52 Cuisines in 52 Weeks: 47 down, 5 TO GO!

Only five cuisines to go in my "52 Cuisines in 52 Weeks" blogging exercise.

Wowzers! It's hard to believe I'm almost finished with this challenge I gave myself almost a full year ago.

I told Himself today as we drove to the next dining adventure--Polish--that I'm not sure whether to be glad or sad about that. On one hand, at times it has been quite a real push to get these blog entries done, a considerable investment of time, money and effort. On the other, it has been a blast--a great way to learn about food and different cuisines and a great way to spend time with my friends, and with Himself, of course.

This won't be the end of it, though, when I pen--so to speak--and post cuisine #52. I'm considering continuing to post one new cuisine a month, while I'm busy blogging about other food and travel related things. And yes, I expect there to be a book to write at the end of it. After all, I've just conducted a year's worth of research.

But that's for a later blog entry. After a good--but rather heavy--Polish meal, I desperately need a nap.

You should make himself suffer for a while, and eat something boring every day. Or maybe as a sort of long-haul palate cleanser. :P

I also joked with him about the possibility of cramming 52 cuisines into as short a period as possible--maybe 4 meals a day for 13 days?

Seriously, though, what an adventure! I'm glad you've made it all available in blog form, but it would be nice to see it on a bookstore shelf someday...

Funny you should mention that, John. I'm working on a book proposal right now. Not just a collection of the blog entries, because anyone can go to the blog and read it for free, but I want to further explore the ideas I began looking at in this series.

As for that 13-day slamfest of international dining, as much as I love what I'm doing, I think that could seriously do me in.

As for feeding Himself boring food, I'm really too fond of him to do that! (and I'm sure he feels rather like a guinea pig sometimes anyway!)
