Introducing Euro 2016 food

10 Jun

When World Cup fever struck the house in 2014, I came up with the big idea of cooking something from each of the 32 competing nations.

This led to a month of meals that expanded our food horizons and introduced us to new flavours, ingredients and cuisines. Some have become family favourites – Japanese chicken karaage or Brazilian brigadieros come to mind – while others are less likely to be repeated…

Eventually Colombia claimed the title, its mouthwatering barras de limón seeing off Nigeria’s fiery beef suya.

As before, we’ll start by eating each country’s food on a day that they are competing. (Though unless I correctly predict every team that progresses to the knock-out stage, we’ll end up eating for some countries after the fact.)

We’ll score the dishes as we eat, eventually awarding our own Euro 2016 winner.
