This site isn’t about me. It’s about all of us.

It’s our story – the world’s story – as informed by way of meals.

You see, we create peace after we find out about one another –
after we perceive each other.
However right here’s the factor – we are able to’t create peace alone;
We should set a International Desk and invite everybody to sit down down collectively as one household.

It’s the one approach.

Welcome to International Desk Journey – a celebration of each nation on the earth – a spot the place I share the one factor that unites us and that drives our individuality – meals.  Every week my household and I dive right into a meal from one other nation, studying concerning the meals, attempting recipes, and even sharing videos of my younger daughter sampling the meals (she’ll have eaten a meal from each nation on the earth earlier than her fifth birthday).

It’s the last word stovetop journey expertise.

We’re going A-Z so you possibly can simply bounce in at any time.
Try our schedule for particulars and our map to see where we’ve been.

Somewhat heads up…

This site is a pocket of peace – a spot for optimistic tales and a great deal of recipes – you received’t hear about warfare, famine and devastation. There’s sufficient locations overlaying these points. I’m lifting my voice to unfold the great, the pleased, and the downright foolish. And, sure, there’ll be tidbits about me (I’m Sasha) and my household alongside the way in which – my candy husband Keith (read why we call him Mr Picky), and my pretty little woman, Miss Ava (read how she inspires me).

Even higher, many recipes are full stovetop journey experiences, not solely together with photographs of the meals preparation, however photographs of the nation of origin.

P.S. After I first began this journey I wrote up my causes…. right here they’re…

  1. My cooking is in a deep, not satisfactory rut. Nobody needs to journey on that street anymore, least of all me. Now’s the time to offer my style buds some pleasure! Now’s time to let the gorgeous world encourage me!
  2. My husband’s Choosy Eater Syndrome is in remission because of a lot exhausting work on my half. Nonetheless, I see indicators that it is perhaps rearing its ugly, boring head once more. I’ve a principle that International Desk Journey will remedy him fully of this unhappy illness.
  3. My daughter, seven months previous, deserves to develop up in a family the place creativity, tradition and good meals are priorities.  On a worldwide scale, I would like her to understand the world and respect different cultures; I feel meals is one of the best ways to do that.  Plus, I’m afraid the Choosy Eater Syndrome is perhaps genetic (my step son appears to have an incurable case of it). I feel if Ava eats a wide range of meals from world wide, she’ll have an excellent likelihood at being a very good eater.
  4. Meals in Tulsa. Sure, there are good meals to be had right here, however I miss the number of cuisines I skilled whereas dwelling in Europe. In my six years overseas I sampled dozens of cuisines and none of them used Velveeta! Not even in queso.
  5. I received 45 new French Square spice jars for Christmas. I don’t need to be a kind of those who simply seems to be at their spices for years on finish.  I need to use them earlier than they flip to mud.
  6. I must be having dinner events regularly. I like meals. I like individuals. I even like consuming meals with individuals.  International Desk Journey is a good excuse to carry household and buddies collectively round meals.
  7. Missing the sources to journey the world indefinitely, International Desk Journey will whisk my household away for a mini trip every week. I’m smiling already.
  8. And, lastly, and most significantly, I imagine we create peace after we find out about one another, after we perceive each other. Let’s go eat our approach world wide! 

And if you’d like much more causes, have a hearken to my NPR interview with Studio Tulsa. For thirty minutes I discuss with Wealthy Fisher about why I’m consuming meals world wide and share distinctive “behind the scenes” tales. Get pleasure from!
