Have you been dreaming of an international adventure? From the people you meet to the potential for a delicious meal on every table, there’s no shortage of unique countries and cultures to explore.
While vacation plans may not be off the ground just yet, you can still explore a world of culinary delights without leaving the comfort of your own kitchen — or setting your alarm for an early morning flight.
In this blog, we’ll show you how you can sample new and exciting international flavors on a weekly basis.
Explore the cuisine of Mexico
Vibrant colors, refreshing outdoor seating and the bustling noise of a lively community: Welcome to Mexico!
Start your adventure at home by combining Chorizo Ground Sausage or Blended Mild Taco Seasoned Ground Pork with Mushrooms with a handful of other ingredients to whip up some Chorizo Tacos.
Perfect for a busy weeknight, this dish is ready in just under a half hour. Go all out on your culinary adventure and pair these tacos with homemade guacamole or tomatillo salsa — after a long day at your job or school, store-bought options work perfectly as well!
While Mexican food has a reputation for being especially spicy, you can explore a wide range of flavors to create a delicious combination that’s suited to you and your family’s preferences. From garlic and onion to cinnamon and cloves, there’s no shortage of unique spices to experiment with.
Travel to the kitchens of Thailand
Warm air, the aroma of some one-of-a-kind dishes and a tropical breeze: Say “sawasdee” to Thailand with your very own Thai Ramen Noodle Bowl.
Ramen noodles have four primary ingredients: wheat flour, water, salt and kansui, which is the star of this staple of Taiwanese cuisine. As your ramen cooks, the enzymes in the kansui react to the boiling water, giving the noodles their unique stretchy texture and iconic yellow coloring.
The best part about this dish is that once you boil the noodles and cook your pork, it’s the ultimate “choose your own adventure” recipe. You can top your ramen off with just about anything to give your bowl some extra flavor and texture. Some traditional options to try include kimchi, nori (dried seaweed) and furikake seasoning.
For an especially delicious meal, we recommend garnishing your noodles with cilantro, peanuts, bean sprouts and lime.
The world is your culinary playground
No matter which country’s cookbook you decide to visit next, you’ll find plenty of options to spice up your weekly meals.
From Mediterranean Stuffed Zucchini to Pork Shawarma in Pita, cooking for one or the entire family, we’ll show you that you don’t need a passport to explore – just Hatfield and the right inspiration to experience a world of flavor on your table. The adventure starts at home!
