|Every culture has their own bread- is ours destined to be tasteless white bread?|
but we also eat curtido, kimchi, pupusas, gyro, tamales (I'm including this even though I refuse to make them, because my sister does), mesir wat and injera, kosher sour pickles, eggplant Parmesan, coconut curry... and tens of dishes that blend the flavors found in these dishes in ways that would probably make them unrecognizable to their cultures of origin. And now, in the information age, we have access not only to the culture of our friends and neighbors but of the entire world. So when I want to make authentic Hungarian Sun Pickles all I need to do is look up the recipe on the internet. Or when I want to find a source of fresh picked strawberries or pastured local beef I know where to turn.
