Another Harvest Feast

People around the world celebrate the fall harvest with a feast, just as we will celebrate Thanksgiving next week. Foods, like people and ideas, also travel the world. The turkey and corn that the native Americans shared with the Pilgrims at the first Thanksgiving dinner were originally domesticated long before in central Mexico. What about the other foods on your holiday table. Where in the world were they first grown, and by whom?


Thanksgiving is probably my favorite holiday of the year, for family
and friends more than dinner, but our holiday food is remarkable too.
It's an international feast. We shouldn't take anything for granted.
