The next destination in our “Around the World In 12 Dishes” travel is Australia.
If you mention Australia the first things that come to my mind are Kangaroos and “Home And Away”. So it was such fun exploring more of this far away and interesting country. A few months ago we got a parcel from Australia with lots of lovely souvenirs and interesting information in it. I didn`t know pavlova was so popular over there.. I love pavlova but I have managed to burn it three times while trying to bake it so I thought of baking Anzac biscuits instead. These biscuits are basically rolled oat biscuits I have done many times…but in my recipe there is no golden syrup and coconut. Our Anzac biscuits turned out so good ( I especially loved the taste of syrup) I made another batch the next day..
Later in the evening Lil Mermaid drew a pretty picture of a kangaroo and a colourful bird :)
And now the official part :)
Welcome to “Around The World in 12 Dishes”. We will be taking you on a journey around the world, (loosely) following in Phileas Fogg’s footsteps, exploring 12 different countries with our children, by cooking 12 dishes with them. One for each country visited.
The world is such a wonderfully diverse and colorful place. Our children see maps, flags and books. They see postcards and maybe they see films about the world.. but let’s really bring it to life through food! Taste and smell don’t often get explored, we think this would be wonderfully fun and interesting for you and your children.
Not only is it an exciting and different way to learn about cultures, but cooking with children brings a host of benefits – from numeracy to science. How can you beat that?
Adventures In Mommydom, Creative Family Fun, Domestic Goddesque, Glittering Muffins, Juggling with Kids, Kitchen Counter Chronicles, Mermaids’ Makings, Mom 2 Posh Little Divas, Montessori Tidbits, Mummymummymum, The Educators’ Spin On It and The Usual Mayhem have come together to help you on your food journey and will each cook a dish with our children and post about it – to help inspire you to have a go! Then go out there, cook, blog, and join in the linky fun! Check out the other great posts as well!
We had started our journey the same way Phileas Fogg did in London, UK, and Stockholm, Sweden continued on to Moscow in Russia. Now our next stop is New Delhi, capital of the exotic sub-continent of India!
