World on a plate

World on a plate is a blogging cultural exchange. On the last Sunday of the month, bloggers from all over the world get together to interpret a food through the lens of their home country cooking. Each blogger will produce a wonderful dish featuring the food chosen that is typical of her/his home country and will tell us a bit about the dish.

Stay tuned for this month event!

(If you are a food blogger of a not yet represented nation and would like to join in the swap, send me an email at italianinthemidwest[at] gmail[dot] com, or catch me on twitter @ItalianMidwest. We would love to have you!)

    Aw everything looks so delish so far. Would love to join but unfortunately I’m a bit of a mutt (Filipino/Italian living in the midwest US) and do a mish-mash of ethnic influences (seriously – Mexican, Asian, African, South American, etc). I’ll be sure to keep checking back though to see all of the delicious dishes!
