Week 9 of #WorldwideWednesdays is taking us to Western Asia!
If this is your first time joining Map to Magic Vacation’s #WorldwideWednesday, welcome! We’ll be recreating meals from virtually every country/region of the world that you can enjoy while doing some virtual travel.
NEXT STOP: Western Asia
During our virtual travels to this region, we decided to cook up Za’atar Chicken and Couscous with with Lemon Crema and Spinach.
You can find the recipes we used here: https://www.hellofresh.com/recipes/2019-w11-r5f-5c4795f7e3f33954b1718b61
Lying at a crossroads between Europe, Asia, the Caucasus and North Africa, Western Asia was right in the center of the spice exchange. Spices from India, produce from Africa and the “New World”, as well as religion have all had an impact on the local food culture and made it what it is today.
Whether you attempt a replication of this dish using the recipe we used – or try another recipe of Western Asian influence, we can’t wait to see it. Let us know how it goes in the comments below or post your meal to Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram with the #MapToMagicVacations and #WorldWideWednesday hashtags.
Of course, the food presentation isn’t the only beautiful part of the region. So once you’re sufficiently full, why not (virtually) jet around a bit?
