Food is everything we are.
It’s an extension of nationalist feeling, ethnic feeling, your personal history, your province, your region, your tribe, your grandma. It’s inseparable from those from the get-go.
– Anthony Bourdain
Cooking is all about people. Food is maybe the only universal thing that really has the power to bring everyone together. No matter what culture, everywhere around the world,
people get together to eat.
– Guy Fieri
Food is not rational.
Food is culture, habit, craving and identity.
Jonathan Safran Foer
Food is our common ground, a universal experience.
– James Beard
You don’t need a silver fork to eat good food.
If you really want to make a friend, go to someone’s house and eat with him… the people who give you their food
give you their heart.
– Cesar Chavez

We are what we eat. Hope we can all share a healthy dose of food and friendship – world wide.
Fantastic and brilliant as ever!
I admired Photography by looking at your work when I was young. It took me some time to understand your work. Now I can’t get enough. Just ordered 2 of your books as a gift to myself for the upcoming festive season.
Much love from the country where you love photographing.
The images are amazing 😍
Steve McCurry you are an enlightened man. Amazing every shot a revelation.
Thank you again Steve bhai for these most wonderful images from all around the world.
Amazing & wonderful images and quotes. How on earth do you get into places like the kitchen in Germany? You always touch my heart with the people you capture.
amazing as always – fantastic beautiful world-
Steve, I’m sharing your blog with my students. They are middle schoolers, but the visual texts you invite them into teach so much they need. (I hope that’s okay with you!)
It would be a privilege. My sister taught Middle School English for 35 years, and I have
ultimate respect for what you do.
Sou do Brasil e amo o seu trabalho Steve! A comida brasileira também é riquíssima em sabor e harmonia entre as pessoas.
God, I am passionately in love with your work
Wonderful pics! Thanks for sharing, Steve. 🙂
Yes. You are what you eat. And for me, food is the root of my Jamaican culture and the route to go back home every time I get nostalgic.
The photo of mom peeling potatoes in Beirut is burned into my mind. Once again, thank you.
You have done it again, Steve! My favorite of this post was Petra and my home town, Beirut. So authentic….keep them coming.
What a delicious aray of foods. Then I reached the last image, wow. I have sat in a Bedouin tent drinking tea & eating cakes in the Whadi Rum – took me right back. Such hospitality. Lovelly pictures!
Always so beautiful. And I never fail to learn a little something from your photos and words. Only the best to you. Stay healthy and stay safe.
Thank you so very much.
