Culture and Cuisine

A great deal of tempting photographs accompanied my brother’s text messages about Nike and other players in Greek mythology.

Grilled calamari, meat skewers, meat and cheese pies, and gyros. And a dessert that looked like one we have eaten all our lives growing up in our Arab home.

A great part of cultural appreciation is sampling local cuisine as one travels or even in new restaurants at home.

Exposure to new foods leads to the inevitable conclusion that cultures overlap.

Numerous books have been written about the history of the relationship between culture and cuisine.
