Ethnic Influences On The Move In U.S. Foodservice

Contact Ethnic Influences On The Move In U.S. Foodservice
U.S. foodservice operators have adapted their menus to reflect a more diverse population in recent years. Research on menu trends presented during the National Restaurant Show at McCormick Place indicated Asian and Middle Eastern cuisine are making significant inroads. As restaurants change their menus to reflect more diverse consumer tastes, convenience service operators have to recognize a wider range of customer preferences to win their fair share of consumer food spending.
Researchers Lizzy Freier, managing editor of menu analysis for Technomic, a foodservice researcher, and Nancy Kruse, the president of The Kruse Company, a foodservice consultancy, presented highlights from a 2018 Technomic survey and offered an analysis of ethnic trends in U.S. foodservice.
The menu samples demonstrated that Asian and Middle Eastern cuisine are on the rise in all U.S. geographic regions, not just those with large Asian and Middle Eastern populations.
Chinese cuisine continues to be the dominant Asian cuisine, Freier said. The Technomic survey found that 66 percent of U.S. consumers consider Chinese food exciting. And while Chinese cuisine maintains its dominance, other Asian countries are gaining popularity. Japanese food was cited as a favorite by 50 percent of the survey respondents, followed by Thai cuisine, cited by 43 percent; Korean food, 36 percent; Indian fare, 34 percent; and Vietnamese cuisine, 28 percent.
The research also found that add-ons are one of the fastest growing meal segments on U.S. menus. Freier noted that Korean kimchee, a side dish of salted and fermented vegetables, has gained favor as an add-on.
U.S. establishments that have recently offered Korean fare on their menus include the Veggie Grill chain which offers Koreatown Tacos with gochujang sauce; Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, California features Korean Bibima bap bowl with gochujang aioli; Steingold’s of Chicago offers a Sister-in-Law sandwich with dill kimchee; and Ba Bellies in Peachtree Corners, Georgia offers BB Street Corn with kimchee remoulade.
Japanese spice has also sustained its influence on U.S. menus, the researchers noted. The Just Salad chain offers Tokyo Supergreens Salad with Furikake – consisting of dried fish, sesame seeds and seaweed – while the Lazy Dog Restaurant & Bar chain offers Togarashi Edamame Beans, which consists of red chile, orange peel, sesame and ginger.
Another meal segment that has shown growth in the U.S. is limited time offers, known as LTOs. In this menu category, Middle Eastern fare has played a growing role, Freier said.
The San Francisco based Sajj Mediterranean chain offers chocolate hummus, which includes hummus, tahini, chickpeas, chocolate hazelnut spread, cocoa powder, vanilla, cinnamon and maple syrup. Little Bean in Portland, Oregon offers chickpea ice cream that is gluten-free, nut-free and dairy-free.
Starbucks offers za’atar chicken salad with green herbs sesame and olive oil; Zoe’s Kitchen in Charlotte, N.C. offers baked falafel pita with a hot sauce known as schug, which consists of cilantro, garlic and hot pepper; Empellon AI Pastor in New York, N.Y. offers a fried chicken sandwich with garlic, cucumber, labneh and dill; Zov’s in Irvine, California offers kebab with marinated chicken breast or beef tenderloin, along with tomato cucumber salad, jasmine rice pilaf and yogurt mint sauce.
Balkan flavors are also gaining favor, Freier said. Oran Mor in Nantucket, Massachusetts offers roasted oysters bourguignon, while Balkan Treat Box in Webster Groves, Missouri, features Pide, a pizza like dish.

Singapore Food Festival returns with LiHO avocado kopi and Ya Kun Pocky

Avocado kopi, a vegan food crawl and the ultimate chilli crab ramen – these are some of the things food lovers can look forward to at the upcoming Singapore Food Festival (SFF).
The annual celebration of local cuisine is back for its 26th year with the theme “Savour Singapore in every bite”. The event is dedicated to local cuisine and talent, celebrating the country’s multicultural heritage.
Twenty event partners have come together to offer a myriad of dining concepts and gastronomic experiences during the festival that will run from Jul 12 to 28.
The food festival’s main event, STREAT, will be back. The two-day event will offer a range of traditional hawker fare and mod-sin interpretations of Singapore street food from 12 eateries.
Highlights include duck rice bento from Jin Ji Teochew Braised Duck and Kway Chap, chicken rice kueh pie tee from Salted & Hung, as well as an Impossible Burger and Fat Papas collaboration.
Diners will also be entertained by local music acts Charlie Lim and Glen Wee, and have the opportunity to attend workshops and masterclasses by local culinary talents.
STREAT will kick off from 5pm on Jul 12 at The Promontory @ Marina Bay.
MODERNITY, CULTURE, TRADITION AND ART: HIGHLIGHTS
Vendors at the Singapore Food Festival will be grouped into four different categories – Modernity, Culture, Tradition and Art.
Here’s a taste of what diners can look forward to:
1. The Ultimate Chilli Crab Ramen by Ippudo x No Signboard Seafood (Modernity)
Only two Ippudo Ramen outlets – Marina Bay Sands and Mandarin Gallery – will serve this dish in the month of July. (Photo: Darius Boey) This may be a fan favourite – the Ultimate Chilli Crab Ramen was dreamed up by Japanese ramen chain Ippudo and famous seafood restaurant No Signboard. The dish brings together tonkotsu ramen broth with No Signboard’s signature chilli crab sauce, giving it a spicy and savoury kick.
The Ultimate Chilli Crab Ramen’s noodles, which have a springy texture, are customised for the dish – which also comes with toppings such as an umami egg, a whole crab claw and fried mantou.
Only 30 bowls of this special ramen dish will be served every day at two Ippudo outlets – Mandarin Gallery and Marina Bay Sands – and it will be available in the month of July.
2. Avocado Kopi by LiHo
You can find avocado kopi at selected LiHo outlets around Singapore from Jul 12 to Sep 30. (Photo: Darius Boey) Bubble tea lovers can pick up an avocado kopi from selected LiHO outlets.
The new concoction blends the sweet and creamy avocado flavour with a nutty and chocolatey brew, resulting in a smooth and flavour-packed beverage. It will be available at selected LiHo outlets from Jul 12 to Sep 20, 2019.
This is the first time that LiHo is participating in the Singapore Food Festival, along with 7-Eleven and Glico. Glico is also going local, with a limited edition Pocky x Ya Kun Kaya Toast & Kopi O.
3. Sor Hei by Project Plait X Artistry (Art)
Chilled squid ink pasta with smoked golden trout, a dish from the five-course menu as part of the food and contemporary dance experience, held in a black and white colonial house near Mount Faber. (Photo: Darius Boey) What does dance have to do with food?
Well, as part of the art category, chef Nixon Low and dancer Naomi Tan are coming together to create a unique experience for diners by combining a five-dish menu with a contemporary dance exhibition, named The Mem’s Servants.
This will be held in four interconnected rooms in a black-and-white colonial house near Mount Faber, where diners are required to enter different rooms for each dish.
One of the dishes featured is called Sor Hei. It’s chilled squid ink pasta with smoked golden trout, giving diners a subtle tinge of flavour past the slightly salty squid ink. It is complemented with golden tobiko (flying fish roe), cauliflower puree and pickled carrots to set up a complex but flavourful dish.
4. Jimami Tofu 5D Experience by Cookyn Ink (Art)

Drawing inspiration from the award-winning 2017 Singaporean-Japanese drama film Jimami Tofu, Cookyn Inc will prepare a seven-course dinner menu for diners, all of which are prepared and served at the same time the movie is being screened.
The idea is to provide an all-round experience, allowing diners to use their five senses.
Jimami tofu – naturally – is one of the dishes, along with sweet potato croquette. Both are of Okinawan origin, with the Jimami tofu, a mixture of tapioca and quinoa, having a smooth, sticky and glutinous rice ball-esque texture with sweetened soy sauce.
The croquettes, on the other hand, are quite the opposite – crispy on the outside and pasty on the inside with finely hand-grated sweet potato.
Diners can also look forward to taking pictures with the chefs and cast of the movie.
5. Mutton Keema from Indian Restaurants Association (Tradition)

