If you have a chef that you like, maybe get one of their cookbooks and work your way through it kind of like the movie "Julie and Julia" where a woman cooked every recipe in a Julia Child cookbook. It might be fun to find a "vintage" cookbook and try older recipes too.

Welcome to DC!

Don't stop with one dish from a country, embrace the whole cuisine! Life is short, get to it!

What did you from Sweden? I just wonder..
I would say learn more about cuisines that are not "posh" enough to end up in cooking magazines.

You might be interested in this. This woman cooked a meal from every country alphabetically and documented it on her website. There are great stories and photos, too.

Her daughter was a baby, I think, when she started. She has videos of her daughter trying new things and helping prepare things when she got older - so cute

thats part of the reason im doing it so my son can explore more food as english food is dull in comparison to other countries, he is 2.5 yrs old and he helps me cook it all he loves using the american cups and spoons to measure things. found out the other day he likes chilli powder after he decided to lick a sppon of it then said i like that mummy bit strange lol.
