Globalista: Eating from Leaves

Source: via Nola on Pinterest

These plates remind me of our extended family’s traditional reunion in the  barrio, the countryside. There would be about 20 or more families coming together to celebrate a great-great- grandfather’s birthday. The best part about it was lunch out in the open. Steamed rice, green mango salad, grilled fish, roasted pig all laid out on a long bamboo table covered with banana leaves. No plates, no utensils.

Eating with hands from banana leaves is a gastronomical experience in itself. Try it sometime!  (It’s more fun. Promise.)