This is a collaboration between the Indian Restaurants Association Singapore (IRAS) and Singapore Tourism Board (STB).
One of the highlights is Mutton Keema, essentially minced mutton with Indian breads ranging from naan, chapati, coin prata and a normal-sized prata.
The meat, delicate yet juicy, comes with soft potatoes and peas. The thick gravy adds a spicy final touch to the Keema, due to the fragrant herbs used in its creation.
The Indian Food Festival will include 16 food carts along Campbell Lane, allowing visitors to experience Singapore’s heritage through food.
OTHER EVENTS
Vegans – heads up. The Singapore Vegan Food Crawl will take diners to Chinatown, Geylang Serai and Little India to discover the booming vegan street food culture, while the Singapore Tea Festival on Jul 19 will bring a curated line-up of artisanal teas, workshops and snack brands for the perfect teatime experience.
Festival-goers can also look forward to The Mem’s Servants from Jul 24 to 27, a unique five-course food and contemporary dance experience that’ll bring to life untold stories from the cooks and amahs (nannies) who served at black-and-white colonial houses.
Ranita Sundramoorthy, Director of Retail and Dining, Singapore Tourism Board, said: “With this year’s robust line-up of events, from private chef dinners and food tours around our heritage districts, to theatrical dining experiences – Singaporeans and visitors will be able to taste Singapore’s diverse flavours and experience our food obsession first-hand.”
She added: “In its 26th year, the Festival continues to be a highlight on the Singapore foodie calendar. SFF is a compelling testament to the richness and diversity of our food scene, further cementing our city-state’s reputation as a global culinary capital.”

The World’s 50 Best Restaurants: Spain and Denmark lead the way (but a poor show for UK)

M irazur, a restaurant on the French Riviera resort town of Menton, has picked up the coveted world’s best restaurant award at the 2019 World’s 50 Best Restaurant awards, up two spots from a third place finish last year.
“Wow, wow, wow, wow,” said a clearly elated Mauro Colagreco, Mirazur’s chef. “What a crazy year, three Michelin stars and number one in the world, all in the same year. It’s a year I will remember forever.”
In a disappointing year for the UK, which saw its share of top 50 establishments drop from four to two, the top three was rounded off by Copenhagen’s Noma in second spot, and Asador Etzebarri from the Basque Country, Spain, which came third. Spain had the most establishments in the top 50, with seven, many of them in the Basque country. The United States earned six spots.
Britain’s highest-placing restaurant was London’s The Clove Club , which back in 2013 was described as committing “the cardinal sin of trying to reinvent the sacred chipped potato” when reviewed by the Telegraph. It jumped from 33rd to 27th.
The second UK entry, Lyle’s , also in the capital, climbed from 38th to 33rd. Both are situated in Shoreditch which has become a hub for the sort of destinations favoured by the judges.
T he World’s 50 Best Restaurant list is never far from controversy. Last year it was criticised for awarding the best female chef gong to Clare Smyth of Core by Clare Smyth in London; there was no equivalent award for men. Despite the furore, this year the best female chef award was given to Daniela Soto-Innes of Cosme in New York City. Overall, the top 50 list included just five restaurants run by female chefs, the same as last year.
Other prizes A key difference in the awards this year, which were held in Singapore, is that previous winners have been barred from consideration. Thus Osteria Francescana in Modena, which has finished in the top three every year since 2013, and won in 2016 and 2018, was ineligible. Noma, which won from 2010-2012 and 2014 this year came second, allowed entry because its new building and concept were deemed novel enough.
However, Osteria Francescana joined former winners in a “best of the best” group, a sort of restaurant hall of fame. These include ElBulli, The French Laundry, The Fat Duck, Noma (the original incarnation), El Celler de Can Roca and Eleven Madison Park.
It was a good year for Copenhagen, with two restaurants in the top five, while Spain again did well with three in the top 10. Gaggan in Bangkok, which is closing next year, was Asia’s highest entry at four, while Lima, Peru once again proved its culinary credentials with two in the top 10 (the same as France, and two more than Tokyo).
The World’s 50 Best Restaurants 1. Mirazur (Menton, France) BEST RESTAURANT IN EUROPE AND BEST RESTAURANT IN THE WORLD
R un by Argentinian chef Mauro Colagreco, the restaurant is located near the Italian border and serves modern French cuisine with an Italian influence. It earned its third Michelin star this year, and according to the Michelin Guide is “sleekly contemporary with magnificent views of the sea and the old town.”
2. Noma (Copengagen, Denmark) HIGHEST NEW ENTRY
A four-time winner in its previous iteration, Noma inspired a galaxy of chefs and spearheaded the rise of fermenting, foraging, pickling and preserving. It closed in 2017 and has now reopened with gilded chef René Redzepi still on board with a menu that rotates throughout the year, depending on the season.
3. Asador Etxebarri (Atxondo, Spain)
Set in the culinary powerhouse that is the Basque Country, Asador Etxebarri, which holds one Michelin star, prides itself on old-school cooking. Everything is done over a grill, even desserts, and the food has been described as “an unadulterated pleasure for lovers of simply grilled and roasted dishes.”
4. Gaggan (Bangkok, Thailand) BEST RESTAURANT IN ASIA
Indian chef Gaggan Anand has starred in the celebrated Netflix series Chef’s Table and serves up a novel take on Indian cuisine at his eponymous Bangkok restaurant. Gaggan has been praised for its “creative, modern reinvention of traditional Indian cuisine” in the Telegraph .
5. Geranium (Copenhagen, Denmark)
W ith three Michelin stars and run by a former winner of the world’s best chef title, Rasmus Kofoed, Geranium “turns food into art, with endless imagination.” It came top in a recent list of must-visit Nordic restaurants in the Telegraph.
6. Central (Lima, Peru) BEST RESTAURANT IN SOUTH AMERICA
Chefs Virgilio Martinez and Pía León serve up a Peruvian menu with international touches in Lima, a city famous for its cuisine. According to World’s 50 Best, Central “takes diners on a journey through every altitude, from 20 metres below sea level to 4,100 metres above over 17+ courses”.
7. Mugaritz (San Sebastian, Spain)
The second-highest Basque entry, Murgaritz has two Michelin stars and, according to Portuguese chef Nuno Mendes, “the food is very creative, very artistic – probably more artistic than most places I’ve been to.” Diners are treated to up to 24 dishes with a highlight being egg yolk with sea urchin.
8. Arpège (Paris, France)
Since 1986 Alain Passard has rune Arpege in the French capital. It still holds three Michelin stars (it has since 1996) and serves a vegetable-focused French menu with fresh ingredients that “never see the inside of a refrigerator.”
Telegraph columnist Stephen Harris is a big fan: “I quickly realised that this was special: everything tasted so intensely of what it was. The produce of a garden in Normandy had been translated to a three-star restaurant in Paris, but you could still taste the earth. I didn’t know how to explain what I was eating – I waffled on about it being like standing in a garden in summer just after the rain had stopped.”
9. Disfrutar (Barcelona, Spain)
A big jump from 18th last year, Disfrutar, yet another Spanish top 10, is run by three chefs who previously were part of the legendary ElBulli. Signature dishes include gazpacho in sandwich form, crispy egg yolk, liquid salad and hare bonbons.
10. Maido (Lima, Peru)
Maido serves a Nikkei menu, which fuses Japanese and Peruvian cooking. The Lima-born chef is Mitsuharu Tsumura, who seeks out rare ingredients in the Amazon to provide a dining experience far removed from what you might expect to find in fine-dining establishments in Europe or North America.
11. Den (Tokyo, Japan) ART OF HOSPITALITY AWARD
12. Pujol (Mexico City, Mexico) BEST RESTAURANT IN NORTH AMERICA
13. White Rabbit (Moscow, Russia)
14. Azurmendi ( Larrabetzu, Spain) HIGHEST CLIMBER AWARD
15. Septime (Paris, France)
16. Alain Ducasse au Plaza Athénée (Paris, France)
17. Steirereck (Vienna, Austria)
18. Odette (Singapore)
19. Twins Garden (Moscow, Russia)

