Coffee-Marinated Korean Short Ribs
Korean short ribs, otherwise known as “galbi,” refers to a strip of beef cut across the bone from the chuck end of the short ribs. Unlike American- and European-style short ribs, which include a thick slice of bone-in beef, Korean-style short ribs are cut lengthwise across the rib bone. The lengthwise cut helps to soak up the rich, Korean flavor–infused coffee marinade and serves to help grill it up quickly.
Spicy Thai Coconut Soup
This soup, otherwise known in Thailand as Tom Kha, gets its name from tom, meaning soup, and kha, meaning “galangal,” a type of aromatic root vegetable. Make this quick and easy Thai classic at home, fragrant with herbs and spices, for dinner tonight.
Middle Eastern Cauliflower Bites with Coffee Tahini Dip
Tahini, or toasted ground sesame seeds, comes from Persia, where it was called “ardeh.” For hundreds of years, only the aristocracy and wealthy could obtain the ingredients to make tahini – in some cultures, tahini was used as currency! Enjoy this delicious healthy appetizer that gets extra depth of flavor from Nescafé Gold.
Nut-Free Rainbow Pad Thai
Pad Thai was created in the 1930s in Thailand by Plaek Phibunsongkhram, who was the prime minister at the time. Noodles are economical to produce and could be dried and kept for long periods of time. The amount of rice used to make noodles was 50 per cent of what would be consumed if it was eaten unprocessed, so noodles essentially doubled Thailand’s rice stores. Colorful vegetables stir-fried with rice noodles and a lip-smacking sauce make this a delicious and easy alternative to take-out.
Latin Burgers with Caramelized Onions
Latin cuisine prides itself on the depth and diversity of flavors that result from using local and readily available ingredients. Latin food is sometimes known for being spicy, it’s true – but it’s also hearty, sweet, savory, refined, comforting, healthy, smoky, salty, and over-the-top delicious – just like this dish. These zesty burgers combine chorizo, a spicy jalapeño relish and Maggi Liquid Seasoning for a super-craveable Latin flavor explosion!

With the natural sweet and sour taste from tamarind and the characteristic aroma of basil leaves, this dipping sauce will surely conquer you from the first taste.
Chicken Cacciatore from Italy

Chingri Malai Curry from India
