Purpose of this Resource . . .

Sharing food is a wonderful setting for community gatherings and storytelling. Sharing the foods of distant peoples is a wonderful way to set the stage for learning more about those people and their lives and customs. While we provide this collection of recipes as a "resource" for learning about other cultures, we also invite you to simply enjoy them for what they are!

Some links take you to collections embracing whole continents (such as the Congo Cookbook immediately below), while others take you to collections for specific countries or regions.
