Cooking Up The World Cup!

Me and the man like football – the kids not so much. We’re a bit of a foodie family too. We had the idea to cook our way through the World Cup cooking dishes from all 32 of the competing countries to get the kids to try a wider range of foods and to get them more interested. When I was looking for inspiration for some of the dishes a nice lady got in touch asking if I’d be interested in doing a similar thing with a little help from Bacofoil . It would of been silly of me to turn it down, so I gladly accepted. They sent me over some recipe ideas (admittedly I have only used one of them so far) and some to use too.

Now that we are over half way through our cook off I thought I’d give a little insight into what we’ve been scoffing!
