Food Friday- Video: The Secret To Everything Tasting Better

Food and culture are often discussed topics on The R, so we wanted to share  this video from NPR about food, tradition, and secrecy.  In this segment of their Micropolis series, reporter Arun Venugopal discusses why he’s never eaten with his hands in public, despite always doing so at home.  If the amount of Indian restaurants around the city are anything to judge by, Indian food has been embraced (or co-opted) by New Yorkers. So why haven’t all aspects been accepted as readily?

    As someone of South Asian background, this was certainly relateable! It became quite a habit instinctively knowing when and where to eat or not eat with our hands while outside. It also depended on who we could feel comfortable eating in front of with our hands.
