Flavor Friday

The world is a tasty place! Check out this slide show featuring what people eat in different countries. It comes from the book Hungry Planet:What the World Eats, by award-winning authors Peter Menzel and Faith D’Aluisio, which illustrates 30 families from all over the world and the food that they eat in a week. 

The images from Hungry Planet demonstrate how elements of geography, such as location, climate, economic conditions, and transportation infrastructure, all contribute to what and how much we eat. Imagine what it would be like to live in a different country, with different resources, and different geography. What is on the shelves at the store? What can you buy at the local market? Do you have space for a garden?

For those with a braver pallette, check out the video below from National Geographic’s YouTube Channel. Do you think you have the stomach for it?
