Wondering what to make for dinner tonight? Chances are, you’ll turn to the internet, not a cookbook.

And Pinterest is THE place on the internet to find recipes. As the image-heavy social network continues to grow internationally—of its 70 million monthly active users, a third are outside the US—it is becoming a treasure trove of regional recipes directly from the kitchens of home cooks around the world.

Here are the current most popular recipes from 11 countries around the world. (“Most popular” means that the pins had the highest click-through rates for the last 28 days, and were top re-pins from Pinterest’s “most influential Pinners,” according to Pinterest, which shared the pins with Quartz.)
