I have too many projects going on, that’s all there is to it. But, I’ll still circle back to the ones that seem to have disappeared, at least now and again. You’d think, as much as I love soup, that The Bread & Soup Project would stay front and center, no? So, what do we […]

I haven’t forgotten this project, it just got stuck on a different burner – a lot of my cooking stuff has gone that way over the last few months since we haven’t had gas (5 months now). Cooking on hot plates is getting really “old”. When I was growing up, Belarus was called Byelorussia, or “White Russia” […]

It’s been awhile, but time to go with another entry in the big Bread & Soup Project. We’re on to episode 16 (can it be an episode if it’s not a video?), and the Caribbean island nation of Barbados. Inhabited since at least the 4th century by a series of Indian tribes, first from other parts of […]

I would venture to guess that a good percentage of my readers weren’t alive when Bangladesh (literally, “the republic of Bengal”) became an independent country. After a millennia of domination by various empires, and colonization by the British, and the massive genocide in 1971 by the Pakistani government (nearly 3 million Bengalis killed and almost […]

I couldn’t have found Bahrain on a map a week ago. I could have pointed vaguely towards the Middle East, but I couldn’t have told you that it was an archipelago consisting of 30 islands, though the vast majority of its land mass is one single island. I couldn’t have told you that it’s 25% the size […]

The Bahamas, or, officially, Commonwealth of the Bahamas, has an intriguing cuisine, a blend of a wisp of the native taino traditions with a whopping dose of African influence – given that some 90% of the population are descendants of freed slaves and free Africans brought there by the third influence, the British, after the American […]

I know, I know, this project is moving forward achingly slowly. But, so what? It’ll continue, as I find time to do the research and have fun with filled breads and soups, bit by bit, until it’s either complete or I decide to stop. And hey, here we are at the end of the “A”s, […]

You thought I’d either forgotten about or abandoned this project. But no, I’ve just been really busy with other stuff, and, probably more, the hotter summer months just didn’t feel like they lent themselves well to steaming bowls of hot soup and stuffed breads just out of the oven. But, let’s get back on track, […]

Time for Round #10 of The Bread & Soup Project! So it seems that Australia, as a whole, just isn’t all that into soup. I checked in with friends, and my youngest brother, who live there, and the general consensus was, soup’s just not much of a thing. I broached the subject of the infamous […]
