The Travel Issue
What we learn from other cultures, global cuisines and new experiences enriches our lies and our community at home.
Last year we answered the question of why a local food magazine is producing a Travel Issue with the following: Travel allows us the time and space to feel more deeply, think more broadly and taste more fully. We find our common ground as we celebrate our differences and expand our horizons. What we learn from other cultures, global cuisines and new experiences enriches our lives and our community at home.
In this issue, we explore what we can take away from a trip to Bolivia to better understand the future of foodways. Amid all the turmoil in the Middle East, we take a moment to celebrate the riches of Syrian cuisine. A work trip to Hawaii might find us hunting ferns and other wild things. Did you know that you can find key ingredients to Thai street food growing right here in Central Texas on the Simmons Family Farm? And when planning your next family vacation, consider staying on a working farm—we’ll give you some tips on where to find them.
