having ourselves some festivals! No, we are not celebrating or partying, but one of the Caribbean island’s favourite snacks, which often are served either as a dessert or as a side with some ackee and saltfish or many [...]
Thailand, land of the Thai… No, not a good opening. A lot of Thai recipes contain peanuts and peanut butter, which just happens to be some of Nico’s favourites. Add to that chicken, his favourite protein, and we have a potential winner at our hands, right? So we thought, too, and embarked on our [...]
Korea has been the biggest case of stumpedness since we started out “Around the World in 12 Dishes”. As you probably know, we’ve set ourselves the challenge to bake a bread for every country we “visit”, and with Korea hit the proverbial brickwall. A friend of mine [...]
