I love food, and I particularly love trying food from different parts of the world.

Eventually, I'd like to eat at least one dish from every country on earth.

Of course I fully realize how flawed that metric is. A single country, like America, can contain many cuisines – a meatloaf dinner isn’t representative, and neither is gumbo, or Hoppin' John. Cuisines can also straddle national borders, and influence each other, and a “Chinese” meal in America may or may not approximate what people eat in China.

Still, I have to start somewhere.

The map above represents my progress thus far. And you can see a few of the meals here.
