What different parts of the world eats in one week.

Faith D’Aluisio and Peter Menzel have a newish book out which is just wonderful from a food perspective. Essentially, they’ve traveled the world to meet “average” families and report on their dietary habits. Apart from being thematically intriguing from a journalistic point of view, it’s also quite awesome from a visual perspective. Basically, Peter has taken photos of the families with their weekly food totals.

This one is a representative from the US, and here are some others (below the fold). A whole ton of other pictures can be found here.


Here’s a family from Mali.
