Pili pili, also called piri piri, is served as a table condiment in all West African countries, where it heats up grilled meat, poultry, shrimp, fish, and even vegtable dishes.  Nearly any green chile can be used to make this sauce.  Some recipes call for tomatoes or tomato sauce to be added, and some recipes call for red chiles, either fresh or dried.  To make Pili Pili Mayonaise, combine 1 tablespoon of this sauce with one cup of mayonaise and serve with cold, cooked, shelled sprimps or prawns.
Egyptians call any dish of raw vegetables a "salad"even though we would call this a dip or spread.

The ultimate fancy restaurant dessert is the soufflé. Who does these at home? They’re too hard to make and too fragile, right? Wrong. Remember, your BBQ is nothing more than an oven you’ve taken outdoors, whether you use charcoal, gas, or hardwood logs. If you can do it indoors, you can do it outdoors.

This dish truly amazes people. I even had a 4-star chef once bet me I couldn’t make a soufflé in a BBQ. He ended up eating one, and paying for my dinner that night, which included a soufflé that didn’t rise as high as mine. So there!

For a variation, or to make a more substantial salad course, serve the radish salad over wilted Chinese cabbage:

This classic Yucatecan salsa is definitely wild. Xnipec, pronounced 
"SCHNEE-peck," is Mayan for “dog's nose.” Serve it--carefully--with
grilled poultry or fish.

This is a popular Southern Indian recipe that is either served as a side dish to curries or on its own with mango pickle or chutney. Note the tradition of adding a thinly sliced chile to the rice. Channa dal is dried yellow chickpeas, available in Asian markets. Note: This recipe requires advance preparation.

Pickles such as this one are commonly used in South Africa as a condiment to further spice up curries.  Also serve as a relish with chicken, turkey, lamb, or fish.
This aromatic mixture from North Africa is also found in Turkey and Jordan.  It is sprinkled over tajines and vegetables.  Tunisian cooks make a paste of it with olive oil and spread it on bread before baking. The cayenne is optional.  Sumac seeds are found in Middle Eastern markets.

Michael and Diane Phillips: This is one of Michael’s favorite accompaniments to grilled sausages or hot dogs. It’s also good on hamburgers.
