Regional Discretion

Wow, this is going to be an interesting year.  Just looking over a couple maps to come up with these regions (and the subsequent quick n dirty Google searches to see if they even *have* traditional food) has granted me a glimpse of foresight into what could be a very enlightening and eye-opening year. 

So first up, here's my list, in alphabetical order.  I've searched the wide webs for blogs about cooking within each general region, preferably with a humanitarian bent to them, and found a few.  I'll likely add more when I come to the actual week.  If you host a blog that writes about one of these regions, feel free to let me know and I'll add you to the list. I'm excited to see how much I'm going to learn this year.

Around the G's, I discovered this list as well.  Huzzah!
    I'm also starting a wishlist on Amazon for cookbooks that look interesting/promising.  If you know of a particular book that is especially good for a given region, please let me know!

    In the interest of time, I'm going to post this today and make the command decision that next week is going to be Italian week. I'll make a separate post for the recipe list.

    I've added a calendar to the sidebar, so you can see what week we're on.  Each calendar "appointment" will have all the recipes (or links to them) and the full shopping list (edit at your own discretion) in the description, and you can add it to your own calendar if you'd like to cook along for that week.  Keep an eye out for that calendar to update in the next week or so with the full year's worth of regions!

    Let's get this started!
