Kidzworld Kitchen: Multicultural Dinners

Jan 23, 2013

There is a whole world of delicious foods and flavours just waiting to be tasted and explored!

If you are lucky enough to have had the privilege of traveling or perhaps have an ethnic background or a relative or friend from another part of the globe you have probably experienced multicultural cuisine. While not all of these different tastes will appeal to you it’s always important to give it a try. You never know when you will discover something you love. Being open minded with food you can be sure that you never miss out on something amazing. Because hey! Somewhere out there is someone who’s never had pizza or burgers...and they don’t know what they’re missing either!

Here are just a couple of simple recipes you can try at home for chow mein and chicken curry. It just might kick start an interest in international cooking and eating!
