Sharing recipes from all over the world

We are constantly amazed by the passion for food and recipe-sharing of the Thorn Tree forum on the Get Stuffed branch. If you've got a foodie question, this is the place for answers! We've often talked of how fantastic it would be to compile a Thorn Tree cookbook...but until that day, why not try one of these recipes from around the globe? Everyone posts their versions of dishes and it's interesting to see how tried and tested they are. So grab an apron and start clicking!
