international cuisineWant to spice up your summer? Literally?

Cook up international flavors using recipes from epicurious.com, a website “for people who love to eat”. Its international section is filled with recipes inspired by different regions of the world!

Here are a couple of the individual recipes you’ll find:
Madeleines with Lavender Honey (cake-like cookies)
Grilled Lamb and Fig Skewers with Mint-Pepper Glaze and Grilled Eggplant

The site allows users to save their favorite dishes to a “recipe box” for future cooking endeavours. That way you can make up your own worldly feast! If you’d like, you can take epicurious’ menu suggestions—for example:

Light African-Inspired Feast
• Grilled Halibut with Grilled Red Pepper Harissa
• North African Cracked Wheat Salad
• Riesling*
• Chocolate Torte
*Most recipes come with suggestions for beverage accompaniments (such as the Riesling above), so all the guess work is taken out of the equation.

Epicurious.com also features a “recipe swap forum” for tips from people like you! So what are you waiting for?

Get cooking!
