Weekend Cooking: Round the World with Atlas Masterclass

A couple of months ago I shared our experience of Atlas Masterclasses. We have continued to do masterclasses everyy second week and the plan is to continue to do that for a while yet.

I am not going to go through the details of how the masterclass works because I already did that here.   I would say though that one of the things that I enjoy is that although the recipes are not necessarily normal, they are very accessible. Every week, we ask my son to cook at least one meal a week, even in the weeks that we are doing these boxes, and he seems to enjoy being the cook on these nights.

This week,  I am sharing the last three countries that we visited.


Satay Chicken Skewers with Rice and Pineapple Sambal

Beef Rendang, Roti and Cucumber Salad  - enjoyed this one a lot!

Mei Goreng, Tofu, Crispy Egg - not our favourite I am afraid


Grilled pork chops, black bean sauce and singapore noodles -This was our favourite from Singapore week

Hainanese chicken rice, chinese broccoli, ginger and spring onion sauce

Forgot to take a picture of Cauliflower, potato biryani, almond, mint, tomato


Chicken schnitzel, mustard mash, zucchini, asparagus and dill salad

Cheese kransky, warm cabbage and apple salad with pretzel and curry wurst sauce - I really enjoyed the warm cabbage and apple salad and the pretzel

Smoked pork hock, rosti and apple slaw

Next week we are doing France, and I can't wait!

This week

Saturday: Rib eye steak, baked potato and green salad
Sunday: Lasagne
Monday: Singapore noodles with chicken
Tuesday: Pork chops, mash potato, sweetcorn and green beans
Wednesday: Chicken Tikka Masala with Rice
Thursday: Chicken Schnitzel Burgers
Friday: Pizza (takeaway)

Weekend Cooking is open to anyone who has any kind of food-related post to share: Book reviews (novel, nonfiction), cookbook reviews, movie reviews, recipes, random thoughts, gadgets, quotations, photographs, restaurant reviews, travel information, or fun food facts. If your post is even vaguely foodie, feel free to grab the button and link up anytime over the weekend. You do not have to post on the weekend. Please link to your specific post, not your blog's home page.


  1. You are so impressively adventurous! When I cook from "around the world," it mainly involves getting some sort of frozen ethnic cuisine from Trader Joe's!

    1. These boxes make it very easy to be adventurous, Jill. I don't think we would choose these recipes if we were looking at a website

  2. What Jill said! I love your culinary travels. I was just over at the Atlas website and wow -- how lucky you are to have this.

    1. I know right BFR! And we are very lucky!

  3. Those all sound like foods that I've read about in mystery stories set in the exotic places. What fun to try them!

    be well... mae at

    1. There's certainly some of these dishes that I have read about Mae!

  4. So much fun and interesting idea to cook from around the world. Most of my global cooking is Mediterranean or Indian.

    1. It is really fun, and definitely helping us to keep sane in these challenging times Judee.

  5. Nice to see such a variety! That second dish in particular looks delicious. :)

  6. I love the variety of cuisines and dishes you get to try. Everything looks amazing!

    1. It is definitely all around the world Deb.

  7. I am thinking of doing something like this for the winter months. Do a different cuisine each weekend with wine to match.
    I'm a new viewer to British Bake Off (go figure) and am also thinking of trying some of their challenges.
    The meal with tofu and egg wouldn't appeal to me either.

    1. I was looking forward to that dish Jackie. We eat Nasi Goreng quite regularly, but neither my husband or I liked them.

      I am in a Facebook group where someone is planning to do all the technical challenges from this sesion of Bake Off. And lucky you, you have plenty of seasons to catch up on.

  8. The Atlas Master Classes is such a great idea. I am going to have a look at that. And now I'm actually hungry...

    Hope you will have a good week with lots of excellent recipes!

    Here's my The Sunday Post #15

    1. thanks Mareli! I am looking forward to it!

  9. This masterclass experience sounds like so much fun!
