Our Growing Edge – July 2016 Intro


July edition of Our Growing Edge is hosted by Sophie at Cooking Trips. The theme this month is “Travel”.


I am lucky to have travelled to some delicious destinations and have collected precious food memories. For me, food is an important part of travel and I love exploring other cuisines while expanding my growing edge.

Some memorable meals include:

  • Late night takoyaki made fresh to order out of a van in a deserted parking lot in Osaka, Japan
  • Our first larb in Laos from this random restaurant in the middle of nowhere just on the border of Vietnam and Laos
  • Killing and eating a snake at a snake restaurant in Hanoi, Vietnam

I have so many more food memories I want to collect but it’s nice to be able to travel to faraway places by recreating dishes at home.

I hope this month’s travel theme inspires you to cook something from your travels or something from a place you would like to travel to. Because there’s nothing quite like falling in love with places you’ve yet to visit.

Some ideas you could try this month:

  • Cook something from memory from your travels
  • Host a tropical themed potluck
  • Cook something from a place you would love to visit
  • Recreate a dish from your favourite ethnic eatery
  • Try a new restaurant that serves food from your travels
  • Make an exotic dessert
  • Attend a cooking class based on the cuisine of a country you would like to visit
  • Take a classic recipe and adapt it to reflect flavours from your travels
  • Make a cocktail inspired by a holiday

  3. I agree that eating different cuisines is an important part of exploring others cultures. Great article though, I may have to try holding a tropical party. We have so many friends in Tooting that are from different countries.
