Intro

The origin of food and it’s cultural significance is some of what we discuss in this cooking session. We talk about the impact of things like religion and climate on food culture as well as where spices came from & its impact on history. We learn interesting trivia for example how sushi was made with fermented fish from rice & salt and then disregarded, this has now changed to a fast food item where the rice is eaten. Whether it be Western, Eastern, African, Middle Eastern or Latin culture you wish to focus on, we have the incursion for you!
