With all this talk of what the Embassy Chefs will be serving at tomorrow night’s challenge, I thought it would be helpful to share what diplomats are serving in their own homes. Not for fancy pancy Embassy dinners (actually as diplomats and spouses, we get invited to remarkably few of those – little known fact). This is more about what’s on the menu when we get together amongst ourselves, fellow diplomat to fellow diplomat when we’re actually not being diplomats. Some of the menus might surprise you!
Also, for today and tomorrow, I added a fun poll in the upper right hand corner of the blog – if you were tasting food from the embassies listed, where would you run towards first? I’ll take your guidance and start there tomorrow night!
I will make my usual homemade bread and hummus, and classic chicken mirabella. If you make chicken mirabella, you’re house will smell superb. And probably apple crisp or tart with homemade whipped cream. Amy, MOSCOW, Russia. The Crafy Foreign Service
I have a few go-to meals that I have perfected for company, such as Matt Lauer’s Chicken Marabella, chili for casual groups, or tacos. SANTO DOMINGO, Dominican Republic. The BFiles Blog.
