193 Recipes: Cooking My Way Around the World

 
 
Cook one dish from each country around the world. 
 
This is my personal challenge. What better way to get to know the variety of cultures and cuisines on our planet than by cooking a dish from each country?
 
There are no timelines, and no target dates. This is a challenge, but it’s also meant to be fun. “Every country” is a fuzzy concept, and somewhat controversial, but I decided to use the United Nation member states list as my benchmark. I’ll update the count + link the recipes below as I work my way through this list. Here are my guidelines for the challenge.

P.S. This is inspired in large part by Chris Guillebeau’s “Every Country In The World” challenge. He travelled the world, and I’m cooking 193 recipes from the comfort of my own home, so his version is far more ambitious. But the spirit of adventure and enthusiasm for the world is shared.
