Thursday, March 8th – South Korea
Sweet Crispy Chicken with Korean Vegetable Rice and Crispy Fried Egg.
Today they have chosen South Korea where they just wrapped up a successful Winter Olympics which has opened the door to a relaxing of hostilities with the north and averted world war three for a while.
Thursday, March 15th – Suriname
Masala spiced chicken with rice and beans.
This week No.9 has chosen Suriname because it’s a country that never gets in to the news but has an unbelievable history.
Firstly it sounds like it’s probably a country in Asia, but it’s actually in South America between Brazil and Venezuela.
Then you discover that even though it is in South America its largest ethnic group is actually Indian and south Asian, and accordingly its cuisine is an unusual combination of popular South American ingredients but cooked with Indian spices.
The Indian population grew when slavery ended and the Dutch colonists hired Indian labourers. When the country became Independent in 1975 a lot of the Indian population moved to Amsterdam, hence the reason there are so many Surinamese take-away’s in the Netherlands.
Even though it doesn’t get into the news very often Suriname shows us that the world is a very small
Just to give you an idea of what’s to come, here are some dishes they’ve included in the past that are sure to make your mouth water:
- Japan: Tempura of haddock with kare raisu Japanese rice curry
- Malaysia: Chicken Laksa a delicious Malaysian noodle soup with amazing flavours
- Egypt: Dukkah-crusted chicken and roast chickpea salad
- Nigeria: Suya Chicken kebab, tasty jollof rice with everyday salad & tzatziki dipping sauce
