Wow the world is our oyster when it comes to cooking, we have access to all foods from across the world as transportation and storage has developed.
To think England had not seen a Banana until Herbalist, Botanist and Merchant Thomas Johnson displayed a bunch in his shop in Holborn, in the City of London, on 10th April 1633. (389 years ago)
We can now source anything.
As the world opened up through transportation, so did migration and communication.
With the wide variety of food we now have access to, come a wider variety of recipes. People have created recipe books of recipes passed down by generations, recipes of developmentation and mishaps.
We all have our favourite recipes and they are not often of the same style...
All countries have their own cuisine.
We can lose hours foraging around the internet and books looking for new recipes, ideas and inspiration...
But often we are drawn back to our trusty favourites that often are pasted down generation to generation.
What are your favourite recipes...
