Re: What are 2 good recipes from a country

For UK if you want something not too difficult you could try
entree: Yorkshire pudding
main: Fish and chips
desert: Sticky toffee pudding

From Finland. Main course must be extremely deligtfull - Sautéed reindeer
(swedish version is nowhere near as good as ours!)

Entree or desert... Something around cloudberry maybe?

edit: I recommend Cloudberry surprise. So whats the surprise? There are no cloudberries in it! (Monty Pythonist forever, sorry kids )

Re: What are 2 good recipes from a country

Being a hard core food addict, I can give you thousands of ideas but prefer to just stick with standard American fare:


for dinner, good steak smothered in gravy & onions:







for dessert, watermelon salad:


America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves.

Re: What are 2 good recipes from a country

Afghan dishes :

Main Dish:
Lawang - Turmeric braised chicken on yogurt sauce. Lots of turmeric, cilantro, garlic and onions in this one, which can also me made with lamb.



Dessert:
Halwa e Zardak - Rosewater and cardamon flavoured carrot pudding
The carrots are slow cooked in milk, cream, sugar, cardamom and rosewater with a final addition of pistachios and almonds. It can be served hot or cold.


Soup:
Aush - Chicken broth with noodles, chick peas and kidney beans; add ground beef seasoned with coriander and paprika, and plain yogurt to the bowl. The three elements remain separate until just before serving.

Re: What are 2 good recipes from a country

Anctartica: ice



No seriously, Spain's food is superb, but if I had to pick 2 dishes it would be paella and asturian bean stew

The belief that man is an irresolute creature pulled this way and that by two forces of equal strength, alternately winning and losing the battle for his soul; the conviction that human life is nothing more than an uncertain struggle between heaven and hell; the faith in two opposed entities, Satan and Christ - all this was bound to engender those internal discords in which the mind, excited by the incessant fighting, stimulated as it were by the constant promises and threats, ends up by giving in and prostitutes itself to whichever of the two combatants has been more obstinate in its pursuit. Life isn't black and white, it's gold.

Re: What are 2 good recipes from a country

italians meals are pretty different since a whole menu would have an entree-1st dish, 2nd with side dish and dessert
two suggestions can be:
meat menu

entree: bresaola/smoked ham rolls with a cream of brie and rocket

1st dish: white-wine rice flan on a bed of zucchini

2nd dish: flambed fillet with gorgonzola cheese and brandy


fish:
entree: salmon rolls with cottencheese and chieve

1st dish: spaghetti with seafood, zucchini and zafferan
(no pic for those sorry)
2nd dish: tunafish tartare


for both:
dessert: soft and warmhearted chocolate flan with raspbarries sauce:


i'm a decent cook, if you need any of those recepie just PM me

may your choices reflect your hopes not your fears.

A Finnish friend of mine made that for me recently. She made potato salad, with cured reindeer deli meat and rye bread as a starter.

Re: What are 2 good recipes from a country

Colombian cuisine is rich and diverse, thanks to geographical variety, a tropical climate, and the influence of many immigrant populations.

Ajiaco:Chicken soup like mom used to make it. It includes chicken, two (preferably three) kinds of potatoes, corn, sour cream, capers, avocado and guasca. Guasca is a special herb that grown throughout the Americas and gives the soup its distinct flavour.



Ingredients: Serves: 12Yield: 12 cups Units: US | Metric 1 whole chicken, cut up 1 medium onion, chopped 1 bunch fresh cilantro, chopped 1 medium white radish (optional) 1 carrot, peeled and chopped 1/2 cup green peas 3 ears corn, cut in fourths 3 lbs yukon gold potatoes, peeled and cut in large dice 2 lbs russet potatoes, peeled and cut in large dice 4 tablespoons cream salt Directions: 1 Place all ingredients, except cream and cilantro, in a large stockpot or dutch oven, and cover with 10 cups of water; cook about 30 minutes until chicken is tender but not falling off the bone, adding additional water as needed to maintain a soup consistency. 2 Stir in cilantro and cream.

2 tablespoons to 1/4 cup sugar (or brown sugar)
1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt

Heat coconut milk in a 2 quart heavy-bottomed saucepan over high heat until simmering.

Add rice, sugar (more or less to taste), and salt. Increase heat to medium and cook, stirring constantly until rice grains begin to turn translucent and golden, about 2 minutes. Add raisins (if using) and stir to combine.
