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.

    Love you blog and your random recipe tweets. Made your Lamb Koftas with spicy relish last night to rave reviews. I added a tablespoon of sugar to the relish which gave it a little more balance without damaging its savouriness or spiciness.

    Hi Lee – I’ve just discovered your blog and I’m incredibly excited to see so many cuisines in your culinary repertoire. I can’t wait to explore more of your blog :)

    Lee, would you be happy for a Blyth charity to use some of your recipes in a small booklet to raise money for other charities. Asked your mum and Debbie and they seemed to think you would agree but you would sort out which recipes we could use. We will put your name on them and would like a few of your little sayings as well. Best wishes Hazel

    Hi, I just stumbled upon your blog and I am really excited that I did. I actually love the look of your blog as it really looks so professional and has given me a bit of inspiration for my own. I will be trying your recpes very soon – and love the fact that you have so many asian recipes to browse through…having grown up in Singapore…these are the flavours I miss the most now that I am living in Mexico! You have a new follower!

      Thanks Alex,

      Always nice to get some positive feedback! I love south east Asian food and plan on many more recipes soon… The recipes of late have focussed quite heavily on Indian (which is no bad thing) but at the expense of other Asian cuisines – Singaporean/Malaysian are my favourites so this is where I’ll be focussing!

      Keep visiting… And tell ALL your friends!
