My Offal Experiment is both literal and metaphorical.
This led me to wonder about the other food practices, cultures, methods we are throwing away as we speed towards an increasingly industrialized, standardized food culture? What does it mean when our palates no longer appreciate strong, clear flavours? When the same apple is found at a thousand of the same stores across the nation? When our food no longer speaks of place or time or season or history?
These questions inform my desire to not only expand my palate but also my journey into the guts of food culture.
