Bored of eating the same old meals every week? Be inspired to try something new with our top five up-and-coming cuisines for 2017.
Ghanian Food – 2017 is set to be the year of an African food revolution, and where better to start than with fun, relaxed Ghanian cooking. From jollof fried chicken to waakye rice, vibrant Ghanaian flavours mean you’ll never be stuck for dinner ideas again. For those looking to try Ghanian cooking for the first time, we recommend Keynam: fried red snapper with shaved papaya.
Turkish Food – Explore an exciting blend of flavours beyond your annual Christmas helping of Turkish delight. A history of spice trade and influence from the Ottoman Empire has created a cuisine filled with rich, aromatic dishes that make the most of nuts, dried fruits and spices. Discover your future favourite party food: Mücver, a fritter made from courgette, feta and mint.
Jewish Food – Create unfussy family dishes that pack a punch without spending hours in the kitchen. Discover the bold flavours waiting to be unleashed from simple ingredients in recipes that draw inspiration from across the globe. We recommend Hamin: a slow-cooked stew made with lamb shoulder and potatoes.
Korean Food – Next time you visit your butchers, make sure to order an extra cut of beef for a Korean feast. From classic bulgogi to kimchi burgers there’s something to suit every palate. For the more daring of you, we suggest Yukhoe: Korean steak tartare typically served with a spicy dollop of gochujang.
Student Food – We know, we know, this isn’t technically a cuisine but there’s something universally recognisable about budget-friendly, fuss-free cooking. Relive your student days with some creative back-to-basics cooking. Where better to start than with a classic one-pan creamy pasta with asparagus, lemon and basil.
