Week 40b : Extra special blog news

kosteckishaw_finishedmap

Since I made up the initial list of 52 countries for the blog I have found quite a few extra which started me thinking beyond when the year is finished. I quite liked the idea of doing 80 countries like a modern day gastronomic Phileas Fogg (although his was of course days not foods) and so have I decided that I will aim for 80 cuisines instead of the original 52.

I have looked for extra countries to make sure this is possible and I have managed to scrape together an extra 40 countries to add to the ones I have visited so far. The list includes some less than than exciting places such as Scotland (yes there is a Scottish pub in Berlin), England and Australia which I am not particularly looking forward to but will visit nonetheless for completeness. I will also end up visiting a lot of similar places such as Croatian and Serbian or Iraqi and Syrian. Unfortunately my strict criteria of not allowing fusion means that I won’t be visiting Senegambia the Senegalese Gambian place nor the Azerbaijani-Naples place nor sadly the Malaysian, Hong Kong, Burmese, Singaporian restaurant.

I do however now get to try Ghanian, Togolese and Uruguayan food and am looking forward very much to the next forty weeks of cuisines.I will aim to finish with a crazy German blow out week.
