Cultural Connections through Cuisine

Learning how other cultures solve the problem we all face every day: What will we eat?


Across all of human history, we have always sought out ways to meet our needs using the resources around us. Over time, how and what we eat becomes embedded in our cultural practices, our daily routines, celebrations and ceremonies.
