Food, Fun and Friends …

Greetings readers! This month’s editorial theme is all about the world of culturally rich foods: Ethnic Cuisine and Super Spices. I love to explore the world of culinary diversity and eclectic styles. From Asian-, Thai- and Indian-inspired dishes to Italian and Greek flavor-packed creations, food is often my vehicle of taking a trip around the world by eating unique and out-of-this-world entrees, desserts and other tasty treats. For me … the spicier and, as my husband calls it, “stranger” the better! Food provides vital nutrition, often regenerates creativity and inspiration by rejuvenating the mind and spirit, and, believe it or not, is a fabulous relationship builder.

When reflecting on the very nature and power of food, popular chef and TV personality Guy Fieri once stated: “Cooking is all about people. Food is maybe the only universal thing that really has the power to bring everyone together. No matter what culture, everywhere around the world, people get together to eat.” I love Fieri, and he hits the mark with this one.

I invite you to take an exciting culinary editorial trip into the world of unique foods, natural spices and tasty treats that promote good health and wellness while giving the taste buds and tongue the ride of a lifetime. Invite friends and family over for a “relationship-building” exercise and utilize some of the great spices and dishes that you are about to discover. Food has always proven to be the perfect tool to fill a room full of people. Read and enjoy, and if you’re hungry afterward—you know what to do!

Bon Appetit,

Annette Briggs
