Having decided to do a virtual culinary tour of the world, the first question was “where to start”.
By a very technical process, which involved catching a 50 cm inflatable world globe and choosing the country that was under my right index finger, Chile is the first country in our virtual tour.
Apart from tasting the food of the country, I also want this to be a learning experience for my grandchildren. The Aussie ones are 14, 8 and 4, and the English ones are 2 and under 1. Most of the time only the Aussie grandies will be part of this adventure, but the English ones will be in Melbourne in March and April 2017 (they might not learn much, but they’ll taste a lot).
So, apart from researching the food, I will also make up fact sheets and we can have a little quiz at the end of our meal.
