With the help of our Kitchen Cabinet members, area home cooks who’ve generously shared recipes from the countries where they were born, readers of The Post and Courier Food section this year have been transported from the mountains of Afghanistan to the tropical shoreline of Brazil. And the series isn’t even halfway done.

Directions for preparing the dishes pictured here are available online at postandcourier.com/food/kitchen_cabinet.
