Hungry Planet with Faith D'Aluisio and Peter Menzel
Photographer Peter Menzel and writer Faith D'Aluisio traveled the world, inviting themselves to dine with 30 families in 24 countries, from Darfur to Cuba to Poland. But before dinner, they shop together. In so doing, they discover how what we eat both reflects and affects who we are. Photo portraits of each family show them surrounded by a week's worth of groceries. And there are recipes, too! Barbara Meade, an owner of Politics and Prose in Washington, D.C., likens it to the classic The Family of Man by photographer Edward Steichen and poet Carl Sandburg.
