My passion is food. Eating it. Studying it. Making it....and Eating it!!!          Food is my passion. And this passion is deeply intertwined with my love for working with people from diverse backgrounds and cultures. What we eat is perhaps the most simple yet profound activity that links all human beings. Food can bridge the gap that is assumed between two people who grew up in countries thousands of miles apart. I have often found in my travels that friendships can quickly be conjured just by sharing a meal with the locals.

         I have eaten everything from iguana in Costa Rica to rabbit head in Chengdu; keeping an open mind is key.

         Just as I love food infused with culture and local pride, I am equally saddened and concerned by the “food” and eating habits that are now the norm in America due to the expansion of conventional and industrial practices. My father is second-generation Italian and so my childhood was somewhat abnormal in that I spent every dinner eating with my family and sharing home-cooked food often with ingredients grown in our garden. These habits changed as I grew older and I did not realize how much I missed the emphasis on high quality ingredients and the frequent pairing of eating and socializing until I went to China for a study abroad semester in Shanghai. While I became enamored with the food culture in Shanghai, my inclination to romanticize the food system in China was quickly halted  as I became aware that more and more people were buying packaged foods, KFC, and fruits and vegetables loaded with harmful chemicals. I became curious about how people from diverse social backgrounds might feel about these changes and how the burgeoning sustainable food movement in China is fueled by different concerns, goals, and understandings than the one underway in America.
