Cooking Channel’s Olympic Round Up

2012 Olympics

Like the USA’s 5-medal swimming champ Missy Franklin, the Summer Olympics went by really fast. It’s hard to pick a favorite Olympic moment, between watching athletes barely old enough to drive do multiple back flips on a 4″ beam or that one time Michael Phelps won more medals than any Olympian ever. But we’ll mostly miss the great excuse the competition provided to try out several international dishes, each as impressive as its country’s athletic masters. In case you missed it, here’s a round-up of all of our Olympic coverage, from our Opening Ceremony party menu to gold medal-Olympian’s lavish taste for $3149 cocktails.
