From February 2010-November 2013, my family cooked and ate a meal from the world’s 195 countries (plus bonus areas).*
We shared our experiences so you can do it, too. Use this interactive world map to explore the countries we cooked. To begin your tour, simply click a pin and link to all recipes and posts about that country (or scroll past the map to see an A-Z listing). You’re sure to find something yummy for your family to try!
We create peace when learn about each other – when we understand one another. Let’s eat our way around the world!

The countries of the world, A-Z…
*ABOUT THE NUMBER 19:
There are many answers to the question “How many countries are there in the world?”
When I started this adventure, some experts said 192, while others said 194, or even 195.
Lacking any sort of expertise in geography, I chose 195 for one simple reason: to experience more cuisines. This number includes Taiwan which was technically not a country at the time of the Adventure. Also, South Sudan was added since GTA began, so we ended up cooking 195 countries, plus Taiwan. Later I added Palestine which brings the number to 197 total countries and territories.
There is also debate regarding which countries belong to what continent.
I am at the mercy of geographers in this area as well – I just want to eat food from around the world!
