    Just doing a bit of catch-up!

    Some of you will remember back in 2014, I undertook a project to make 32 meals from each of the 32 countries participating in the World Cup in Brazil over the course of the 32 days of the tournament.

    It was a super-successful campaign which a lot of you enjoyed at the time. My endeavour was featured on BBC Radio Scotland, in the Sunday Post and Metro newspapers, and also on a number of football fan-blogs.


    Now, for the upcoming tournament in Russia 2018, World Cup Dinners is back!

    For my second round of World Cup Dinners I will be doing things slightly differently with a mixture of new meals for the 10 news teams who didn’t make it last time round, some throwbacks to previous dinners, and also a few special entries for teams from countries with some of my favourite cuisines.

    I'll post my cooking adventures on here day-by-day, so you can all see what I am up to, but you can also check out my website:

    You can follow me on Twitter, Instagram or Facebook too

    I'll be kicking things off later today with some lovely beetroot Borscht to celebrate the host nation of Russia.

    Nostrovia!

    THROWBACK! AUSTRALIA- AUSSIE BURGERS

    https://worldcupdinners.com/2018/06/16/throwback-australia-aussie-burgers/

    I’m mega excited by the mouth watering weekend of football action that lies ahead with the big guns of Argentina, Germany, and Brazil all making their debuts in the tournament!

    What better way to kick off your World Cup weekend than with some real deal Australian style burgers topped with pineapple, beetroot and egg to accompany the Socceroos match against a pretty tasty looking French team!

    Check out this 2014 throwback recipe here:

    THROWBACK- BRAZIL- FEIJOADA
    https://worldcupdinners.com/2018/06/17/throwback-brazil-feijoada/

    It’s throwback time again today, and this time we are going waaaay back to where it all began with the Brazilian national dish of Feijoada!

    This was my first ever World Cup Dinner for the 2014 tournament, and I must admit, it is one of my favourites. Nice and savoury with a bit of citrussy flavour coming through.

    Why not try making it today to accompany Brazil as they get their tournament off to a start against Switzerland.

    THROWBACK- COLUMBIA- BANDEJA PAISA
    https://worldcupdinners.com/2018/06/19/throwback-columbia-bandeja-paisa/

    Oooft! The shocks keep on coming!

    Columbia became the first South American nation to lose to an asian nation at the World Cup, going down to Japan in a upset which saw them a get off to a chaotic start, finding themselves a goal and a man down inside six minutes.

    Today’s World Cup dinner is a THROWBACK to one of my favourite Dinners of the 2014 tournament, the fantastic Bandeja Paisa- a platter containing a selection of famous Columbian specialities including polvo (powdered beef) , frijolespaisa, and arepa.

    Pretty different, check it out here:

    THROWBACK- URUGUAY- CHIVITO

    https://worldcupdinners.com/2018/06/20/throwback-uruguay-chivito/
    After a subdued opening match where a last minute winner from Gimenez snacked a victory for the Uruguayans, will they rediscover their bite today in this afternoons match against the toothless looking Saudi Arabia?

    For today’s World Cup Dinner I am going to re-create one of my favourites from the 2014 tournament the Chivito sandwich.

    [​IMG]

    Fully loaded with sliced steak, mozzarella, tomatoes, mayonnaise, black olives, bacon, fried eggs and ham, even Luis Suarez might struggle to get his gnashers round it!

    https://worldcupdinners.com/2014/07/11/uruguay-chivito/

    Highly Recommended to try at home!

    SWEDEN- BROLIN BALLS & DAHLIN GRAVY
    https://worldcupdinners.com/2018/06/23/sweden-brolin-balls-dahlin-gravy/
    [​IMG]

    This is a super exciting day for my here at World Cup Dinners towers- I will be making an amazing Swedish Meatball Recipe which has been specially created by ‘the Bowler‘ himself- the incredible Jez Felwick– star of the UK food truck scene, and author of The Bowler’s Meatball Cookbook.

    Inspired by Sweden’s amazing 3rd placed (yes, you read that right, 3rd!) showing at USA ’94 these balls are named after the Blågult’s dynamic duo at that tournament Tomas Brolin and Martin Dahlin!

    POLAND- KUTLET SCHABOWY

    https://worldcupdinners.com/2018/06/24/poland-kutlet-schabowy/

    Originally I had planned on making ‘Bigos’ for my Polish World Cup Dinner. It’s a hearty Hunter’s Stew, which sounds really tasty, but I thought it sounded a bit heavy, so instead decided to go with a more everyday meal Kutlet Schabowy, a breaded pork cutlet which is found in almost all Polish Restaurants.

    [​IMG]

    It’s super tasty, and probably my favourite World Cup Dinner so far, though I really love Eastern European food, so always happy to try some out.

    Check it out.

    ICELAND- BAKAOUR PORSKUR
    “More food mama, give us more food mama
    Give us prawn ring mama, give us anything mama
    Thank god,……my mum has gone to Iceland.”

    So said obscure 90s brit-pop pseudo-legends Bennet, though it is unclear whether they were singing about the far-northern Scandinavian country who have just sadly exited the Russia 2018 World Cup, or the chain of cleverly named British freezer shops.

    What is the cost of beer and meals in Moscow I know it can vary like anywhere but what in general should I expect to pay for a Beer in a decent lively bar.
    Thanks
