Seems like there are many advantages of entertaining at home! So, here is home entertaining made easy with 8 complete dinner party menus from around the world. All recipes are included.
Culture and Cuisines from Around the World
One of our goals at Compass & Fork is to make you curious about the culture and cuisines of other countries. Our format of featuring a destination a month is designed to do just that.
We try to explain the culture and history around the food, and feature some of the typical recipes that would be eaten at home.
For those of you following along in your home, you can try the featured cuisine by cooking at home or if visiting a local restaurant in your area. If you are traveling, then we hope to help you understand some of the local culture of the food and find great foods to try.
To put you in the mood, we highlight books, cookbooks and movies about each country.
