Worldbuilding Wednesday - Worldwide Eats and Drinks

As this year comes to a close and folks all over the world are feasting and drinking, as they might each to his own culture, I thought a worldbuilding blog post about worldwide eats and drinks might be interesting.  I've had a little look around and, avoiding the Disney Epcot links, picked out a few I thought might be informative.  Useful to the game prepper?  I think so, insofar as a GM has to have some idea of what folks might be eating not only where the PCs are but also to help distinguish traveling NPC that might turn up.  As well as to add some depth to the cargoes of trade ships.

In any event, the first link to check out is from the website and is on the rather broad topic of "History of Alcohol and Drinking around the World," an article by David J. Hanson, Ph.D.  Learn what you can here.

The second link, from the New York Times website, is to an article titled "Rise and Shine: What kids around the world eat for breakfast."  Read more here.

Finally, from the National Geographic website comes an interactive infographic that will have you tooling around it for hours.  Check out "What the World Eats" here.

So have a safe and Happy New Year!
