“Food is everything we are. It's an extension of nationalist feeling, ethnic feeling, your personal history, your province, your region, your tribe, your grandma. Its inseparable from those from the get-go” – Anthony Bourdain Everyone loves to eat. But what is the cultural aspect of the foods we consume? Food culture is the practices, attitudes, and beliefs as well as the networks and institutions surrounding the production, distribution, and consumption of food. In this lively discussion about something every human on earth indulges in, host Rose invites Sharanya, guest Alix, and Nihal to the table. In her segment, The Scribble, Sharanya meshes two of her favorite things, writing and food, to create a cinquain poem about hot dogs. In the second segment, Rose and her long-time food sister, Alix, engage in a worldwide tour of great restaurants, the culture behind the food, and the importance of sitting down with family and friends to dish it up over delicious cuisine. Nihal shows us how the world is connected through the love of cooking and expressing culture through food, usually throughout generations. Are you hungry yet? Remember, you are what you eat. Bon Appetit!
