I was inspired by a call on the Splendid Table a few weeks ago. The caller mentioned that she and her kids would pick a culture and explored it through their food. I love this idea (research projects! food! nerdiness!). I thought that it would be cool for me, while researching our annual vacation destinations, to add a bit of culinary history to the mix. This is the spot where I’m going to compile my research and perhaps post recipes and cookbook reviews. Maybe as the kids get a little older, they’ll play too.
