Your Olympics Party Menu: 6 Dishes From 6 Competing Countries
The 2014 Winter Olympics are finally here, and it’s safe to say that anticipation has been mounting for a while now. People all over the world are gearing up to watch the nations’ greatest athletes go head to head in Sochi, and there’s no better way to celebrate ultimate athleticism than by chowing down on some medal-worthy Olympics food.
Sure, you can always cheer on the Olympians by running alongside them on the treadmill or by pretending to ski this weekend — but you could throw a Olympics-themed party and serve your guests food inspired by all the athletes’ respective home countries.
Of course, we’re still rooting for all the Americans at the Winter Games this year, but we still don’t think they’ll mind if we indulge in some Mexican or Asian-inspired fare while doing it. If you can’t compete with the Olympians, you might as well eat for them, and today we’re highlighting six recipes that have been perfected by food lovers living in six of the competing countries. We don’t always agree with what our sports rivals are eating, but these dishes are something we all can agree on.
