For this month’s International Food Challenge, we are going to explore the Bordeaux cuisine from France. Bordeaux is a port city on the Garonne River in southwest France. The historic part of the city is on the UNESCO World Heritage List as “an outstanding urban and architectural ensemble” of the 18th century. Bordeaux is also an upscale place- a city for luxury shopping, drinking, and eating. It sits in the center of the world famous wine region that bears its name and thus tourists come here come to eat, drink, experience wine, and be merry. 

Saraswathi, our host, gave us some delicious bakes from Bordeaux to try. But I’m neck deep into baking other things, so I decided to make this colorful and refreshing Strawberry-Mango Salad.


Winter has been terrible this year, especially this month. This February is going down as one of the coldest February in the recorded history (or so we have been told). So when I saw this salad with summer fruits, strawberry & mango, it made me think of the warm weather and the colorful produce it’s going to bring.

I wasn’t sure if I would get good mangoes, but luckily I found some good quality mangoes in Whole Foods (and to top it off, they were on sale — yippee!!). So the salad, even though not very seasonal for this time of the year, tasted pretty good. I’m definitely going to make it again when both strawberries & mangoes are in season.
