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.

Burkina Faso Chicken Gizzards

Ingredients: (serves 4)
500 g of chicken gizzards
2 large onions, chopped finely
3 cloves of garlic, chopped finely or crushed

Cut the gizzards in halves if your butcher has not done that for you already. Marinate for half an hour or longer in a bowl with equal amounts of oil and vinegar (about 4 tablespoons each) and the chopped onions and garlic. Add salt.
Put the contents of the bowl in a frying pan and fry till done. About 10 minutes. Serve the gizzards hot with boiled rice on the side.

I might actually try this. I don't tend to eat meat, but for some reason, this sounds kind of good.
