I enjoy cooking. I don’t do it every night; in fact I usually just cook on Monday night for the week ahead, then maybe something special on the weekend. But I try to do something new each time and keep broadening my horizons. Until now, I got the vast majority of my recipes from AllRecipes.com. It’s a great place to find relatively simple and good dishes that a lot of people have tried and enjoyed.
But recently I’ve been looking for a bit more of a challenge. So after perusing Epicurious.com, I stumbled upon their ongoing series “Around the World in 80 Dishes.” Intrigued, I started watching the various videos which demonstrated how to make each. Most were dishes I hadn’t made or even tried and many looked like a good challenge to stretch my abilities. So I’m gonna see how many of ‘em I can knock out over the next year or so. Nothing as formal or involved as Julie & Julia, but admittedly similar.
