Be A World Wide Chef Right At Home

Updated on October 13, 2014

The Chef At Home Go Abroad

Cooking can be an exciting culinary adventure. No longer are our palates confined to the traditional dishes our mothers and grandmothers used to cook.

Today, the world is a much smaller place with faster and easier travel. More and more people are going to places they had only read of in books to see the culture and to taste the food.

Today, well known dishes from across the world can just as easily be prepared in our very own kitchens.

Instead of the usual kitchen gadgets, present the chef at home with a whole new world of cooking with these gifts from the different continents of the world.This will be the best gift for the adventurous chef.

Culinary Gifts From The Continents Of The World.

I have attempted to introduce gifts to get started on that global culinary adventure.

Just simple ideas to start with.

Try cooking up a storm with gifts from Europe, the Asian continent, Africa and the Americas.

There are recipe books, the basic cooking utensils and sauces just a click away to begin that gastronomic exploration around the world in your very own kitchen.

Cooking Moroccan Style

Moroccan cuisine is a mix of Arab, Berber, Moorish, Middle Eastern, Mediterranean and African influences.

A tagine is a type of dish named after the special pot in which it is cooked.

Tagines in Moroccan cuisine are stews braised at low temperatures resulting in tender meat with aromatic vegetables and sauce.

Moroccan tagines often combine lamb or chicken, vegetables and fruit with an assortment of seasonings which can be Moroccan spices, French, Italian or whatever suits the dish. They can be served with bread, rice or couscous (a Moroccan specialty).

Some tagine recipes

Stew With A Tagine

A tagine is essentially an oven and a slow-cooker and can be used in the oven and on top of the stove and then brought to the table for serving.

Authentic Mexican Cuisine

Mexican cuisine is known for its intense flavors, colorful presentation and unique spicing.

We are all familiar with Tex Mex cuisine with its nachos which incidentally are very rarely eaten in Mexico.

Mexican cuisine can be very varied due to the influence of the Mayan and Aztec Indians to the French and Spanish settlers.

Burritos,tortillas and enchiladas, tamales and tacos are some of the more commonly known Mexican foods.
