Here at Foods of the World we do a lot of culinary travel. Never leaving our own kitchens we travel to places rare, exotic, and commonplace to explore the foods.
 
So I've been wondering: What dishes---or even whole meals---have you prepared as a result of reading the recipes and cultural notes here at FotW.
 
A more interesting quesiton: Would you have made that dish if you hadn't been a member?

Another outstanding topic, Brook - I'll refrain from answering for now, since I founded the forum and Pretty much ALL of my "culinary travel" dishes have been inspired either by members' posts on this forum or, in a lot of cases, the FotW and/or Culinaria book series - and subsequently posted here. 
 
Having said that, I would hope that other members can provide some great anecdotes, with examples and/or links! Tongue

Brook. Firstly, from time to time I have prepred several of your feathered game dishes in season. Most of our wkend lunches are Saturday Italian Pasta Day & Sunday either Iberian or Greek or fresh shellfish or fish. I have prepared a few of Hoser's Medit. dishes and Souvlaki's. I am going to prepare Ron's Banana bread for Fil ... He loves banana bread. I have been here almost a year and am an avid poster; of family and professional Chefs recipes as I work with Chef Press .. so I have more recipes than I could possibly prepare; however I have encountered several Mexican and South American recipes from former members I am quite interested in.

One thing I should say, inspiring others with our posts was one of THE driving impetuses (impeti?) for the creation of this forum, and also one reason why i believe so much in the "pictorial" concept. The intention was for someone to research and re-create a dish, with enough background, family memories or other information to make it truly unique and interesting, and hopefully other members would be inspired to try it and share the experience ~ a true cross-pollination of traditions, cultures and interests.
 
In fact, every now and then, the board does seem to go on "runs" where interest in a dish takes off, inspiring many to try it. This was the birth of the gravlax (Superbowl Sunday), sima (Vappu Festival - Finland), National Paella Day (Memorial Day Weekend) and paprika hendl (Transylvania/Hungary/ Halloween) "traditions" here on the forum. It would be grat to see more participation in these and possibly other yearly "forum traditions" that might come up as time goes on!

I've made the following and probably many others that I can't remember. Ceviche peruono, mocho loco, paprika hendel, clafouti, Johnny Sacks sauce and St. Josephs day meatballs and Tok Fozelek. So, I got South American, Hawaiian, Eastern European, French, Italian American and Hungarian. That covers a little ground I think.

One of the big reasons I come here is for inspiration, and it never fails me. I wish we could lure some middle and far Easterners into this place.

Wow! great idea for a thread Brook. 
There are quite a few dishes that I've made as a result of being a member here...Carbonade Flamande for one, Hrudka for sure...I don't know if I ever would have gotten around to Paella had I not had the encouragement from the members here.

Also Ceviche, perhaps snail salad....paprika hendle for sure...many of my sausage posts are a direct result of things I've learned here and at other forums.


Go ahead...play with your food!

Brook's thread on Sephardic foodways ahs also inspired me to try a few dishes that I would never have even known of otherwise.
