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.

Greek Cypriot Ttavas

This is a very flexible recipe for beef stew, you can change the proportions of the ingredients if desired and add other vegetables like carrots or courgette.

1 ½ kg beef, in big cubes (can be substituted by rabbit or lamb)
300 gr potatoes, in cubes
150 gr onions, sliced
200 gr tomatoes, sliced (can be substituted by tomato juice)
200 ml olive oil
200 ml red wine
2 bay leaves
ground cinnamon, ground cloves

Put all the ingredients in a big pan in the oven for about two hours and taste if it's done. Leave a bit longer if not yet tender enough.
