Explore World Cuisine with a Culinary Staycation

Would you like to do something different during your holiday?

Culinary Staycation

Being able to travel the world to explore different cultures and their foods would be great. However, it would be very expensive and time consuming, while you only have a limited time and budget on your vacation. Another option is to bring the world’s cuisine to your house on a staycation. This will let you have different culinary experiences even while sticking to your budget.


From the Philippines you can bring home the adobo, which is pork, chicken, or seafood marinated in a garlic and vinegar sauce and then stewed in the marination mix. Served with white rice and vegetables on the side, you will enjoy one of the native dishes inside your own house. This is delicious and easily made. Try to use vegetables that are native to the Philippines.


Moving to Europe and breakfast, you definitely need to try the Spanish omelet. This is a great dish and easy to make as well. Slice potatoes and onion into a cast iron skillet with a little salt and olive oil. Cook over medium heat for about ten minutes. Beat 8 large eggs in a bowl with 1/3 cup milk and a little black pepper added. Add the potatoes and onions and stir well. Put everything back in the skillet with a little more olive oil in and bake for about fifteen minutes at 350 degrees. Sprinkle with some parsley. Breakfast is now served.


Next we travel to Brazil for a delicious fruit salad. Start with 4 kiwis, 3 bananas, and 2 oranges. Peal and slice the fruit and roll the bananas in a few tablespoons of cocoa. Put half a cup of plain yogurt in a bowl and add the fruit randomly. Top off with a handful of pignoli nuts and a tablespoon of honey. You are now ready to eat a low calorie, healthy delicious fruit salad.

Bringing different cuisines to your house from all over the world will let you sample different cultures and their cooking methods. Even though they might be quite different, these foods can be very delicious and easy to make. After trying a few different ones of other countries, you will be ready to become a world class culinary expert from your own home. After advancing to dishes that are harder to prepare, you could become known in your neighborhood as the world cook. All this got started from being on a budget and and deciding to enjoy a simple luxurious staycation.
