Announcement of Spotlight : Continental

  Spotlight : Festive Treat has ended with hundreds of yummy festive treats in two parts and our blogger friends have shared their festival treats with us. It's again that time has come when we are to put our spotlight on another topic. So now, there is a twist in the story. No, Jokes apart, Spotlight has thought to go International this month. We have covered various topics so far, but never focused on international recipes, which most of us love and cook at our home quite often.
     So, the theme for this month is Continental Cuisine

Now what is continental food ?
Here is what "Wiki" is giving the meaning of Continental Food:

" European cuisine, or alternatively Western cuisine, is a generalised term collectively referring to the cuisines of Europe and other Western countries, including (depending on the definition) that of Russia, as well as non-indigenous cuisines of Australasia, Latin America, North America, and Oceania, which derive substantial influence from European settlers in those regions. The term is used by East Asians to contrast with Asian styles of cooking. (This is analogous to Westerners' referring collectively to the cuisines of East Asian countries as Asian cuisine.) When used by Westerners, the term may sometimes refer more specifically to cuisine in Europe; in this context, a synonym is Continental cuisine, especially in British English.

       As a whole, Continental food is referred to the foods and cuisines served in complete Europe except England. Hope I have given you a clear concept of Continental Cuisine/food.
