Global Cuisine: Edition 1

If you’re currently in an interracial/interethnic relationship, or you are planning on becoming KolorBlind, one of the issues you’ll face in your relationship is the adaptation to different cuisines. This is particularly true, if your significant other is from a different culture/nationality. Part of being KolorBlind is keeping an open mind to different cultures, looks and languages. Once you can wrap your mind around the fact that you too would be considered ‘different’ or ‘weird’ in their country/culture, I think you’ll begin to accept your partner’s culture a lot more.

One of the first steps to stepping across the line, is learning a new language or in this case acclimating yourself to a new dish. If you and your significant other are not able to agree on whose dish should be prepared, then consider incorporating some of these dishes into your weekly menu.

I did not prepare any of these dishes! Browse through the dishes in this post and look up the recipes online. If you’re lucky you might even find a restaurant near you that offers some of these dishes. Go venturing with your significant other. There’s nothing more fun that going food tasting with the one you love. Global Cuisine – even food is KolorBlind!
