International recipes worth trying

Since lockdown started, I have been trying to fill my time with different hobbies and one of my favourites is trying recipes with my boyfriend. Treating the kitchen as a science lab when you want to be creative, it sets your spirit free and suddenly boredom is gone. To make it more challenging, my boyfriend and I decided to try different international recipes, that before we would only dare to try it in a restaurant, not cooking it, but at the end has been a funny and tasty adventure. In case, you want to explore your cooking talents and expand your cuisine to an international dimension, here are the links of our favourites, so far:

3. Olive oil cake – Easy to prepare. I saw this recipe in one of the blogs I follow “View from the Back – Ramblings of a retiree in France” and of course I had to try it. I totally recommend it! It has a lemon zesty flavour that awakes your senses and transports you to a Mediterranean countryside on a sunny morning.
