Professor Padron continues his exploration of how geography and history have shaped the food patterns and cultures of countries and regions throughout the world. Part two opens with the Iberian Peninsula then quickly moves to Greece and the Middle East. The whirlwind tour’s final stop is Africa, another rich repository of varied diets. This course highlights the diversity of food cultures, but it also allows us to reflect on our own cultural values embedded in what and how we eat and to share lore about food cultures we’ve encountered in our travels. Professor Padron is ready to serve up another delicious meal of insights into the world’s food cultures. Come tuck in!
