Hi, I’m Lee from cookeatworld.com

I was born in in a small town in England in 1973. I grew up like many children of that time, not eating too adventurously – until I left home, some time in the early 90s. It was then that World opened up, along with all its food. It’s where my passion for cooking took seed.

Around the world, we show love, hospitality and friendship through food. It’s one of the first things I’m offered to welcome me to someone’s home or country. Humans love to make others feel welcome and nothing does it to greater effect than offering up a plate of tasty local food.

Over the years I’ve lived and travelled around the World, sampling tasty favourites and learning more and more about food and cooking.

Today, I cook food and develop recipes from everywhere. I’m always inspired by personal food experiences while travelling or from a meal at one of my favourite local ‘mom & pop’ restaurants. Learning how people eat around the world is my passion. You’ll discover home cooked recipes from Asia, Europe, The Middle East and Americas all in one place. You need never eat the same meal twice again!

There’s nothing more satisfying than entertaining and sharing my knowledge and flavours with friends, family and people just like you! Over the years, I’ve discovered amazing dishes to create at home and picked up many helpful tips and tricks and techniques to make cooking International food, simple and stress free.

Cook Eat World is the place I share them. Join me on my journey around the globe (from my kitchen) as I show you new and exciting recipes from every reach of the planet.

      Thank you! So glad you’re enjoying the recipes. I have been traveling through Italy & France for the last few months, so expect more unusual, lesser known recipes in the new year. I’ve eaten so much in the name of ‘research’.

      Thanks again!

    Good evening Lee!
    I really enjoy reading your blog and following ideas and recipes.
    Thank you for many an inspiration.
    My husband has come home from hunting east of Adelaide with 4 wild ducks which we know from experience are NOT tender or fatty.
    Any suggestions would be appreciated as to how to cook them (slow for sure)
