What are YOU eating this Earth Day?
Roz Cummons over at Grist experienced an evening with Earth Dinner Cards...and the third question they drew must have been a fun one to work with!
The EARTH DINNER cards are designed to spark stories and memories of the foods and people we love, and perhaps to inspire new thinking about the foods we choose everyday.
Each card is designed so that everyone in the group can participate. Incorporate the cards into the whole evening. Above all, try to make sure each person has an opportunity to both share and listen to each other's stories. If you don't get through all of the cards, save them for your next celebration, or use them weekly at your dinner table! There are no wrong answers. Everyone wins this game!
A third card quizzed us on the correct price for Kopi Luwak, the world's most expensive coffee. I aced this one. (One of the occupational hazards of being a food writer is that one's gray matter is completely used up by useless food knowledge.) I was surprised that the card didn't explain why the coffee is so expensive, but then I remembered the process behind this rare commodity. Let's just say it's not a topic for the dinner table.Sounds like a recipe for a wonderful, human evening.
