Cookbook Wednesday; The Cookbook of the United Nations

UN Cookbook
With the November kick-off of Cookbook Wednesday, I thought it might be interesting to share some recipes from The Cookbook of the United Nations published in 1970. The decision for today’s share was simple. If there’s one thing that’s pretty obvious about many of the blogs that I visit, it’s that they are a melting pot of cultures from all corners of the world. The foreword in the book may sound a bit outdated but isn’t the principle pretty much the same?
Since ancient times, sharing a meal has bee a traditional and happy way of sharing friendship. The United Nations is founded on the principles and of coming together for the purpose of improving human understanding. A very simple way for each of us to participate in this ideal is to prepare and serve the dishes of other countries in our own homes.
Increased communication among the people of the world, ranging from travel to movies to television, has spurred a tremendous interest in international cuisine.
Restaurants all over the world have helped to introduce us to new culinary delights. In New York and Paris and Tokyo-and scores of other large cities-one can dine out on the specialities of a different country night after night…~Barbara Krauss~

P.S I won't be blogging again until next Cookbook Wednesday. I will be visiting all your delicious blogs during the week though. I just have some things to take care of in the mean time. And, for those of you who remembered I would be getting my numbers this week, let me tell you right now, they are fantastic! Actually, the doctor called them, and I quote, miraculous! I'll be posting about it as soon as I can. Thank you all for your words of encouragement and prayers of kindness. I truly appreciate it. Louise:)
