Fårikål is Norway's national dish, and its position was reaffirmed recently in a national vote. It is a deeply simple meal with only six ingredients assuming you count water as an ingredient.
INDONESIA: Nasi Goreng
Something of a taste from my childhood, Nasi Goreng is a staple of Indonesian (and Malaysian and Singaporean) cuisine, spicy fried rice with omelette pieces its a filling dish.
AUSTRALIA: Tomato Relish
An Australian friend of mine was horrified that I'd never heard of, let alone tasted Tomato Relish, a key staple of the Australian diet. Shortly after Christmas (thanks to international postage and general Swedish post delays) I received a Christmas present of two jars of Relish, with some instructions on how best to use them.
TUNISIA: Lamb Couscous
Working from 192 Flavours, I cooked a lamb Tagine with Couscous for my Tunisian international meal.
Using the recipe at The Spruce Eats I made Finnish Karjalanpaisti, a traditional meat stew. Listening to the comments, I added much more seasoning, which helped, but the stew was a fairly thin mix of watery sauce and meats, rather than the thicker red shown in the illustrations.
SPAIN : Paella
The next stop on my culinary world tour is Spanish Paella. As I'm not a seafood fan, I picked a chicken and chorizo recipe from Epicurious.
The sixth meal in my international tour was Romania's Mititei. A Sausage like dish, made with minced lamb, chicken and beef and flavoured with cumin, coriander and thyme, it's a perfect BBQ dish. It needs preparing the evening before but requires little in the way of unusual ingredients.
Goulash is Hungary's national dish, a hearty heavy beef and tomato stew, served with rice and sometimes sour cream it is a great meal in poor weather. It's a favourite of mine when I'm snowboarding.
I've not eaten, or even thought about Stamppot for years, not since I lived in the Netherlands. Its a customised mashed potatoes featuring mustard, bacon, onions and kale (Ideally andijvie, but that can be tough to get outside of the Netherlands.
IRELAND: Irish Stew
Irish Stew is a deeply comforting and hearty meal, with no formally agreed recipe. Most commonly created with lamb or mutton, slow cooked. Almost always with potatoes, carrots and onions, other ingredients are also found.
