A Friendly Reminder

The highly anticipated Regional Recipes: Scandinavia round-up is now available for public consumption! Go check it out! Thanks so much to Joanne of Eats Well with Others for hosting and to the participants for their submissions!

For the next region, Joanne has chosen Cuba! I'm not very familiar with Cuban food, so this is going to fun and challenging for me. I'm hosting this time, so send submissions to me at blazinghotwok(at)gmail(dot)com by November 15th. Hope you will participate!

really interesting and funny to see the scandinavian round-up. not much authentic scandinavian cooking though. yours is right on, and the tea ring and janssons fristelse, but what's up with all the pasta, and the rullepølse? :-) but who am i to complain, when i didn't even make anything for it.

looking forward to cuba, lene and i went to a reallly good cuban restaurant when we were i barcelona this summer. yum!

Lars, there just aren't enough Scandinavian food bloggers and even less who reach an audience outside the region. Start a Scandinavian food blog in english to spread the word because it's really funny when a half Asian chick who didn't even grow up anywhere near DK is the only one on the internet preaching the virtues of curried pickled herring and makeral guf :-)

i know, and have often considered 'going english'. only problem is time, and i can do it in danish in half the time :-( to reach a broader audience i would probably even have to correct measurements into cups and lbs and so on... even more time. but if someone wanted to pay me to do it, that's a different story. mayby i should apply for a grant :-) there's actually being invested a lot of money in marketing nordic cuisine in the rest of the world.

Lars, although you're super duper fluent in English, I understand it still takes more time than doing it in your native language. And let's face it, time is money. As for measurements, I wouldn't even bother converting. I might be the only American to say this but THE METRIC SYSTEM IS BETTER!