21. Frantzén (Stockholm, Sweden)

26. Boragó (Santiago, Chile)
27. The Clove Club (London, United Kingdom)

The World’s 30 Best Places to Visit in 2019-20

Using reader input and expert analysis, U.S. News identified the latest can’t-miss vacations. By Tilly Pecker , Contributor June 25, 2019 By Tilly Pecker , Contributor June 25, 2019, at 12:01 a.m. View all in one page 1 of 31 (Getty Images) Let exploration, relaxation or a mix of the two guide you toward your next getaway. Planning a vacation may sound simple, but knowing the world is filled with so many diverse destinations can make organizing a trip a challenging task. Using a methodology that takes into account expert analysis and user opinions, plus editor evaluations of everything from food and culture to sights and accessibility, U.S. News determined the World’s Best Places to Visit in 2019-20. Whether you’re looking for a cosmopolitan city, a picture-perfect island, a mountain retreat or something else entirely, the destinations on this ranking will help inspire you to book your next vacation. (Getty Images) 30. Amalfi Coast, Italy This stretch of coastline along southwestern Italy will blow you away. The views of colorful pastel houses overlooking the Gulf of Salerno’s azure horizon are beyond compare, and the food is equally impressive. Restaurants in the Amalfi Coast offer some of the freshest and most flavorful seafood and pasta imaginable. This vacation spot also accommodates travelers of all budgets, with luxury resorts and wallet-friendly vacation rental options. Among visitors’ favorite spots in the Amalfi Coast: the scenic cliffs lining Positano and the secluded beaches of Praiano. To make the most of your stay, visit in the spring or fall to enjoy comfortable temperatures (with highs in the 60s and 70s) and fewer crowds.

