A taste of
something different

An open mind,
an open palate
By Philip Dimaano

he culture of
every country has
its own set of
unique traditions and cus-
toms with the native food
being one of the best ways
to experience it all. There
are times when the ingredients might
seem too foreign to the uninitiated, but a
willingness to try new things is critical in
experiencing cultures in ways that would
be impossible otherwise.
It is understandable for people to be
hesitant or unwilling to try or experience
things unfamiliar to them. Only through a
little bit of risk-taking can a person realize
the positives that coincide with keeping an
open mind.
As with all risks, there is always the possibility that the
experience may turn out to be less than memorable. The
important thing to remember is to not let such an event act as
deterrence toward trying other new foods in the future. With
the forgettable meals also come the memorable ones that
serve as the epitome of the cultural experience.
I kept this in mind during my adventures in Italy as my
family and I explored the cities of Rome and Florence several
summers ago. My adventures visiting the Pantheon, Vatican
City, the Spanish Steps and the Coliseum were certainly
unforgettable, but in the beginning I still felt as if there was
more that I could do to experience the melting pot of cultures
that swirled around me.
Acting upon this, my father and I decided to explore the
