Around the World in 80 Recipes

This site was created for those who would like to recreate the meals I have written about in the "Around the World in 80 Meals" site. ( On that site, I describe the meals that are cooked for me by people from many different cultures...I enjoy eating those meals and I hope to shed a more positive light on the multicultural society in the Netherlands.

I'm Dutch/American, 29 years old, and love getting to know new people and new cultures. Plus I enjoy a good meal! So what better way to combine these interests than through this blog? The idea is to talk to my hosts about what role food plays in their life, who taught them how to cook, what differences they see between local (food) culture and their own, etc. I started out in the Netherlands, but continued the project after my move to the UK in 2007.

Romanian Salată de vinete (aubergine dip)

Romanian Salată de vinete (aubergine dip)

2 big aubergines (eggplants)
1 small onion
2 tablespoons of mayonaise
olive oil

Grill the aubergines in the oven, on the barbecue or on the fire on your stove. The skin should become completely black all around. This will take about 20 minutes.
Let cool and then peel of the blackened skin. Chop into big pieces and let excess liquid drain out in a colander or on a wooden cutting board.
Then chop very finely and add a very finely chopped onion. You can also do this with a blender.
Add the oil, salt, pepper and mayonaise to taste and serve with (pita) bread or chips or as a side dish.
