I am a fruit salad of the world. And we have all heard the expression "breaking bread with someone." Everyone understands the reference. Forrest Gump's mom said Life was a box of chocolate...although I never understood that because I always know what I'm gonna get when I open one.
You can start to love a place just because of its food and food has a way of entering the hearts of even the starchest racist or prejudice ridden person. Who would have thought chicken curry would be England's national dish? Or that pizza and kebab is eaten in even the most racist and xenophobic swedish husehold? It is through food that we can truly "meat" and "blend".
This week on www.globalthemes.org we wish to celebrate food, and with it, the people and cultures behind it. So in Frank Sinatra's words playing on our Music Player, let's bake a sunshine cake!
