We have all heard the expression, “you are what you eat,” but we often don’t think about the importance not only of what we eat, but who we eat with — the social component of food. Through shared meals at family gatherings, celebrations and life events, food is what connects us to one another. This is why food is involved in so many religious and cultural rituals worldwide. The food we eat is evocative; it reminds us of family, home, community and love.
