World Cup.... 4th of July!
World Cup- Today was crazy here, as Iran was playing against Spain. Exciting but disappointing for Iranians :( While watching the game with Emil, we thought it would be fun to prepare dishes from the countries participating in the FIFA World Cup.
Each dish is one of our favorites from some these countries. We thought no matter who you are rooting for, it will be fun to travel to some of those countries through food. I love doing that and hope, you will too!
Also this week you are receiving... A Special 4th of July Menu. A bit different than the regular format. Independence Day is a big day for my immigrant family. Papa loved celebrating Fourth of July. "Merry 4th of July" is what he would say to guests as he insisted entertaining every year to celebrate Independence.
He loved being an American and celebrated being in this country every chance he got. Sometime with American food, burgers and hot dogs, and sometime not.
Since we are traveling around the world with this weeks menu, we thought we would offer some more common American holiday favorites for the 4th of July menu so you can share with your guests and family or take to potlucks or picnics.
I say common American but I also have to confess, I sneak in turmeric in my mac and cheese and use several kinds of cheeses and a few other secret ingredients ;) The slaw has kale and more exotic cabbages in it. Potato salad has no mayo and is fresh and light vs. creamy and high in fat.... and so on. So yes, American favorites but lighter, fresher, skinnier, and hopefully better!
Deadline for Special 4th of July menu is 10:00 a.m. on June 29th. Please place your orders as soon as possible.
We are looking forward to cooking this weeks menu for you; and hope that you will be enjoying it as much as we will be preparing it.
From everyone at Ezie and Emil... It's All about food
