Food is a language, one that crosses borders, and one that we all speak. It’s full of slang, and shorthand, and we use each other’s words, and ingredients, and techniques, but when we sit down at the table we all know what each other are saying.
Food is one of the basic units of life & living. This gives us a commonality that transcends our differences. Our social functions small or large, religious celebration, iconography & symbolism and political diplomacy are centred around, and punctuated by, the offering of food.
