Gifts for you, my friends

Every day more and more people join the Adventure. Some try several recipes. Some host potlucks. Some are inspired enough to begin their own around the world journeys. And some just want to spread the message of world peace through food.

It’s no longer just me and my little family.

It is all of us, together, making a difference.

Friends, we are beginning a peace movement.

I am beyond excited about how our community is growing, so I have a couple of happy little gifts especially for you.

Happy Little Gift #1:

I designed a sheet of six (6) tent-style Buffet Labels for your Global Table. You can use them to label dishes for potlucks, school projects, or during any international foodie gathering.

The labels include fun, inspirational sayings, colorful backgrounds, as well as a roomy spot to write the dish’s name and/or the country that inspired the dish.

You can also use them as place card templates, simply by writing each guest’s name onto one, fold and place by their plate.

Happy Little Gift #2:

For those of you looking to amp up dinner conversation, try my collection of Global Conversation starters.

These assorted quotes from around the world are part of a growing list – all worthy of lengthy dinner chatter.

Maybe even debate.

For example, do you agree with Mr Koenig? Where does happiness come from?



Happy Little Gift #3:

For those of you who are diving into the Adventure with full force, I hereby invite you to become a Knight of the Global Table…

Should you accept this honor, feel free to download or add this fun badge to your web site to let people know you are part of the Adventure… that you’re hungry for peace …

* Large Badge: Simply cut and paste the code below into your web site, where you want the badge to show up (Tip: the badge is transparent behind the circle, so it’ll adapt to the color of your web site without trouble):

[crayon attributes]Knights of the Global Table Adventure[/crayon]

*Small Badge:

If you’d prefer a smaller size, try this badge. It’s only 150 px wide and is great for tight spaces. (Just like the larger one, you can use it on any color background; the area around the circle is transparent).

This code embeds it in your web site:

Just a kind heads-up about copyright: Copying someone’s recipes over to your own site is a big no-no (the law says so). It’s usually best just to link to the original author for the recipe…unless it’s your own recipe or you’ve made enough changes to make it your own, of course.

    I heard you on Rick Steves a couple weeks ago. I love your website and idea! You inspired me to take on the global cooking challenge as well. We ate our first afghani meal on Sunday. My kids loved it! My 8yo son wrote a beautiful story about our dinner at school the next day. So he is inspired too, thank you so much for all the hard work researching and cooking you have done. Tihis is really wonderful.

      I’m so happy to hear this, Bridget! Tell your son I think it is fantastic he took the time to write about his experience. He’s a true Knight of the Global Table 😉

  4. Kate Machin says

    Hi Sasha,

    Would love to add one of your badges to a new blog I’m planning, but when I copy and paste the code into Blogger, the image doesn’t show up on my blog site. Do you know if anyone else has had trouble? Or is it just me?


    • Sasha Martin says

      Kate, we figured out that the code has to be in a text box to work, so we just updated it … try it again and send me a link to your broken image if it still doesn’t work (you can email via the contact form). Thanks for letting me know 🙂

  7. I just found your amazing site (thank you Pinerest!!!) and I am so intrigued! You have inspired me to start something like this with my family in January! My husband and I love to travel, but with four kids (ages 8,6,3 and 4 months!!) leaving the country really isn’t in the cards right now! Camping is about all we do right now, but that is enabling us to show off our great country to our children so I’m grateful 🙂 Stovetop traveling may just be what the doctor ordered to introduce the world to our kids!! Thank you so much for your inspiration! I can’t wait to get started and know I will be stopping back often for menu ideas, recipes and just plain inspiration!

  8. It’s appropriate time to make some plans for the future and it is time to be happy. I’ve read this
    post and if I could I want to suggest you some
    interesting things or suggestions. Maybe you could write next articles referring to this article.
    I desire to read even more things about it!

  9. Link exchange is nothing else except it is simply placing the other person’s website link on your
    page at proper place and other person will also do same in
    favor of you.

  10. It’s the best time to make a few plans for the long run and it is
    time to be happy. I’ve read this put up and if I could I wish
    to recommend you few interesting things or advice. Perhaps you could write subsequent articles
    referring to this article. I wish to learn more things about it!
