Which food has that distinct aroma – as soon as you smell it you smile, close your eyes and dream for a moment.  It’s so evocative of home that it takes you there immediately, even just for a few seconds.

Recently Feet in 2 Worlds brought together journalists, students and culinary professionals for an intensive three-day food journalism workshop. Participants went out to meet some of the cooks and chefs that make New York’s food culture so diverse and treasured by those searching for a taste of home.

Through the story-telling website Cowbird, Fi2W sprouted the seed called ‘Home Tastes Like…’ a collection of stories about our food, family and culture. Click here to hear all the stories on Cowbird.
