Meat and Potatoes vs Sweet and Savory
pizza. It was revolutionary and many decided that they were never going down that path. And so they didn't.
As for dessert, the idea of adding a small wedge of cheese to the top of apple pie seems almost evil...I mean who did that?
In our lives we were very narrow too. Cultures did not mix and food from another's world seemed strange and not so good.
As I look back on that world compared to the one I live in now I am amazed at how the foods we ate then and the foods we eat now reflect where we have been, who we know and what we think.
I have come to love sweet and salty or sour together the same way I love living in a world that includes so much more. Isn't it wonderful?
Do you see the connection?
Pictures are of meals we have eaten at home or with family in their homes. I did not ever have anything like these meals when I was growing up.

My dad was a pork chop and potatoes guy, sometimes corn or maybe green beens but that was it. I, thank heavens grew out of that mode pretty quickly. My first birthday party at the age of five was in a Chinese restaurant (by my choice). To this day I love Chinese, hot & sour soup and bok choy are two favorites. Mexican is not far behind.ReplyDelete
I think part of it is that as we get older we lose some of our taste buds so need things spicier in order for them to taste the same.
We have added Thai, Lebanese and Sushi to name a few. Isn't it fun to celebrate our diversity while filling our stomachs? I think so.Delete
As a child of the 50's, I remember my first taste of pizza. My parents (died in 1965 and 1986) would have been amazed at the modern supermarket - and probably would not have known the first thing to do with much of today's food. We take so much for granted today.ReplyDelete
My mother loved the new foods and followed our lead whenever possible. We have done the same with our children. They lead us to new adventures in eating. We are very lucky.Delete
