Cooking the UEFA Euro 2016 theme

My sister and I had been toying with the idea of cooking ourselves through the European Soccer Championships for a while. Now that I have time, I decided to follow up and it took me half a day to figure out when to cook what and according to which rule? Will it have to be two dishes from opponents in a match? Will I have to do six dishes a day to represent all teams playing that day? … . In the end, I arrived at the most simple strategy of “24 countries, 13 days – that makes roughly two countries per day”. Now to the food choices, some were easy, but some were pretty difficult (Albania? Never been there, never heard of its cuisine, how on earth am I going to cook something Albanian? And how am I going to make my children eat all that foreign stuff?).

The fruit platter depicted is supposed to represent the flags of the four national teams playing in group A.
