“Tell me what you eat, and I will tell you who you are” ~ Brillat-Savarin. Food is more than just the combination of nutrients we ingest. Food creates interaction and introspection. Food is culture, and the study of this culture, or foodways, is a growing field which focuses on how we interact with each other through and around food. Folklorist Lucy M.
