"The only way to truly experience a different culture is through their food"-Andrew Zimmern
If you truly want to get to know a culture, try their food. That is why I like to try food from many different cultures. The food of a certain culture is shaped by the environment and the attitude of people. Generally, people just ate what grew their. Over time, people discovered how to take these ingredients and make it truly beautiful. Ethiopian food, as it turns out tastes a lot like South Indian food. The flavors are very similar. Yu sit around a table and they bring you many stews, dhals, and roasted vegetables, all flavored using a spice mix called berbere, and a flat bread, similar to a crepe is used to scoop up these toppings and eat it. This was just one example of trying food from many different cultures. I hope to keep trying new foods with my family.
