From Finland. Main course must be extremely deligtfull - Sautéed reindeer (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Saut%C3%A9ed_reindeer)
(swedish version is nowhere near as good as ours!)

Entree or desert... Something around cloudberry (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rubus_chamaemorus) maybe?

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

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:

http://a8.sphotos.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-ash4/294476_4440942103148_219124477_n.jpg

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.

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.

If you want easy and French, you could make:

Ratatouille. Fairly easy, just cook all vegetables separately.

And Moules-Frites. Mussels and fries. Can't get easier than that.

Ratatouille is delicious, but you didn't include any dessert recipes. I recommend Tarte Tatin. It's easy to make and delicious.

He said entree and main or main and dessert. I would include tarte tatin too if I were to include a dessert.

-truita d'espàrrecs: you pick up green asparaguses from the country, and make an omelette with them. delicious.

-pa amb tomàquet: very easy, n very typical catalan meal. you slice the bread, cut a tomato, and brush its contents on the bread. add olive oil n salt. there you go!
