#296 My Food is Me
This article on Alice Waters started me thinking again.
She describes her journey to Paris:
"It was really an awakening for me," she says. "I felt like I had never really eaten before. I had liked certain things but I didn't understand how it fit into people's lives in a delicious way. When I went [to Paris] and walked past the markets and ate in the little restaurants, it was like a revelation."
A friend of mine turned vegetarian after an unfortunate incident with a chicken foccacia. Another broadened her list of acceptable foods upon meeting her husband-to-be. And another, dropped the meat whilst he was living in England.
And so. I'm wondering about you.
Our backgrounds, events and circumstances shape the way we make our food choices. Why do you eat the way you do? I'm curious!
Here are some food stories shared, what about you?
