Share Expat Recipes and South American Favorites
Expat recipes can get pretty wild. No matter where you are overseas, there always seems to be that one ingredient you just cannot get in your host country. So expatriates get pretty creative. The same often happens when you return home. We want to see just how creative you’ve been in your overseas kitchens, and with South American recipes at home.
That’s why we created the Expat Kitchen, our very own little recipe exchange right here on GoSouthExpat. Tell us how you make your traditional homeland recipes work, where to find unusual ingredients, creative substitutes you've tried, or what your favorite South American recipes are!
Expatriate Judy Rickatson's article Pining for Food from Home expresses so perfectly what this section is all about we decided to feature it here! We couldn't have said it better!
Now you'll get our report on Dining Etiquette in South America FREE and instantly!
Share your favorite recipes or tips here or just throw in a smidgen of expat food lore for laughs!
