The Plan!

Living in the leafy suburbs of Cheshire has its advantages, but living close to a range of international restaurants is not one of them.

One of our meals was at an amazing restaurant, Pasha, in Camberwell, London (http://www.pashahotel.co.uk/pasha-restaurant-pasharestaurant-2.html) which serves food from Kyrgyzstan – a country which, I’ll be honest, I’d never even heard of. Inspired by this foray into world cuisine, I set myself a challenge of cooking a meal from every country of the world. I’m not giving myself a time limit for this as I’d rather enjoy the experience rather than rush so it may take some time.
