Euro 2016 dinners

Hello again, football-related dinner fans!

During previous major football tournaments I've sometimes used the teams playing that day to influence what I've eaten for dinner that evening. Last year it all got a bit more serious by making sure that we did something (no matter how small) for every single day of the tournament, and this year I've decided to play again.

This site documents the things eaten and drank during the 2016 UEFA European Championship. Images are from Instagram, where you can find me as greywillfade if you'd like to see photos of my other passions - primarily hotel carpets, travel, and cats.

When I'm not cooking, Instagramming food, or watching football, I work to help people make their processes and bits of the internet better. You can find out more about that on my actual website.

The rules

Each day of the tournament, pick a team that is playing and cook something from, or inspired by their national cuisine.

The aim is not to cook in support of a team, or to pick the winning team; it's to cook as wide a range of new dishes as possible. Aim to avoid repetition of teams as much as you can (strategic choices during group stages are advised). Do not repeat meals.

If you'd like to join in, it's not too late! I'm posting things using #euro2016dinners if you'd like to play too.
