The phenomenon of foreign cuisines relocating can be traced along the paths of migration — when the Portuguese came to Massachusetts to work on whale ships, they brought along their recipe for fish stew, and when the British Empire welcomed the people of India from the British colonies, curry houses sprouted up along the streets of London. What once was simply the food of an outsider community, however, is now an inseparable part of the cultural identity of these places.
So what does all this mean for the hungry traveler? For one, it expands the culinary possibilities in cities large and small. Excellent, authentic international cuisine can be found not only in major metropolises, but also in places where tourists less frequently go.

Next week, our new brilliant brilliant brilliant Chinese teacher – who at 16 entered China’s Fudan University think Yale or Princeton in terms of prestige – is taking the class, me included, on a trek through the Chinese wilderness. Along the way, he has told me that we will be able to record traditional Chinese music in remote villages. In this video he is showing us some pictures of his trek and plotting our course. This is going to be really exciting and of course I will be taking more videos. Nonetheless, I hope I don’t get eaten by the Monkey King!
Thank you to everyone for your good vibrations! I can feel them!
