In April 2014, we did a mega marathon with Indian Food Odyssey, covering 30 Indian States.
This September we will be embarking on a journey “Around the world in 30 days, with International ABC Cooking.
Yes, this time the Mega Marathon will be an ABC Cooking based on countries, and we have a choice of selecting whichever country starting with the alphabet to cook from. The surprise element here is, none of us reveal which country we are cooking until the posting day!
The list of countries can be referred from here, here and here. The only exception to this rule is for alphabet X and W. Since there is no country starting with X and very limited choice for W, we have decided to use a city, starting with letter X. However, the catch is, the country used can’t be used for the same letter. For example, if the X city is from China, then China cannot be used for the alphabet C.
This is the only clause, otherwise the dish can be a national dish, can be any course, be paired or single. The choice is all yours! Try to be as authentic or close to the original dish, as possible. Fusion or deviating from the original ingredients used, is accepted only based on dietary, unavailability etc.
Below is the logo created for the edition. I will be sending in the codes required once the signup is closed.
