If you travel, you have to eat. (Even if you don’t travel, you have to eat.) Many people travel eat. And there's a reason that traveling and eating go hand in hand: Food is never just food--it’s history, it's culture. It's also love, politics, luxury, necessity, art, and science. It is inextricable from both its place of origin and wherever it’s served.
