In many parts of the world, the standard greeting is not “How are you today?” but instead, “Have you eaten yet?”
At Shatter the Looking Glass Magazine, we see sharing a meal is an integral part of understanding culture. Not only is it a way to learn about flavors and exotic cuisine, but it is a way to make friends and tell stories, to dissolve the continental divide through nourishment and common experience.
Chowing down food when travelling is also a test. How far will you go to be a savvy or ethical traveler? What would you eat out of respect for a host? Or, when someone opens their door and offers you something that you might never eat in other circumstances?
The sharing of a meal is a reminder of history, culture, economics, and social undertones
of a nation. To celebrate this, we are going to start accepting submissions of your favorite recipes from around the world. Each recipe must be shared with a story, so travelers like you can learn, reminisce, and discover some of the most fascinating dishes and stories in the world.
It’s about opening your belly, your heart…and perhaps the anti-acids.
We want you to share your favorite recipes from your time travelling, food stories, or culinary innovation, please submit them to email@example.com
