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.

Costa Rican Ceviche


Ingredients: (serves 4 as lunch or starter)
1 kg of "white fish", cut into cubes
1 cup (250 ml) of fresh squeezed lemon or lime juice
1 (red)onion, finely diced
handful of cilantro (coriander leaves) chopped
2 teaspoons of salt

2 stalks of celery, finely diced
1 red bell pepper, finely diced
1 small chili, seeded and finely diced
mayonaise and/or ketchup

Marinade the fish in the lemon juice and the rest of the ingredients. Put in fridge and stir after an hour or so, then let sit for up few hours so the flavors can blend.
The fish will be "cooked" by the acid lemon juice.
Looks pretty with the chopped cilantro strewn over the salad. Can be served with some mayonaise to make it more creamy, and/or ketchup to taste.
