Last week I shared my recipe for Beef and Coriander Dumplings with Spicy Chili Oil as a part of the www.thinkbeef.ca “Rethink Beef Global Recipe Swap Campaign”. Bloggers from across the country swapped original recipes featuring beef to showcase its versatility. The recipes needed to reflect our cultural background, or a culinary adventure. A family favourite or a dish that we sampled while traveling that we just couldn’t forget. This week, I made my swap partner’s rendition of moussaka!
I was recently asked by www.thinkbeef.ca to help them show our fellow Canadians how deliciously different, yet uniquely Canadian, our nation’s kitchens are. What makes Canada one of the greatest countries in the world? Besides giving the world hockey and poutine, it’s our multiculturalism and ethnic diversity! It’s in the kitchen, where stories from generations past come alive. Going from all cultural backgrounds, it’s where we create and recreate dishes using a harmonious blend of memories and flavours that connect us with family past and present.
I was challenged to take part in their #RethinkBeef Global Recipe Swap Campaign. Bloggers from across the country swapped original recipes featuring beef to showcase its versatility as well as each blogger’s motivation and inspiration that makes our recipes uniquely Canadian. It needed to reflect our cultural background, or a culinary adventure. A family favourite or a dish that we sampled while traveling that we just couldn’t forget. But it had to hit home. Here’s my recipe Beef and Coriander Dumplings served with Spicy Chili oil!
The holidays are almost here and that can only mean one thing, FOOD! And lots of it! One of the things that I look forward to the most during the holidays is the food. Yeah sure, the people I spend time with are cool too, I guess. If you like to entertain during the holidays (or any other time of year) keep certain go-to recipes in your back pocket for those impromptu gatherings or times when you need to whip up something quickly. One of my favourite recipes can be made in literally less than a minute – restaurant salsa!
