As we approach the holidays, and celebrate our loved ones with fancy feasts of food, let’s think about the role cooking and food has in our families. What role does food play in your life? What traditions have your family created around the kitchen and the dinner table?
Chef Marcus Samuelsson, a world renowned and remarkable chef, restaurateur and author, and star on Food Network, encourages us to change the way we think about food, and challenges us to eat with a spiritual compass. Marcus has a phenomenal perspective on food, culture, and the dynamic expression of personal and cultural identity through the language of cooking. In his article, “Eating With a Spiritual Compass,” Samuelsson begins a conversation about one’s relationship with food and the spiritual impact it has on one’s life, health, community and environment.
