E.A.T. World


I love this idea. I've been a little lazy about coming up with interesting food lately - there was even a four day stretch last week of rice and lentils or beans every night, where I felt so much like the vegan stereotype...even though I think rice and lentils can be awesome.
Enter the E.A.T. World project! I just found this over at River's excellent The Crafty Kook , with an amazing introductory voyage to a sidewalk cafe in Austria. The rules, such as they are, are covered over there. In summary (and this is the best thing) there really aren't any rules. It's just a cool way to encourage everybody to try out recipes and inspiration from all over the world, with an alphabetical theme. There are even cool logos to use. I hope this spreads all over the place - it's a wonderful idea, and I can't wait to go travelling with you all!

you selected my favorite logo too! This is a very cool theme. Hope I can get my blogging butt in gear to do something, but I'll admire from the sidelines if not!

hmmm this is a very interesting concept! I look forward to seeing this come to life on the blogs. :)

I'm so glad you're on board, Mike! Thank you for joining, I have a feeling that we're all going to have lots of fun with this series. You captured the essence of E.A.T World so perfectly! Isn't that logo awesome? If Becks hadn't created the logos we would be stuck with some ugly disaster that I would have designed myself.

I can't wait to see what you cook up! Thank you again for joining and for supporting E.A.T World! See you somewhere around southeast Asia! :-)

Sweet! I cracked open my Turkish cookbook tonight (after detaching Veganomicon from my hip) and I was so excited at the new ideas the book gave me. I'd like to join you in these endeavors.

Wow, I completely agree that your baked goods look beautiful. Like in a magazine! Blogging is kicking me these days, so I might have to just think highly of other participants from the sidelines, but this is a great idea!

Best Regards,
