Does international food intimidate you?  It doesn’t have to!  Join Laura of The Spiced Life and Amanda of MarocMama every month for an online cooking club.  We’ll focus on one international dish at a time.  One Sunday a month will be chosen to live-tweet under the hashtag #worldkitchen and cook together.  In the following weeks post your recipe live to your blog and link back to this site.  We’ll then pick posts throughout the month to showcase on this site.

A bit about us –  Both raised and living in the Midwestern United States, we’ve chosen to leave the comfort zone of cuddly Midwestern meat and potatoes/salt and pepper food and instead embrace world cuisine and all its’ flavors.  We’re not afraid to feed our kids all of the good things that world cuisine offers and think you should give it a shot too!

Laura: I am a SAHM and food writer in semi-rural southwest Ohio.  I love international food of all kinds and living where I do means if I want it I gotta make it.  I firmly believe there is no such thing as “Kids’ Food” and my kids eat what we eat. I hope you join us as we try different dishes from around the world.

Amanda: I’m a curious, world traveling mom of two busy boys.  I married a Moroccan man and he came with lots of new food needs, for example, real home-cooked food was a must.  It’s been five years but I’ve come to be a whiz in the kitchen and am constantly trying out new recipes, especially perfecting my skills on traditional Moroccan dishes and creating hybrid Moroccan/Middle Eastern cuisine.

    I am totally in love with Turkish food. I had it for the first time, just shy of a year ago, and have been back to the same restaurant at least 6 times! I know it’s similar to Greek, but what nuances make it different? I’m curious and wonder if you could clarify this. How similar is it to Moroccan? My biggest surprise about this cuisine…it’s not spicy (hot) at all! I think this would make a good discussion/ cooking lesson. Count me in!
    Thanks for your consideration. Nanette at
