I’ve been wondering what raw food people do in other countries (where they don’t speak English). First, I fixated on Japan, but so far, I have had no luck — two or three Japanese people have told me they would help me out but they have never come back to me.
I speak Spanish, so I decided a couple of days ago to take matters into my own hands, and look for Spanish (from Spain) recipes.
It has been difficult (so now I understand why I have not heard back from my Japanese “volunteers”). First, I had to figure out what people in Spain were calling “raw food”. It took me about two days to find a website that had the “magic word”. Then I have had to wade through tons of sites where they show you pretty pictures but give no recipes.
At last, I have begun to find a few sites, here and there, with recipes. (The fun part here, and I’m being facetious, is learning what is what — I have never cooked in Spanish, and they have different equipment, as well).
Anyway, I am going to start posting some Spanish (from Spain) recipes. They have different flavors and different ideas — different from the “ideas” of Spanish food we often see. If I can find Latin American recipes, I will post those as well.
Off I go. I have one recipe now. Let’s see how my translation skills hold up!