To make the most of your stay, visit in the spring or fall to enjoy comfortable temperatures (with highs in the 60s and 70s) and fewer crowds. 29. Costa Rica Costa Rica’ s jungle will bring out the adventurous side of any visitor. You can’t leave this rugged rainforest without zip lining beneath its tree canopy, which stretches for miles. While this rugged country is called the “rich coast” because it is believed to be full of precious metals, Costa Rica is rich in diverse wildlife, too – 52 species of hummingbirds, spider monkeys and sloths are just a few animals you might encounter while on vacation here. Outside the rainforests, you will find one of the world’s most active volcanoes ( Arenal Volcano ), top-notch whitewater rafting, more than 800 miles of shoreline and numerous beaches. Travelers should enjoy joining Costa Ricans and their “pura vida” lifestyle during the dry season from mid-December to April. 28. Great Barrier Reef The Great Barrier Reef cannot be missed – literally: You can see the world’s largest living structure from outer space. With nearly 3,000 coral reefs, 900-some islands and more than 1,500 species of fish, the Great Barrier Reef is one of the planet’s most impressive destinations. Consistent tropical weather makes for excellent scuba diving opportunities year-round, meaning plenty of chances to see incredible coral, colorful fish, humpback whales and spinner dolphins. Plus, visitors can enjoy snorkeling, helicopter tours and glass-bottomed boat adventures. After you’ve gotten your fill of the water, step ashore to experience Kuranda’s rainforest (accessible via the Kuranda Scenic Railway ), the Cairns Botanic Gardens and Hartley’s Crocodile Adventures . 27. Rio de Janeiro Among Rio de Janeiro ‘s bragging rights, the Christ the Redeemer statue atop Mount Corcovado is considered one of the New Seven Wonders of the World. In this city of contrasts, 1,000-year-old rocky peaks act as a backdrop to the ever-evolving metropolis. Travelers can enjoy dramatic views of the Marvelous City from Sugarloaf Mountain’s summit or from down below at Copacabana Beach . After a day of adventure, kick back at one of the many luxury lodging options with a caipirinha and renowned Brazilian barbecue. If you plan to visit in February, bring glitter and bright clothing to celebrate and fit in with the samba dancers sweeping the streets for the Carnival festival. 26. Prague You can’t go wrong with potato soup, a fresh trdelnik (a sweet, sugar-topped, fire-cooked pastry) and a cup of mulled hot wine, but there’s more to Prague than its comforting cuisine. The Prague Castle , Charles Bridge and Gothic architecture throughout the city offer a romantic feel. You should plan to wander along the cobblestone streets of the Mala Strana neighborhood, snap a photo of the John Lennon Wall and break for a Pilsner after a day of sightseeing (after all, beer is often cheaper than water here). Prague’s many museums are within walking distance of the Old Town Square , where the 600-year-old astronomical clock puts on a performance every hour. 25. St. Lucia St. Lucia ‘s tranquil beaches make for a sweet escape – and that’s before you try the island’s irresistible handmade chocolate. St. Lucia lures travelers interested in chocolate, but it also flaunts the world’s only drive-in volcano. The bubbling mud in the sulfur springs surrounding the dormant volcano is said to have healing properties, so be sure to lather up before swimming at the nearby Toraille Waterfall. This lush island also offers opportunities for hiking the Piton mountains, relaxing on serene beaches and zip lining through the Chassin region’s rainforests. Travelers can enjoy winding down after an active day at one of St. Lucia’s luxurious lodging options, which range from hotels with infinity pools that overlook the Pitons to secluded romantic resorts for couples. 24. Santorini, Greece Candlelit dinners overlooking the caldera, unforgettable sunsets at Oia and infinity pools clinging to cliff edges above the Aegean Sea are just a few things to look forward to on the Greek island of Santorini . The scenery here is postcard-worthy: White houses trail the cliffsides, contrasting with the sea’s cobalt and turquoise water. But don’t neglect the fascinating history behind this city: Santorini’s volcanic activity around 1650 B.C. paved the way for the colorful beaches, ancient ruins and unique topography that visitors marvel at today. A few ways to experience Santorini’s beauty include snorkeling in Kamari Beach ‘s water and hiking from Fira to Oia , but you should also plan to dine alfresco while admiring the outstanding orange sunsets over Amoudi Bay. 23. British Virgin Islands If lounging on a white sand beach with a cocktail in hand and views of mountainous cliffs and blue water peppered with sailboats sounds like your ideal vacation, the British Virgin Islands should be your next getaway. Be sure to hop on a boat and discover what some of the numerous islands have to offer. Tortola is home to some great hiking trails and secluded beaches, while Anegada Island’s underwater wrecks entice scuba divers. To beat the crowds and high winter holiday hotel rates, plan your trip to the British Virgin Islands between September and November. Keep in mind: Parts of these islands are still recovering from hurricane damage in 2017. 22. Argentine Patagonia The southernmost tip of South America is teeming with eye-catching landscapes and seascapes – travelers can admire everything from jagged mountaintop glaciers to orcas beneath the water’s surface. Argentine Patagonia is home to some of the world’s purest marvels, including Mount Fitz Roy and the Perito Moreno Glacier . The penguins and seals that inhabit the eastern coastline may not be able to tell you the region’s history, but you can head to the Cave of the Hands to explore distinct cave art that offers a look into Argentine Patagonia’s past. The developing infrastructure of this region in the Andes mountains means visitors can expect to traverse rugged roads on their way from one striking attraction to the next. 21. Banff, Alberta With a skyline dominated by the soaring peaks of Mount Rundle and Mount Cascade, Canada’s first national park (located in Alberta) offers compelling activities for every season. Travelers can shred the Mount Norquay slopes, seek out the northern lights and cozy up in a lodge in the winter; hike mountain trails , relax in hot springs with views of Bow Valley and enjoy hotel deals in the spring; spot wildlife and canoe on Moraine Lake in the summer; and take in the changing leaves and scenery in the fall. 20. Yellowstone National Park, Wyoming, Montana and Idaho Established as the world’s first national park in 1872, Yellowstone is home to a massive web of ecological and geological diversity, including the largest free-roaming herd of bison in America and more than 150 species of birds. Visitors can camp, hike, bike and boat through this 2.2 million-acre park, which was formed atop one of the world’s largest active volcanoes and carved by glaciers, geysers, canyons, thermal pools, basins and valleys. You likely can’t traverse Yellowstone in its entirety in one visit, but after seeing Old Faithful , Yellowstone Lake and Mammoth Hot Springs , you will definitely want to plan a return trip to see some of its lesser-known natural formations as well. 19. Florence, Italy Travelers are sure to fall in love with the artistic treasures and ethereal Arno River that define this Tuscan paradise. The “birthplace of the Renaissance” features quaint streets and detailed fountains that never fail to impress, but aside from wandering through town, visitors should also shop for inexpensive Massimo leather and enjoy an authentic panini. Florence radiates a small-town feel even though some of the world’s most striking architectural and artistic masterpieces, such as the Duomo and Michelangelo’s David sculpture, call this city home. When it’s time to unwind, enjoy a glass of Chianti during sunset at Piazzale Michelangelo , where you will get a panoramic view of Tuscany’s capital. 18. San Francisco San Francisco is filled with attractions for all kinds of travelers. If you’re a foodie or a fashionista, explore Ghirardelli Square (home to some of the nation’s best chocolate) and roam the trendy Fillmore Street to scour boutiques and enjoy top-notch dining experiences. For the best photo opportunities, stop by the pastel Painted Ladies houses, the Presidio neighborhood, historic Chinatown and Pier 39, where playful sea lions sunbathe and relax. Adventure-seekers can get their fix through listening to the riveting escape attempt stories of some of America’s most notorious criminals during an Alcatraz tour. Consider visiting in the fall, when mild temperatures make it comfortable for travelers to walk or bike through the culturally distinct neighborhoods. 17. Amsterdam Amsterdam’ s maze of canals is adorned with a deeper educational and artistic history than you might have thought. Feast your eyes on the impressive artwork within the Van Gogh and Moco museums, say cheers with some beers at the Heineken Experience and put yourself in 15 year-old Anne Frank’s shoes when learning about her Holocaust story at the Anne Frank House . Travelers can also enjoy romantic cruises along the canal, which pass the stunning houses in the Herengracht neighborhood, or stop in eccentric coffee shops in Leidseplein. Other popular activities include swinging over the city at the A’dam Lookout and people-watching in verdant Vondelpark . 