Yesterday, in Aji’s diary on indigenous food traditions, I suggested a diary series on food from all over our country and the world.
I think the diary series could be called Food, glorious food!
My own cultural background is Ashkenazi and the food associated with that tradition is what is often (and mistakenly) known as “Jewish food” in the USA, partly because the vast majority of Jews in America are Ashkenazi rather than Sephardi (for more on these two groups see this article I wrote on Yahoo Voices. When I lived in Israel I had an Iraqi Jewish girlfriend – I was going to write a book to be called gefilte fish and couscous.
But even what the Jews ate in Poland and Russia and Germany isn’t exactly what they eat here (although bagels and bialys were definitely known over there).
But I like food from many regions of the world.
I am not much of a cook, but I can certainly find recipes online.
Is there interest in this series?
