Yes, it's that time of year again, Vegan MoFo! I had a lot of fun last year contributing and reading so many amazing posts and even though I was exhausted by the end of the month, I began plotting away another another theme for 2012 straight away. This year I'm inviting you to come travelling with me, virtually of course! I'm going around the world in 20 days and have no idea where the stopovers are going to be (apart from the first week) which could be challenging at times.
The names of 196* countries have been placed into a hat and at the end of every week my man and young man will be drawing out the next 5 countries that I'll cook some dishes from and post about. The idea of a random challenge really appealed to me although when I sat down and thought about it, I realised that I would need a bit of time up my sleeve to investigate dishes to cook and plan shopping so that's why I'm drawing the countries a week in advance.
Hope you are looking forward to a month of eating around the globe. I'll be back soon reporting from my first stopover which wasn't the easiest country to be faced with first up!
* According to worldatlas.com, there is no single correct answer as many sources offer different figures which can range between 189 - 196 independent countries. After a bit of indecision, I used this country list from wikianswers.