16. The Maldives The Maldives is the epitome of paradise, situated in the aquamarine waters of the Indian Ocean. Follow the radiant marine life below the surface by scuba diving or snorkeling to explore the hundreds of coral reefs. Then, head to Vaadhoo Island on the Raa atoll after the sun sets to see thousands of floating plankton that illuminate the shoreline in glowing shades of blue. Known for excellent hospitality, Maldivian resorts often welcome visitors with a fresh coconut drink. And in addition to numerous luxury accommodations, The Maldives offer a plethora of ways to indulge, including fine dining at the Ithaa Undersea Restaurant . 15. Sydney From striking sunsets at Sydney Harbour’s world-famous Opera House to sweeping landscapes along the Blue Mountains, Sydney offers many reasons why millions of visitors vacation here each year. On top of beautiful natural scenery at Manly Beach and The Royal Botanic Garden, this city also boasts legendary chefs and fresh seafood. Treat yourself to a meal and a bloody mary at the Coogee Pavilion after you take on the 4-mile coastal walk from Bondi Beach to Coogee Beach – the cliffside vistas make the journey completely worthwhile. 14. Machu Picchu, Peru One of the New Seven Wonders of the World, this Incan citadel is the ultimate bucket list destination. Once you get to the Cusco region, you have two ways to journey to the grand site: by taking a train to Aguas Calientes and then hopping on a bus, or by devoting yourself to the four-day Inca Trail trek. No matter how you get there, heart-stopping vistas at The Sun Gate, Huayana Picchu and Watchman’s Hunt await your arrival. For the best weather, plan your trip between the end of May and September. However, be sure to book tickets well in advance: A limit of 2,500 people at a time are allowed on these ancient grounds. 13. Dubai In Dubai , visitors can soak up the shoreline views from the tallest building in the world , shred powder on one of the longest indoor ski slopes on Earth and shop at one of the largest malls. Despite new developments in this futuristic city like the Burj Al Arab Jumeirah hotel and Dubai Mall, Dubai holds onto its past, too. Travelers must make time to visit the Al Bastakiya Quarter, the city’s charming historic district, and the spice and gold souks, where vendors flaunt their finest herbs and jewels. Beat the triple digit temperatures by visiting in the winter months, but be prepared to encounter crowds as you enjoy the popular Jumeirah Beach . 12. New York City The Big Apple ‘s five distinct boroughs make this melting pot overflow with ethnically diverse people, eateries and attractions. Let hipsters guide you down the trendy streets of SoHo, line up behind Brooklynites for a slice of award-winning pizza, follow Manhattanites into Fifth Avenue’s finest stores and give your regards to one of Broadway ‘s top-notch performances – the opportunities are endless. In addition to dozens of renowned museums, monumental skyscrapers and some of the world’s most celebrated restaurants, New York City offers hundreds of lodging options , from budget-friendly to splurge-worthy. 11. Barcelona, Spain With a mix of Spanish and Catalan culture, Barcelona is full of authentic flair. Travelers can admire architectural genius Antoni Gaudí’s unique designs at the renowned Sagrada Familia, Park Güell and Gaudí houses. Visitors should also explore the rich history built into the streets of the Gothic Quarter, stop for a cocktail at one of the bars situated along Barceloneta Beach and shop the numerous stores along Passeig de Gràcia. If you’re not already a gastronome, the sizzling patatas bravas (spicy potatoes), paella, fresh seafood and Spanish tortilla will certainly turn you into a foodie. 10. Yosemite National Park, California For travelers who love to hike, rock climb, horseback ride and raft along scenic routes filled with wildlife, Yosemite has just what you’re looking for. Yosemite Valley features some of the world’s most impressive waterfalls, including Bridalveil Fall, Sentinel Fall and Yosemite Falls. Along with numerous thundering cascades, this national park boasts a large population of towering sequoia trees. There are also various hikes to guide you through the massive national park, which lead to monumental rock formations life Half Dome and El Capitan. 9. Grand Canyon National Park, Arizona The Grand Canyon definitely lives up to its name: Stretching along 277 miles of the Colorado River, this iconic American landmark offers biological diversity and awe-inspiring landscapes at every turn. Start at Grand Canyon Village , the most popular entryway to the park and home of Yavapai Point, one of the best places to gaze at the canyon. From there, let the Rim Trail or North Kaibab Trail lead you to lookout points and riverside campgrounds. The park is open year-round, and each season offers different stunning scenery. However, dry and sunny weather in spring and fall months enables visitors to hike along the Grand Canyon’s many different trails and raft down Colorado River. 8. Phuket, Thailand With plunging waterfalls, outstanding (and cheap) street food and nearly 30 beaches to choose from, Phuket welcomes millions of visitors every year. An outdoor enthusiast’s playground by day and a party animal’s paradise by night, this mountainous island has it all. For picture-perfect views, travelers should plan to visit Patong beach, Phang Nga Bay and Promthep Cape . Visitors will encounter daily reminders of Buddhism, Thailand’s official religion, through towering temples and the Big Buddha statue on Mount Nagakerd. What’s more, Phuket’s colorful shrines, elephant sanctuaries and Laem Hin Pier, which features floating restaurants that dish out fresh seafood, are sure to impress. 7. Bora Bora, French Polynesia Surrounded by black rock mountains, hibiscus flowers and cerulean lagoons, Bora Bora is lauded for its peaceful atmosphere. This French Polynesian archipelago attracts couples with secluded floating villas at various overwater resorts , which rest atop a diverse marine ecosystem. Venture out of your serene hideaway and hike through the island’s extinct volcano ( Mount Otemanu ), surrounded by a string of coral islets. The shallow, warm waters are perfect for first-time snorkelers, and experienced water sports enthusiasts can enjoy activities like kayaking, Jet Skiing and paddleboarding. Regardless of whether you’re a beach bum, an adrenaline junkie or somewhere in between, this pristine island will no doubt captivate you. 6. Maui, Hawaii Framed by verdant mountains, beautiful beaches and colorful flora, Maui makes for an incredible getaway. Visitors can enjoy torch-lit hikes through Ka’eleku Cave, scuba diving excursions in the crescent moon-shaped Molokini Crater and sunrises over Haleakala ‘s shield volcano. Maui also boasts some of the biggest surfing waves in the world (at Paia shore) and excellent windsurfing conditions (at Ho’okipa). Whether you stay at one of the world-class resorts in Wailea or Lahaina, or a modest hotel in Kahului, the 30 miles of shoreline are within easy reach. 5. London Whether walking along upscale Oxford Street, discovering quirky Dover Street boutiques or watching a performance in the West End theater district , lively London has something for all types of travelers. Big Ben, the London Eye and Buckingham Palace are among the dozens of world-famous landmarks that visitors can see here. What’s more, the London nightlife scene is unmatched, from its spirited pubs to its edgy clubs. The only challenge you might face is deciding where to eat: This melting pot offers an overwhelming variety of mouthwatering cuisine. Some of London’s must-try meals include a Sunday roast and nandu varuval (Indian-style soft shell crab). 4. Tahiti, French Polynesia Coral gardens, warm water and overwater bungalow resorts are a few of the many characteristics that make Tahiti a jewel in the crown of French Polynesia. Water sports enthusiasts can surf at Papenoo beach or see manta rays, sea turtles, hammerhead sharks and dolphins glide by while scuba diving into vast lagoons and crystal-clear waters. This scenic island invites visitors to see its colorful grounds through off-the-beaten-path hikes along waterfalls and volcanoes. Tahiti’s multicultural influences also make for some uniquely delicious cuisine. Meats and vegetables prepared in a hima’a (an underground oven) and poisson cru (Tahitian tuna ceviche) are must-eat dishes, but resorts also offer staple American meals for less adventurous eaters. 3. Rome Rome’s mouthwatering handmade pasta and pizza will definitely please your palate, but getting a taste of Italian flavor in the Eternal City goes beyond its heavenly dishes. Where classical architecture is second to none, Italy’s cosmopolitan capital seamlessly integrates ancient ruins, columns, piazzas and small-town charm into the most highly populated area of the country. Explore the monumental Colosseum , discover the Sistine Chapel in Vatican City and make a wish at the Trevi Fountain – you’ll find authentic cultural history around every corner. As they say, “When in Rome, do as the Romans do” and enjoy la dolce vita while you can in this ancient city. 2. South Island, New Zealand One of the top outdoor destinations in the world, New Zealand’s South Island possesses some of the purest landscapes and offers ample opportunities for adrenaline-fueled activities.

