“Food is the linchpin of society, and it embodies the rich history and culture of a people.
“It not only creates a connection amongst individuals in ways other elements of culture cannot, but it supersedes its role and stands to define culture itself sometimes.

“Stop taking food, especially local delicacies, for granted and appreciate the stories it tells of traditional and culturally rich people,” it added. (NAN)
