January 2.— Goan Fish. Content Note: Orientalism

The Goan Fish recipe (renamed here) was the first recipe where it was not only confirmed that the original 365 Foreign Dishes cookbook would be full of Orientalism, but it became apparent that the author(s) would be shy to use spice. That said, I was happy to dive in because I had a full side of salmon in my freezer, waiting for something like this.

January 1.— Austrian Goulasch.

The Austrian Goulasch recipe was one of the reasons I chose 365 Foreign Dishes as the book for this project. It had everything I had hoped for, including ingredients that are no longer easy to source unless I want to get strange looks as I approach local farmers asking for their discarded calves’ heads.