This Photographer Took Pictures Of Food Kids Eat In One Week Around The World (25 Pics)

What did you have for lunch yesterday? A nice salad? Or maybe some leftover pizza from two days before? This might sound like a simple question but photographer Gregg Segal wanted to analyze it a little deeper. Over the last three years, he visited nine countries all over the world to find out what kids from different cultures eat every week and published a book called Daily Bread: What Kids Eat Around the World .
“I focused on kids because eating habits start young and if you don’t get it right when you’re 9 or 10, it’s going to be a lot harder when you’re older,” said Gregg in an interview with Bored Panda. He says the Daily Bread project grew out of another one of his projects called 7 Days of Garbage , where he asked family, friends, and neighbors to save their garbage for a week and took pictures of them lying in it. “I began to ask, “How have our diets been impacted by this revolution in the way food is produced and consumed?” It struck me that we don’t give enough thought to what’s in our food because we’re not the ones making it!” said Gregg. “We’ve outsourced the most vital ingredient of life, the connective tissue of families and culture. I thought, “What if we keep a journal of everything we eat and drink for one week to bring our focus onto diet & take ownership of the foods we eat?”

#1 Kawakanih Yawalapiti, 9, Upper Xingu Region Of Mato Grosso, Brazil
Image source: Gregg Segal
“Kawakanih Yawalapiti, 9, Upper Xingu region of Mato Grosso, Brazil, photographed August 19, 2018 in Brasilia. Kawakanih, a member of the Yawalapiti tribe, lives in Xingu National Park, a preserve in the Amazonian Basin of Brazil. The park is encircled by cattle ranches and soy. In the past six months alone, 100 million trees have been felled to make room for. When she was born, Kawakanih’s mother, Watatakalu, isolated her from those who didn’t speak Arawaki, their native language. Only 7 speakers of the language remained and her mother was afraid Arawaki would go extinct. In fact, Kawakanih is the first child to be raised speaking Arawaki since the 1940’s and her mother says it’s up to Kawakanih and her two siblings to keep the language alive. Kawakanih has also learned her father’s dialect as well as Portuguese. She loves to read history books, especially ones about the Egyptians. Most of her days are spent playing in the river or helping with chores, like harvesting manioc (cassava), making tapioca and fishing. Every couple of months, Kawakanih travels to Canarana for school where she learns computer skills, though no one in her village owns a computer; there is no electricity or running water. To get to the studio in Brasilia, Kawakanih and her mother traveled 31 hours from their village by boat, bus and car. The red paint Kawakanih wears, traditionally made from ground urucum seeds, protects her from bad spirits and energy. A cluster of seedpods are to the left of Kawakanih’s head. Rainforest tribes have used the entire Urucum plant as medicine for centuries. Kawakanih’s diet is very simple, consisting mainly of fish, tapioca, fruit and nuts. It takes five minutes to catch dinner, says Kawakanih. When you’re hungry, you just go to the river with your net.”
The photographer worked with 60 kids in total, 52 of which were featured in his book. “I began photographing my son and friends of his from school in my backyard in Altadena, CA. I broadened the piece to include kids from other neighborhoods in Los Angeles and then decided the project would resonate more deeply with a global scope,” said Gregg. “I needed a producer in each country to find the kids. The goal was to represent a diversity of diets in each location. If the rate of obesity in a given country was 25%, I aimed to reflect this percentage in my small sample of kids.”
#2 Anchal Sahani, 10, Chembur, Mumbai, India
Image source: Gregg Segal
“Anchal Sahani, Chembur, Mumbai, India (10 yrs old) photographed March 11, 2017 Anchal lives in a tiny tin shack on a construction site in a suburb of Mumbai with her parents and two siblings. Her father makes less than $5 a day, just enough for her mother to prepare okra & cauliflower curry, lentils and roti from scratch. Anchal would like to return to the farm where she was born in Bihar, go to school like other kids and eventually become a teacher, but she’s kept busy with household chores and looking after her baby brother. When she has time, she dresses up and leaves the construction site to enjoy the fragrance of jasmine and lotus and to watch the neighborhood kids playing cricket and running free. While on her walks, Anchal collects brightly colored chocolate wrappers she finds along the road by the grocery store. Anchal wishes her mother would love her the way she loves her baby brother.”
One of the biggest problems the photographer ran into during the project was the language barrier and in many cases had crew members translate and interpret for him. Another one was finding the kids and an experienced crew that met his needs. “I needed a studio space with access to a kitchen to prepare the food and a ceiling height of at least 13 feet (the camera height needed to be a consistent 12+ feet above the subject). Organization was critical but sometimes lacking. Making sure that all of the kids kept thorough journals of everything they ate so that those meals could be accurately reproduced, for instance,” said Gregg. “Fortunately, I had competent producers in most countries. Sometimes, the equipment I had access to wasn’t reliable, which was challenging because the lighting for the pictures needs to be consistent, of course. Another major hurdle was money; this was a very expensive project to produce and generating the funds wasn’t easy. Much of the funding came out of my pocket. I could have really used a benefactor or sponsor!”
#3 Davi Ribeiro De Jesus, 12, Brasilia, Brazil
Image source: Gregg Segal
“Davi Ribeiro de Jesus, 12, Brasilia, Brazil, photographed August 18, 2018. Davi lives with his dad, step-mom and three siblings in a tidy one-room house in the Santa Luzia favela, a slum at the edge of the largest garbage dump in Latin America. The space is filled by three beds, a sofa, TV, refrigerator, two wardrobes, a cooker and a small table where they share their meals. A mosaic of mats and scraps of plywood cover the dirt floor. Davi has his own shelf where he arranges his clothes, his toy car collection, and his mobile. There’s no garbage collection and the power goes down frequently. When it rains, scattered garbage turns to sludge and oozes into homes, but Jesus keeps Davi and his family safe and happy. They go to a church nearby every Saturday night and Sunday morning. Davi’s dad is looking for work as a digger. He has his own pick, shovel and grubber. Davi’s step-mom handles the cooking. Davi will eat almost anything except bitter legumes though most days he has beans and rice, maybe with a little pork. He can cook fried eggs, porridge and pasta for himself. Sometimes there are treats, like sweet popcorn. He never goes to bed hungry. Davi laughs easily and is crazy about kites. He and his friends, Maxwell, Junior and Romário have kite fights in the favela’s empty lots where bored stray dogs scratch at fleas or sniff around for food. Davi adopted five strays and gave them names: Lassie, Beethoven, Tchutchuquinha, Belinha and Piloto. He also has a chicken and wants a horse. He wants to learn all about cars, motorcycles, helicopters and guns, too. His dad taught him to drive and now he dreams of having a Chevy. He’d like to be a cop when he grows up because it’s better to be a cop than a thief.”
“Recreating all of the kid’s meals was a challenge of course, too! Kids kept a journal of everything they ate for one week. At the end of the week, producers collected the journals, checked to make sure they were complete and then handed them off to the cooks who’d shop for all the ingredients and reproduce all of the meals,” said the photographer. “I photographed as many as 5 kids a day, so the cooks were responsible for preparing over 100 meals. These were often 14-hour days for the food-preppers. It was demanding and exhausting! Once all the food was prepped and plated, I’d arrange the dishes and other elements in the frame. Sometimes I’d have the luxury of a food stylist to collaborate with, though often it was just me doing the styling.”
#4 Ademilson Francisco Dos Santos (11) Vão De Almas, Goiás, Brazil
Image source: Gregg Segal
“Ademilson Francisco dos Santos (11) Vão de Almas, Goiás, Brazil, photographed August 19, 2018 in Brasilia. Ademilson is from Vão de Almas, a community of 300 families in the Cerrado region of Goiás. Ademilson’s home is 200 kilometers from the nearest town, a journey on mountainous, unpaved roads through valleys and across rivers – an almost impossible trip during the rainy season. There is no TV, electricity or running water. Villagers bathe, wash their clothes and clean their pots and pans in the Capivara River. Ademilson, the youngest of 7 children, goes to school in the morning (an hours walk from home) and in the afternoon, returns to help his father with farming and collecting native plants. The family cultivates a cornucopia of crops: rice, manihot (cassava), sweet potatoes, squash, beans, gherkin, okra, jiló, orange, lemon, watermelon, corn, coffee and sugar cane. They collect a bounty of native fruits, too: buriti, mangaba, mango, jatobá, pequi, caju, and coco indaiá. They produce coconut oil, mamona oil (castor oil) and sesame and peanut paçoca. They farm without the use of machinery, irrigation or pesticides and fertilize with ash from the burning of the bush. Manihot, the brown root in the upper right hand corner of the photograph, is a staple of Ademilson’s diet. His favorite treats are mangoes and paçoca (similar to peanut brittle). There are many kinds of food Ademilson doesn’t eat because they’re not part of his diet and are completely foreign. He tried a hot dog when he went to the city and hated it. He’d never eaten pizza before coming to Braslila to be photographed. In his portrait, Ademilson is holding buriti, a wild palm from the Cerrado rich in carotenoids and antioxidants which indigenous people refer to as the “tree of life” because of its many uses: its wood goes into the construction of homes and handcrafts; leaves are used to cover houses; fibers are used to make textiles and the orange pulp of the fruit is used for food. Even the seeds of the buriti fruit aren’t wasted; they’re cold pressed by natives who use the oil to protect themselves from the sun and soothe sore muscles.”
“One of the surprising lessons of Daily Bread is that the best quality diets are often eaten not by the richest but the poorest. In the US, the poor are the biggest consumers of junk food because it’s convenient and cheap. But in Mumbai, it costs $13 for a medium Dominoes pizza, which is way beyond the means of most people,” said Gregg. “Anchal lives with her family in an 8 X 8 foot aluminum hut. Her father earns less than $5 a day, yet she eats a wholesome diet of okra & cauliflower curries, lentils and roti which Anchal’s mother makes from scratch each day on a single kerosene burner. Shraman, on the other hand, lives in a middle-class Mumbai hi-rise and eats very differently. His family’s extra income means he can afford Dominoes pizza, fried chicken and treats like Snickers bars and Cadbury chocolate.”
#5 Beryl Oh Jynn, 8, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia
Image source: Gregg Segal
“Beryl Oh Jynn, 8, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, photographed March 25, 2017. Beryl lives in a quiet condominium with her parents and two brothers. She goes to S. J. K. Han Ming Puchong, a national Chinese school walking distance from home. Beryl’s dad is an engineer and her mother runs a day care. Beryl’s earliest memory of food is porridge and cake. Her favorite dish is spaghetti with carbonara sauce. Beryl grows bok choy and spinach in her balcony garden, is not permitted to drink sodas and refuses to eat ginger. She would like to be a cheerleader.”
“In 2015, Cambridge University conducted an exhaustive study ranking diets around the world from most to least nutritional. Remarkably, 9 of the 10 healthiest countries are in Africa. It seems counterintuitive that some of the poorest countries have among the healthiest diets. But when you look closely at what they’re eating, it makes sense: fresh vegetables, fruits, nuts, seeds, grains, fish, and legumes and very little meat (which functions more as seasoning) and few empty calories (processed foods).”
#6 Meissa Ndiaye, 11, Dakar, Senegal
Image source: Gregg Segal
“Meissa Ndiaye, 11, Dakar, Senegal, photographed August 30, 2017. Meissa shares a single room with his dad, mum and brother in the heart of Parcelles Assainies, which means “sanitized plots.” A treeless, sandy suburb of Dakar, Parcelles Assainies was developed in the 1970’s to house the poor overflowing from the city. Meissa lives opposite the futbol stadium and open-air market, hundreds of stalls selling everything from fresh fish to wedding dresses. In late August, tethered goats line the streets before Eid al-Adha, the Feast of the Sacrifice. Meissa, a devout Muslim and student at Quran School, loves goat meat and sweet foods like porridge, though in the week he kept a diary of his meals, he ate very little meat. More often, he filled up on French bread stuffed with spaghetti, peas or fried potatoes. Meissa’s mum and anties prepare his meals though once or twice a week they get take out. Meissa loves futbol most of all and hopes to be a star player like Messi or Ronaldo. If he had enough money, he’d buy a nice little sports car. He wishes his mum and dad, a refrigerator technician, could immigrate to France so that they can earn enough money.”
“The revolution in diet and sameness of what kids around the world are eating. Ultraprocessed packaged foods, empty calories. The children I met have distinct personalities and diverse hobbies, yet they’re often eating in eerily similar ways,” said Gregg. “Compare the diets of Paulo from Sicily and Isaiah from Los Angeles. In the past, a Sicilian boy would have grown up eating very different foods from his counterpart in the US, but now their diets are converging. Both Paulo and Isaiah eat French fries, burgers, pizza, pasta and white bread. They live continents apart, but it’s as if the boys’ parents have been shopping at the same global superstore!”

