Be it discovering a new dish or retasting an old one, it is the stories about food that establish our connection to it. When we hear an anecdote about a particular dish or its ingredients, it makes the whole experience of eating even more memorable. Take our festivals for instance, the food prepared is in sync with seasons and it influences what and how people eat during these festivals. Understanding where we come from, where our food comes from, food practices, ingredients goes a long way in appreciating what we have. It forms a bond that naturally makes us protective of that legacy.
