Around here, the easiest way to make friends ... is to bear FOOD! Regardless of where you're from, it's the one thing that brings people together. We wanted to share a few of our favorite foods from around the world that are not only delicious, but easy to share. Now who's having a potluck?! Charcuterie, France. We love us a good charcuterie and cheese board. Unless you're vegan, you can't really go wrong with a plate of quality meats and cheeses. Charcuterie comes from the word charcutier, which means "pork butcher" in French. However, other meats may be served. The only thing that would make this even better? A glass of wine.
Injera, Ethiopia. Injera is the national dish of Ethiopia and Eritrea. The slightly spongy flatbread typically served with stews or veggies. When eating injera, silverware isn't necessary, because you use the bread to grab and eat the sides. Just make sure to wash your hands!
Dim sum, China. Usually eaten around brunch time, dim sum is various types of bite-sized foods enclosed in rice flour or wheat starch wrappers. They're served in steam baskets, or on small plates and carried around in carts for you to order as you please. They're fun to order, and fun to eat!
Pizza, Italy. Although pizza originated in Italy, it's become a college dorm room/Monday night football staple in the United States. It's an easy go to for people that are lazy to cook, and it still tastes good cold for breakfast the next morning.
Samosa, India. This Indian pastry can be fried or baked, and is usually filled with onions, peas, potatoes, lentils, and either lamb, chicken, or beef. Indian samosas however, are traditionally vegetarian. Regardless of which way you go, we think they're best served with mint sauce or chutney. Yummm.