“Sira Cissokho (11 yrs old) Dakar, photographed August 30, 2017. Sira, one of nine children, is from Tambacounda, about 7 hours north of Dakar. Sira’s father is a musician and her mother is a housewife. Sira doesn’t always get enough to eat. On special occasions, Sira’s mom makes her favorite dish, chicken. Many of the foods Sira and her family eat are grown in their garden, including millet and peanuts. Sira has learned to cook Ngalakh, a Senegalese millet porridge. If she had enough money, Sira would buy her parents a trip to Mecca. Of all her possessions, the thing Sira cherishes most is a bracelet her grandfather passed down to her before he died.”

“Rosalie Durand, 10, Nice, France, photographed August 18, 2017. Since her parents split up, Rosalie has lived part time with her mom, and part time with her dad, which allows her to see both the Mediterranean Sea and the French Alps from home. She has a healthy diet (which includes lots of fresh fish, like sardines) thanks in part to her father, a restaurateur, who has taught her to make crepes, salads and lentils with sausage, her favorite dish. The only foods she won’t eat are ratatouille, spinach and cucumber. Rosalie gets her sense of style from her mother, a fashion designer, and plans to be an interior designer. Rosalie is into Thai kickboxing, rock climbing, gymnastics and performs magic tricks. She’s a fan of actors Cole Sprouse and Emma Watson and in her free time goes to the cinema. She notices she’s getting older because she has a phone. There’s nothing missing in Rosalie’s life, though she’d like to go to Los Angeles and explore Hollywood Boulevard. If she had enough money, she’d buy a sailboat or maybe even a yacht.”

“Hank Segal, 8, Altadena, CA, photographed January 30, 2016. Hank lives with his mom, a voice teacher, his father, a photographer and their dog, Django near the foothills of the San Gabriel Mountains northeast of Los Angeles. Hank and his parents have grown sun gold cherry tomatoes, artichokes, zucchini, spinach, pomegranates, yams, snap peas, watercress, rosemary, thyme, basil, Serrano chili peppers, boysenberries, kyoho grapes, raspberries, rhubarb, and watermelon. Hank has an adventurous palette. While eating a fried Branzino at a Lebanese restaurant, he announced, “I’m gonna’ get all Anthony Bourdain on it!” and popped the fish’s crispy eyeball in his mouth. Usually, Hank and his parents talk politics over dinner or succumb to TV. Hank likes his back scratched and figures he must be part dog because his sense of smell is so keen. He especially likes the aroma of melted butter and garlic. He also likes 80’s music because “they really knew how to use the synth.” Hank’s heroes are Albert Einstein, Teddy Roosevelt and Abe Lincoln because he fixed slavery and has a sweet beard. Hank wants to be a mechanical engineer at NASA when he grows up.”
#10 June Grosser, 8, Hamburg, Germany

“June Grosser, 8, Hamburg, Germany, photographed August 11, 2017. June’s mom is a fashion photographer, though she hasn’t yet photographed her daughter. June must have observed her mother at work or she’s just a natural model, completely assured in front of the camera. June can sing almost all the songs she hears on the radio – and dance to them. She has no role model. She intends to be her own role model. She’d like a dog, but her parents won’t allow her. She figures if she can make enough money, she may be able to bribe her mother to get one. June’s favorite food is schnitzel. She doesn’t care for curry and truffles and didn’t like broccoli either until now. She is full after meals but hunger returns quickly. At dinner, June doesn’t talk much, but rather listens to her parents discuss politics, elections, and what’s going on in the world. The things she likes most about herself is her hair, her long eyelashes and her imagination, her fantasies. One of her wishes is to fly to the moon, though she’d rather focus on wishes that will be fulfilled. June is reading The Vampire Diaries and as she’s lying in bed at night trying to fall asleep, she often wonders if vampires really exist.”

“Greta Moeller, Hamburg, Germany, 7, photographed August 11, 2017 Greta lives with her mother and younger sister in Hamburg, but spends quite a bit of time with her grandparents, too. On the path to her grandparents home is a great big chestnut tree and in autumn, Greta searches in the foliage for chestnuts with her little sister. Greta’s favorite food is fish sticks with mashed potatoes and applesauce. She can’t stand rice pudding. One thing Greta is really good at is snapping her fingers, both hands at the same time. At night, while falling asleep, Greta thinks mostly about her mother, who is usually in the next room watching TV.”

“Andrea Testa, 9, Catania, Italy, photographed August 23, 2017 Andrea lives in a single house surrounded by a little garden and lava stones with his parents and 6 year old sister Vittoria. Andrea’s father is an officer in the Italian army and his mother is a housewife who does all the cooking. Andrea’s favorite dish is pasta carbonara with plenty of bacon. He loves the scent of orange blossoms and cherries. He won’t touch cauliflower. If he had enough money, Andrea would buy a drone and a little dog, which he would name “Ettore” (Hector). Andrea performs magic tricks for his family and friends. His hero is Robinson Crusoe. Andrea would like to be a doctor because they make a lot of money.”

“Leona “Nona” Del Grosso Sands, 6, Glendale, CA, photographed January 30, 2016. Nona lives with her mother and Cleo, her beloved cat, in an apartment in Glendale, CA. She can make oatmeal and pancakes and once when her mother was very sick, she fed her. Nona grew a gigantic tomato plant that began to take over everything and is now as big as a tree. Her mother makes her eat vegetables, especially broccoli. Her diet has as many colors as the rainbow, though Nona also has not just a sweet tooth, but many “sugar teeth.” Nona’s role models are her mother, her teachers and Joan Jett. When she goes to sleep at night, Nona sometimes imagines her Nana is an angel watching over her.”

“Adveeta Venkatesh, 10 years old, Mumbai, India, photographed March 11, 2017. Adveeta, an only child, lives with her maternal granny, who prepares most of her meals, and her parents in a spacious flat with a balcony overlooking Deonar, a suburb of Mumbai. The air is often hazy from fires burning at Deonar dumping ground, India’s oldest and largest landfill, an 18-story, 12 million ton mountain of trash. Adveeta’s mother and father are scientists at a government research center in Mumbai. They make it home in time for dinner. While at the table, no one uses gadgets or watches TV. Before eating, Adveeta says a prayer of gratitude for the food on her plate. A vegetarian, she loves South Indian cuisine, particularly dosas (pancakes made from fermented rice and lentils) served with spicy chutney and yogurt. A few years ago, Adveeta was a picky eater. She didn’t eat 99% of the food she eats now. But as her father discovered during the photo shoot, she’s also eating more snacks and sweets. “I can’t believe Adveeta is eating all that junk!” he commented, as the pictures popped up on my monitor. “I’m going to have to have a talk with her mother!” Adveeta studies drama, performs classical Indian dance and prefers to solve puzzles and riddles than to play with Barbie dolls. She’s only cried once in the last year. While traveling in Jakarta and Bali, she contracted chicken pox and was kept isolated from her cousins. Adveeta plans to be a veterinarian and to contribute extra money to orphanages and animal shelters.”

Mum does all the cooking and sets the rules for the table: recite the Du’a, no water before meals and no chatting during meals though it’s very seldom that the whole family sits down to dinner together because everyone’s so busy. Siti’s favorite dish is spaghetti carbonara and she’s crazy about the scent of fried instant noodles. She goes to a Chinese school where she learns Mandarin, plays the Melodian and practices Taekwando. When she falls asleep at night, Siti wishes her dad would put some money under her pillow. She collects coins of all kinds and foreign currencies. Once she saves enough money, Siti’s going to buy an IPad.”

She married an Emerati man and they had one son before separating. Yusuf loves his mum’s cooking though he makes scrambled eggs and toast all on his own. Yusuf likes to read, draw, climb, ride horses and create science projects. He thinks he’ll either be a pilot or police officer when he grows up. If he had the money, he’d buy a Ferrari. His role models are Batman and his mother. Yusuf wishes for his mum to get married again and that he’ll have brothers and sisters. Lying in bed at night, he thinks back to building a birdhouse with his granddad, fishing with him in the rivers in Ireland and going to Warner Brothers with his grandmom.”

