my lived global experiences

food i eat

ice cream originated in china, dating back to around 3000 BCE, before making its way to europe in the 17th century (foodtimeline.org)

mint chocolate chip ice cream is my favorite.

donuts have been around so long, archaeologists are still finding remnants of them in native american settlements. our donut today comes from the dutch “oily cakes” (smithsonianmag.com)

the initial idea of hamburgers DID come from hamburg, germany, but the sandwich element came later during the industrial evolution of america (communitytable.parade.com)

tulips

the wooden shoe tulip festival is held in april, near portland, oregon.

tulips used to be the driving force behind holland’s economy, creating “tulip mania” in the mid 17th century (holland.com). the wooden shoe festival employs holland-esque activities and foods, such as bratwurst.
