Olympic Food Challenge
Official Olympic food and drink - McDonald's, Coca Cola, Heineken, Cadburys.
I'll pass thanks.
Instead for this, the Games of the XXX Olympiad, me and several bloggers lead by our fearless leader and creator of this challenge; Ewan Mitchell of Tonight's Menu, are going to eat our way around the world.
Each blogger has been allocated 19 countries and during the Games we have to research, cook and blog something from those 19 countries.
More information can be found at the official blog: http://olympicfoodchallenge.blogspot.co.uk/
Here is the list of countries that I have been allocated:
Trinidad and Tobago
As you can see it's quite an interesting mix, some are quite easy to find a dish from others are a bit more tricky.
I plan to bake a good portion of my countries for several reasons, 1. I like to bake. 2. It gives me some breathing room in case I fall behind with 19 dishes over 19 days which is likely to happen.
If you have any suggestions to what I could cook/bake from any of the countries then feel free to let me know. All suggestions are appreciated
Mr @joolscyprien has already been kind enough to provide a recipe for Jamaican curried ox cheeks
See you at the Olympics
