Picchu to the Serengeti
I first saw him in Peru on top of
Machu Picchu, and he wanted to talk about quinoa. I was hoping for a philosophical
discussion about the ancient Incas or the more ancient Andes Mountains,
but he wanted to talk about his breakfast.
Bill explained that he had eaten something
called quinoa which was supposed to be one of the most nutritious grains.
He wanted to know more about cooking it. Then he commented philosophically
on Machu Picchu. Food and philosophy came together: we were friends instantly.
Our friendship grew on these two avenues,
and I watched Bill go on to conquer quinoa, that potent and nutritious
grain. Not satisfied, he took off on an African safari and came back with
more philosophy, more recipes and a vocabulary of African foods that caught
my own curiosity.
This international man has a food
philosophy: "I pretty much like all types of cooking. I don't have
one favorite type. Good cooking is like good music, there are many different
types but when you hear it you know there is something to it."
Bibi is a food lover who is interested in all foods from all places. Like
her friend, Bill, she knows it when she hears it.
