    Ok very excited to start this off with Afghanistan. One of my favorite restaurants in Seattle is Afghani but I've never tried to make anything myself.

    Sign me up for:
    http://afghankitchenrecipes.blogspot.com/2013/02/boulanee-katchalu-patato-filled.html (it looks like there are a lot of Afghani recipes on this blog!)
    http://www.food.com/recipe/afghani-cilantro-chutney-126313

    Also, have you considered sending out a mass message to food.com groupies. I feel like a lot of people would be interested in such a fun event!





    Hi Sofie

    They must be food.com recipes for the game to work, so for now I'll mark in the chutney. Would you mind doing a search for the first item and seeing if there is a version on here for you to make and review? If not, feel free to submit it yourself to make (just put a review in the thread)

    Cheers.


    Thanks for the advice! I'll definitely do that.

    One more question. I reviewed Albanian White Bean Soup (Jani Me Fasule) two months ago (I must have been subconsciously getting ready for this tour!) Can it count for this purpose or should I find another Albanian recipe?



    Hi Sofie

    Ok, finally on a pc and able to give you a decent answer.

    No, I won't mark off a tag for something made in the past. If you want to make it again I'll accept that (such as in the case of Sharon above).

    This game is about making national and significant dishes. We're not setting out to do what ZWT does and have people need to meet a minimum requirement for each round, so it doesn't matter if you can't make a recipe for every country, so long as you complete any tags you do submit.

    Please DO feel free to check out the menus (they're the hyperlinks in the first couple of posts) where our amazing menu masters have carefully broken up the recipes into categories.

    If you don't like a national or significant dish, no worries, you're still more than welcome to cook something else from that country and tell us about it, but the main goal is to make the national dish.


    Hope that helps.


    Thanks for clarifying! that sounds fair. I know I don't NEED to make a recipe from every country but I WANT to! I'll look for another one



    No worries, I hope you enjoy yourself

    By the way, back to work for me, so I haven't updated menu links, but updated menus can be found under this account. I will come back later and finish tidying up.

    Oh my, I've made my first recipe from this tag game and it's sensational.

    First cab off the rank was GiddyUpGo's Lemon Salad (Angola) #466885.

    While it's supposed to be an Angolan recipe, I think it's been brought to
    Angola by the Portuguese. Much of Angola is too hot to grow fennel, but I'm
    sure it can be grown in the south, which has an actual winter.

    Don't ask me to tell you about the time hubby got lost when camping in
    the cold in Angola and was wearing only his underpants. rotfl.gif

    I thank you Satyne for organising this event and I thank GiddyUpGo for
    this recipe. If no other recipe catches my fancy, this one sure does.
    Delicious and flawless. Yummo!



    rotfl.gif That sounds like a story worth hearing, Peggy! Spill it!! icon_lol.gif

    I didn't know that Angola got cold. I'm waiting to see if I'm called in to work today. If not, I may actually get some free time to research a bit. icon_wink.gif

    I was going to make this recipe, tweak it, then post it, but apparently posted it already, so here it is, but making it today(hopefully) and will make corrections if necessary. If you make it, I'm open for suggestions on improving it. Vegetarian Escudella (Andorra) #499904

    Does this one fit Albania in terms of it being a National dish?

    I think my Chicken Kabuli (Murgh Kabuli) is Afghan, as I noted in the recipe's intro
    when I posted the recipe a couple of years ago. The recipe is from an
    Indian cookbook, but the word Kabuli refers to Kabul, which is the capital
    of Afghanistan.

    Yonks ago, I did public relations for the University of Nebraska at Omaha (NE).
    At the time UNO hosted two important international centres -- for Afghanistan and
    the Sudan. Lots of students from both places attended the uni and there
    were big exchanges of faculty too. The programs were called the Center for
    Afghan Studies and the Center for Sudanese Studies. I've always
    regretted not going to Afghanistan when I had the chance.

    I went to the Sudan in 1977 and the locals knew of Nebraska and the program.
    I spent all of 2009 in Africa and met Afghan and Sudanese people who
    knew of both programs, which sadly no longer exist.

    I often think about how much these programs helped to create greater
    connections across cultures, and I wish that there were more.

    P.S. Will share the underpant story soon. Need to check some details.

    We should remember that national dishes can be precise or imprecise!
    More often than not, they are regional. What's an American national dish?
    So I reckon we can cook recipes that rise to the surface from any culture.
    Google is helpful in that it highlights the most popular search results.

    By the way, I found this nice site listing national dishes:

    Now That's Nifty

    They list:

    Afghanistan = Qabili Palau

    Albania = Tave Kosi; Byrek Shqipetar me Perine

    Algeria = Couscous

    Andorra = Escudella

    Angola = Muamba Galinha

    I'll update first post in a few hours, in the mean time, links have been updated using the new menus. Still need to do some tidying up for you, but they'll all be broken up into categories to help decide what to make and I'm also trying to mark them in the menu which ones are player submitted.

    Have fun!
