The esteemed German author and culinary expert Horst Scharfenberg said in one of his books, “Every national cuisine is far more than cooking, it’s a way of life determined by the country’s national character – the way its people feel and think and behave”.
Being introduced to a country through the anthropological lens of food, culture, and people has exposed me to the vivacity and roots of a country. I have learned so many things about countries, from their histories and geographies, to their cultural values and traditions, and much more.
I am the kind of person who actually enjoys reading cookbooks for fun, loves pushing themselves outside their comfort zone and trying new things in life and in food (carpe diem!), likes attempting to take artistic “aesthetically-pleasing” photography, and is fascinated with exploring and learning more about the world beyond her own bubble. Live life to the fullest! Thus World Yums is here. The recipes are from various cookbooks I have consulted, the accompanying photographs are what I have produced in following the recipes, and the cultural descriptive posts include pictures found online with respective credit to their owners.
I hope that it has been as pleasurable for you to read as for me to create this simple and humble blog. Thank you for reading, and enjoy! Wahoo!
P.S. Here’s one more quote that I believe you as a reader of World Yums would rather enjoy :-)
