Project Recipes Around the World The Project

The Project The project Recipes Around the World was an international project developed by Rotaract Club of Ribeirão Preto Norte, from district 4540 in Brazil, wich its goals was: •

encourage the exchange of cultures between countries of the world by creating a guide that contains typical recipes of any region of the world;

and promote an approachment of the Rotaract Clubs over the world.

Since the beginning of the Year 2011-2012, our International Services Comittée has invited clubs to be part of this project and asked them to show their cultures by their typical recipes. Many Rotaract Clubs had answered positively and sent recipes, photos, pictures and videos. All

these

material

has

been

uploaded

to

our

project’s

home-page

at

http://www.rotaractrpnorte.org/recipes and it will continue on-line until the end of the Year 20112012. You can visit the home-page and see many other things (like pictures, pieces of information and videos) that we couldn’t write here. The dead-line of the receiving was on the World Rotaract Week and finally we would like to show you the results of all efforts from many Rotaract Clubs over the world. Telling in numbers, this book of recipes contains 70 recipes from 38 Rotaract Clubs placed at 5 continents (Africa, America, Asia, Europe and Oceania), 26 districts of Rotary International (1460, 1913, 2220, 2420, 2430, 2440, 2450, 2482, 3080, 3132, 3140, 3271, 3790, 4300, 4390, 4460, 4540, 4640, 4690, 4855, 49,30, 4970, 5010, 6060, 7030 and 9810) and 20 countries over the world (Argentina, Australia, Azerbaijan, Bolivia, Brazil, Bulgaria, Croatia, Denmark, Egypt, India, Pakistan, Palestine, Peru, Philippines, Russia, Spain, Trinidad and Tobago, Turkey, Uruguay and the USA). That’s why we consider our project successfully in achieving its goals. Any

In a large bowl, stir together the flour and salt. Stir in the cooled butter and shortening with a fork. Stir in the egg yolks, and mix well. Add the buttermilk gradually until mixture starts to come together. Knead briefly until dough is smooth. Wrap dough in saran wrap and let rest on the counter for 30 minutes to an hour. Melt butter and oil in a skillet on medium heat. Sauté optional bacon pieces until crispy then remove to paper towels. Add the onions and sugar to the skillet and sauté until golden and translucent. Add the hearts of palm and sauté a few minutes more. Stir in the flour, then add the milk and lower heat slightly. Cook, stirring, until mixture thickens. Remove from heat and stir in the olives. Stir in the farmer’s cheese and bacon bits, if using. Set aside to cool. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Divide dough into 12 pieces. Roll out 10 of the pieces into circles large enough to line the bottom and sides of a standard muffin tin. It may help to roll the dough, then let it rest for a few minutes, then roll it out the rest of the way. The rest lets the elasticity in the dough relax, and helps it to maintain its shape. Line 10 muffin tins with dough circles, pressing them into the bottom and sides of the pan. Divide the filling between the 10 lined muffin tins. Roll out the remaining two portions of dough and cut circles to match the diameter of the muffin tins. Place the circles on top of the filling, and pinch around the edges to seal them with the dough lining the tin. Seal them well so that the filling doesn’t leak out during baking. Bake pastries for 25-30 minutes, or until golden brown.

B RAZILIAN C HEESE B READ From Rotaract Club of Ribeirão Preto Norte, district 4.540, Brazil Ingredients • 2 cups whole milk • 8 tablespoons butter, melted • 1/2 cup vegetable oil • 4 1/4 cups tapioca flour • 4 eggs • 2 cups grated farmer’s cheese, or any firm, fresh cows milk cheese • 1/4 cup grated cheddar cheese (optional) • salt to taste Directions 1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. 2. Mix milk, salt, vegetable oil and butter in a pot, and bring to a boil. As soon as it boils, remove from heat. 3. Stir tapioca flour into the milk and butter mixture. 4. Stir in the eggs and the cheese, and mix well. 5. Let mixture cool for 15-30 minutes, so that it will be easier to handle. (I like to chill it in the refrigerator for 15 minutes or so). 6. With floured (tapioca flour) hands, shape the dough into golf ball size balls (about 50 gram portions) and place them on a baking sheet. 7. Bake rolls for 20 to 25 minutes, until they are puffed up and are golden. They will rise slowly and puff up mostly in the last 5 or 10 minutes. 8. Serve warm.

tomato sauce rice haricote bean butter salt pickles

Directions Note: Lentils, split peas and black-eyed peas do not need to be soaked. Pick through the beans, discarding any discolored or shriveled beans or any foreign matter. Rinse well. Traditional Slow Soak: In a 5-quart saucepan, cover 1 pound dried beans with 10 cups water. Cover tightly and refrigerate 6-8 hours or overnight. Drain and rinse the beans. Hot Soak: In a 5-quart saucepan, bring 10 cups water to a boil. Add 1 pound dried beans and return to a boil. Remove from the heat; cover tightly and set aside at room temperature 2-3 hours. Drain and rinse the beans. Quick Soak: In a 5-quart saucepan, bring 10 cups water to a boil. Add 1 pound dried beans and return to a boil; let boil 2-3 minutes. Cover tightly and set aside at room temperature 1 hour. Drain and rinse the beans. Gas-Free Soak: (The best method for gas-free beans, developed by the California Dry Bean Advisory Board). In a 5-quart sauce- pan, place 1 pound of beans in 10 or more cups of boiling water; boil for 2-3 minutes, cover and set aside overnight. By morning, 75 to 90 percent of the indigestible sugars will have dissolved into the soaking water. Drain, then rinse the beans thoroughly before cooking them. COOKING BEANS: When cooking beans, do not add salt or acidic ingredients, like vinegar, tomatoes or juicewhich slow the cooking substantially; add these ingredients when the beans are just tender. Cooking times vary with the types of beans used but also may vary with their age. Beans are done when they can be easily mashed between two fingers or with a fork. Always test a few beans in case they have not cooked evenly. Return the soaked, rinsed beans to the 5-quart saucepan. Cover the beans with 3 times their volume of water. Add herbs or spices (not salt), as desired. Bring to a boil; reduce the heat and simmer gently, uncovered, stirring occasionally, until tender (the time will depend on the type of bean, but start checking after 45-60 minutes). Do not boil them since this will break the skins. Check the level of the water and add more if it gets low. When beans are tender, drain and use them in recipes; or for later use, immerse them in cold water until cool, then drain well and freeze in 1- to 2-cup packages. One pound of dried beans will yield about 5 or 6 cups cooked beans. PRESSURE COOKING: This is one of the quickest ways to cook beans. After you’ve soaked 1/2 pound of beans, place them in a 4-quart pressure cooker with 4 cups water. Cook at 15 pressure following the manufacturer’s directions for the type of legume you are cooking.
