Laos consumes more sticky rice per person than any other country in the world. What sets their food apart--although there are definite similarities with Thai food--is the preference of sour (Umami) flavors over sweet.

Laos is a land locked country in South East Asia squeezed in between Vietnam, Cambodia, Thailand, China, and Burma. It was once a colony of France, along with Vietnam, and their cultural inflections set apart this little known food.

Sometimes when you ask for roast chicken you expect a piece *of* a roast chicken, other times you get the whole thing

Do you like steak? So do we. Entraña is a classic Uruguayan recipe of skirt steak and chimichurri. Let me tell you, if there is one thing they do well in Uruguay, it’s grilling meat

This week @voguemagazine posted a laughable article about "how to eat global in houston for the super bowl". The first place on their list was Ninfas. As much as we all love Tex-Mex, houston is a city where one in four people were born outside this country. Houston is home to far more interesting foods than Tex-Mex: like cut (guinea pig). If you would like a more diverse guide to eating global in houston check out any post on Terabeza but especially our super special super bowl post (link in bio)

Inevitably with new foods there can be consequences. On the blog this week our year in review for 2016 gives you a lighter look at global solutions to life's perplexing problems...

One of the best things about food blogging is the opportunity to think up new and interesting fusions. Here is one of my favorite leftover breakfasts, byrani breakfast tacos

A Turkish friend of mine told me "Americans have the watch, we have the time." Whenever you eat international food, it is not just about the adventure of trying something new; it is also experiencing that "something new" in the way that it is meant to be experienced. For most of the world's cultures, that means experiencing it slowly and with friends or family. Don't just rush off from your meal. Take time to enjoy a good cup of Turkish coffee (remember don't take the last little sip since Turkish coffee has the grounds mixed in with the drink) and Baclava.

We went crazy over an herby dish called Ezme. Eaten with freshly cooked bread (but good enough to be eaten with a spoon), this dish is a fresh tomato-cucumber-herb trifecta. Too lazy to dip it yourself? Try the Lahmacun. It has a very similar taste with the addition of meat and is served on a thin crisp flatbread.

Turkey sits at the crossroads of the East and the West, the North and the South.  Early Persian, Greek, and Roman Empires all claimed this land at some point, importing parts of their own culture and exporting the local culture. It is hard to overstate the influence that Turkey has on global cultures and foods.
