World Food Tour is our family friendly global recipe book.
As a family we love cooking and we enjoy travelling – not so easy with two youngsters in tow. Nick and I are both avid formula 1 fans so we decided to combine our three passions to create our blog. If we couldn’t visit the grand prix and experience the country and culture we would bring it to our home, with a recipe for every race.
Before we had children we used to sit down in front of the grand prix with a meal from that country. These days we make it a weekend activity to fit in around parties, swimming lessons and other social occasions.
Last year we collected together the recipes we had made in the past to create a blog and thus My Grand Prix Tea was born. We try to involve the children as much as possible so most of the recipes are quick and easy. Laura surprised us all and made her first apple strudel at the age of three (just look how proud she was) and Eddie is a dab hand at sushi and Char Sui Bao – which incidentally is in his top 5.
At the end of the year we looked back and thought we have quite a collection – over 70 recipes and an eclectic global cook book. We talked about our blog with friends and they were really interested in the idea of the recipes – less so in the grand prix – so it was time for a rethink .
From what started as My Grand Prix Tea we have now created World Food Tour, we will add recipes predominantly from the countries that host the grand prix but we will not limit them to this and the plan is to broaden the collection to make it truly global.
Come and join us on our World Food Tour. Sign up for our newsletter and if you have any recipe suggestions got in touch through the contact page.
We hope you have as much fun with these recipes as we have.
