All this month, to celebrate our Global Gourmet issue, the blogs at WWB will feature guest essays by food writers and bloggers from around the world on an aspect of the food culture of their stomping grounds that stands out for them. A brief sampling of the courses to come:
Niloufer Ichaporia King walks us through old-world café dining in Bombay. Cenk Sönmezsoy takes a trip to the other side and gives us the scoop on a meal on the Asian side of bi-continental İstanbul. Karen Coates reports on hunger, the food crisis and the legacy of improvisation it has created in Cambodia. Caroline Shin stays up all night and reports on midnight feasts in Buenos Aires, and Aun Koh wakes up and goes out hunting for the perfect roti prata in multi-culti Singapore. Alexandra Grigorieva holds forth on language in Russian food culture and Carolyn Jung connects with the past through homestyle Chinese cooking in San Jose.
We’re delighted to be the venue for this exciting gathering of food and literature fanatics from all corners and we do hope you’ll join in the discussion.
Robyn Eckhardt gets the ball rolling with her essay on becoming a familiar face at her favorite restaurant in Kuala Lumpur.
