As we've learned in the reading on subsistence methods, food connects us to a much larger cultural system.  Food is also highly symbolic.  There are times when we eat specially prepared foods for traditions and celebrations (for example, birthday cake) and avoid foods that are socially unacceptable, based on our cultural beliefs (like not eating meat during Lent for Catholics).  What is one food item or dish that you feel has an important cultural significance to you?  How does your chosen food reflect the larger culture of your family, your community, your state or beyond?
