International Recipes; Even if You Don’t Like to Cook!
While I’d rather be traveling, or photographing, or web designing, or writing than cooking, I do get inspired to cook from time to time. And what usually inspires me is either trying a new international recipe — or dessert of any kind!
While I don’t have too many recipes here het, I hope and plan to start adding more in the near future.
The travel-inspired recipes I include are listed here because they are something I’ve made and come back to again and again and, if I’ve found out how to make them, they must not be too difficult!
You might also fine a few recipes here from time to time that are very loosely travel-inspired. But every cuisine started somewhere, right?

Dia de Los Muertos, or Day of the Dead, is a Mexican celebration to honor and remember departed loved ones. Colorful sugar skulls are a common part of the occasion. Here’s how to make these colorful skulls (note: this is a craft recipe; you probably don’t want to eat these.)
This recipe was inspired by many things: digging clams in the Pacific Northwest and a recipe from the Frugal Gourmet cookbook, the mussels I ate in a restaurant on Loch Linnhe in Scotland (I haven’t quite approached their amazingness), French Clams Bordelaise. Fortunately steaming shellfish with wine is easy; it’s now made even easier by the Instant Pot!
If you’re stuck at home, but you have flour and yeast in your cupboard, have a baking stone and an oven, this is a very easy method for making crusty rustic loaves…or pizza dough…in your home oven.
Here’s the rest of the (prior) excerpt:
Who doesn’t love a crusty baguette? This is the first of some recipes inspired by places I’ve been — this one I’m relocating from another site I have that I don’t plan to keep up — so why not start posting some (at least loosely) travel-related recipes? While these may not be exactly like the ones you’d get in la boulangerie, they are good and super-easy to make.
Your area to save recipes for later, plan for meals. It’s your personal recipe box!
Do you have a travel-inspired recipe you’d like to share?

We can’t include all international recipes we receive, but if we like (or think we would like) your recipe, we may publish it in an upcoming post.
