Food connects us all. It connects us to each other, to our own pasts and

identities/memories, and to the larger world around us. We can think of these

connections as going both inwards and outwards, so that food can take us into

exploring ourselves as well as the impact that we as individuals might have on other

people, economies, ecologies, and society. Food has been our basic language and the

reason the world connects. It lights up our mood when we are sharing a meal with our

loved ones. It’s a way we have shared foods throughout history and it’s a language that

connects us all. No matter what language we speak Hindi, Chinese, or English we can

stir the pot and cook something that we can all enjoy. Sharing foods and recipes is the

common language we all understand, even dating back in our history when people

were trading spices.
