What Shall We Eat?


One of the very first things that come to my mind when travel is mentioned, is the food. Food is a significant part of culture and can go as far as defining culture itself. It’s not often that you are able to come across a culture whose signature dish is all that similar to that of another.

Travel has always been a passion of mine and there is nothing more exciting than experiencing different cultures and habits associated with each destination. Although my travels haven’t consisted of faraway lands and obscure places, I aspire to visit a multitude of different countries before I die. Add it to the bucket list if you will, as cliché as it may be. My travel aspirations have a purpose and that purpose is to completely immerse myself in the culture of wherever it is that I happen to visit. But what really grabs my attention is the food.

Food can say so much about a culture. Food can have a historical background, give insight to economic status, and compiled of various flavors and ingredients, food can describe the geographical location.

Food isn’t just something that we consume. It’s a cultural experience in itself.

With that being said, che mangiamo? What shall we eat?
