At Feast box, we’re passionate about bringing you global recipes and fresh, authentic ingredients from around the world. This takes a lot of research, lip smacking, and sometimes drooling on our keyboards. We know our customers are also passionate about global cuisines, travel and experiencing new cultures, so we thought we’d share some national foods from around the world (some more official than others..) to help sate your wanderlust and give you some seriously cultured dinner inspiration – or help you the next time you’re at a pub (or Zoom!) quiz. Afiyet olsun!
We found a lots of surprises and a few old favourites when putting this list together. If you thought the national food of Japan would be sushi, well you'd be right, but can you guess which beloved food is served up most in Nepal?
Keep an eye out for lots of these delicious dishes on Feast Box's weekly menu so you can try recreating these flavours at home and travelling with your tastebuds!