“Frank Fadel Agbomenou, 8, Dakar, Senegal, photographed August 30, 2017. Frank lives with his older brother and father, a Human Resources Manager in an apartment in a posh neighborhood of Dakar. Frank would like to see his dad and mum together again but he doesn’t think that wish will be fulfilled. Frank cried a couple weeks ago; his mum told him she would take him to the beach but then changed her mind. She’s busy, working as a caterer for parties and fancy hotel events. There is almost nothing Frank doesn’t like to eat. He eats lots of peanuts from the peanut tree on his terrace. He’s especially fond of fish and the family cook knows how to prepare it just right. Frank is an excellent dancer and has mastered summersaults though he prefers watching TV and playing games on his Play Station. The thing that makes him laugh the hardest is when his cousin Coco falls down. Frank dreams of buying a flashy sports car and traveling to Paris. When he grows up, he wants to be a gynecologist.”

“Tharkish Sri Ganesh (10) and Mierra Sri Varrsha, (8) Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, photographed March 26, 2017. Tharkish and Mierra’s roots in Malaysia begin with their great-grandfather who migrated from South India to build a better future, but only found work as a rubber tapper before being conscripted by the Japanese to build the “Death Railway” from Siam to Burma in 1943. Tharkish and Mierra live with their mom and dad in a public housing project in Bukit Jalil, a suburb of Kuala Lumpur. Their apartment block is full of friends and noisy in a good way. Their dad works as a gaffer in film production and their mom is a homemaker and does most of the cooking though on weekends they eat KFC, Pizza Hut or Chinese takeout. Mierra dislikes the pungent smell of meat and traces of blood. She prefers candies and chocolates. Her earliest memory of food is rice porridge, her comfort food whenever she falls sick. Tharkish’s favorite food is Puttu, steamed ground rice layered with coconut and topped with bananas and palm sugar. Tharkish doesn’t like onions because they taste weird and leave a funny smell in his mouth. His first taste was Urad Dal Porridge, an Indian baby food made with dal, rice, coconut, cardamon and jaggery (concentrated date palm sap). Mierra says her diet is healthy because her mom avoids foods with preservatives, additives and msg, though after her Daily Bread portrait, she still thinks she could eat less processed food. Mierra loves to read and play badminton and snakes and ladders while her brother is into chess, carom and surfing the internet. Mierra strives to be the top student in her class and wants to be a doctor while Tharkish will be happy with a top 3 finish after examinations and pictures himself an IT engineer.”

“Cooper Norman, 12 (10 at time of shoot), Altadena, CA, USA. Photographed January 30, 2016. Cooper lives in the foothills of Altadena, California with his mom, a school administrator and dad, a human resources manager. Other than the cries of wild parrots and peacocks, his neighborhood is quiet, peaceful, and untraveled. At 4, Cooper began taking karate classes and at 5, he took up classical guitar. He got into bow ties, too, which he wears for his guitar recitals. Cooper last wore this suit to a wedding in Palm Springs. The bride’s uncle was so impressed with Cooper’s table manners that he invited him out for dim sum. At Odyssey Charter School, Cooper plants all sorts of fruits and vegetables. He thinks of himself as an adventurous eater, willing to try almost anything, though Thai food (his mother’s home country) is his favorite. His earliest memory of food is eating Cheerios in his stroller. Cooper plans to be a neurosurgeon when he grows up and, if he has enough money, will buy a teleporter, so he can visit his family in Thailand more often.”

“John Hintze, 7, Hamburg, Germany, photographed August 11, 2017. John lives with his parents in a large apartment with a garden in a quiet suburb of Hamburg with more trees than cars. John describes himself as an omnivore. He’s fond of eating breakfast in bed. His parents bring him a tray of Musli and toast every morning before school. John loves his grandma’s roast, Chinese curry with cashew nuts and Orange Fanta, though he’s only allowed to drink Fanta on weekends. During the week there is only water. He used to like mushrooms, but not anymore. Once, with his friend Henry, he made a fruit plate with a sushi knife. “I have not yet harvested something to eat, but I could do that. First we’d have to plant something.” John collects minerals like purple azurite, is learning Thai kickboxing, sailing and is an accomplished swimmer. He would like to be an underwater archeologist. His dad has already found and brought back great things from the sea. Once, when he and his dad were snorkeling, a curious octopus approached them – which was both scary and fantastic. When he falls asleep at night, John paints a mental picture of what will happen tomorrow. He hopes his parents will never die.”

“Isaiah Dedrick, Long Beach, CA, (16 at time of photo) photographed March 20, 2016. Isaiah was raised by his mother and grandmother, who does most of the cooking at home. One day, Isaiah would like to have enough space to grow his own garden. Isaiah’s favorite food is orange chicken and fried rice and he loves the smell of apples sautéed with cinnamon. His mom doesn’t permit him to drink soda and after this photo shoot, Isaiah decided to eliminate snacks from his diet. Isaiah’s wish is that no one will go hungry in the world. He plays the drums and the flute and is studying acting. He’d like to be as funny as Eddie Murphy or Tyler Perry and be able to fly like Superman.”

Alex and Jessica live in the foothills of Altadena with their daddy and papa who are engineers at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, a NASA field center in La Canada, California. Their yard is filled with food: blackberry bushes, grape vines, and fruit trees – fig, peach, pomegranate, guava, mulberry, jujubes, and banana. They have chickens, too, and eat their eggs almost every day. Jessica loves sweets and pizza with ham and is repelled by beans, peppers, sushi, and chocolate. She’s good at drawing and daydreaming and on weekends the whole family roller-skates at Moonlight Rollerway. Jessica is the richest person on her street besides their neighbor Mary Anne. When she grows up, she wants to be an author and university professor. Alex makes Hot Pockets, pizza rolls, and quesadillas herself, but her favorite dish is macaroni and cheese. She refuses to eat Brussels sprouts or soggy leftover broccoli. She collects rocks and shells and is saving up for an xbox 360 and Nintendo Switch. Alex makes people laugh without even trying because she’s a spaz, she says. Her long-range goal is to get a PhD and have an outstanding career. After the photo shoot, Alex and Jessica took much of the leftover food home to feed their chickens.”

Henrico lives in a posh suburb of Brasilia with his mom, a film producer and advertising executive, and his two siblings. Henrico’s mom, grandma and maid do the day to day cooking, though Henrico likes to invent his own snacks.

Henrico likes dessert, too: chocolate soufflé; Toblerone and Talento bars; anything with Nutella, “brigadeiro,” a ball of baked condensed milk and chocolate; buttered toast sprinkled with Nescau powder, a treat his uncle invented; and one of his own creations – steak covered with sliced banana. Henrico has mastered video games like Little Big Planet, Lego Marvel and Escape 3. He listens to Justin Bieber, Maroon 5 and Gato Galatico, watches Iron Fist and The Flash on Netflix and is a Star Wars fan.

“Paolo Mendolaro, 9, Belpaso, Sicily, photographed August 23, 2017. Paolo and his family of four live in an apartment in Belpasso, a tiny medieval village on the east coast of Sicily founded in 1305. When he steps outside his apartment, Paolo sees the center square and Mother Church of Belpasso with its lava stone staircase and bell tower. Paolo’s mom works full time for a cosmetics company, but makes time to prepare homemade meals for her family like Sicilian Cannolo and Pasta alla Norma. Once a week, they buy a roast chicken or go out for pizza, which Paolo loves most of all. Paolo has learned to make his own pizza and pasta as well as biscuits and big donuts. His grandfather had an overflowing garden and Paolo helped harvest eggplants, zucchini, bell peppers, olives, strawberries, peaches, tomatoes, peas and fava beans. During the week that Paolo kept his journal for Daily Bread, he’d been going to the beach with his family and didn’t follow as healthy a diet as usual; they often ate fast food. Paolo keeps his parents in his prayers. For his mother, he wishes for a dryer machine and a new truck for his father, a carpenter. If he had enough money, Paolo would buy a Play Station 4, a giant Lego set and, at minimum, a one-week holiday for the whole family.”

She won’t eat fruits and vegetables of any kind, even as a toddler, not even mashed bananas or apple sauce.
