Food is the great unifier. No matter where we are in the world, we need to eat. Our food culture here in America differs drastically from the food culture in other parts of the world. There are parts of our American food culture that I can embrace fully — like the shift to eating locally grown produce and cooking meals from scratch. And while the fast food that appears nightly on many tables isn’t the high point of food in the USA, it also presents an opportunity to guide people to good food. To introduce the idea of homemade food rather than pre-packaged options. To showcase garden fresh produce. And to gain insight into what eating looks like in other parts of the world. Through food, we can understand one another and open our hearts, minds, and stomachs to the differences — and similarities — between humans from across the globe.
