Food, Love, & MemoriesPosted: April 29, 2014
Some of our most evocative memories arise from shared meals with friends or strangers, being fed by our mothers as children (or adults), or a simple sniff of the spice jar. We break bread, and learn something about ourselves and our relationship to others & the world in the process.
