RECIPES

In this section we gather recipes from all over the world. We want to share cultural traces in food, such as flavours, different ways of cooking the same ingredients and similar dishes from different corners of the world. Food and recipes define some of our behaviours and are a great way of introducing a country or a culture. All our interviews have a recipe.
