A “Super” Celebration

In the United States, Super Bowl Sunday is a holiday.  Sure it is not an official holiday, but it might as well be one.  The Super Bowl is the second biggest food holiday after Thanksgiving.  In a single weekend, Americans consume 1.38 billion chicken wings, 88 million pounds of cheese, 63.5 million pounds of pepperoni,…

Global Eats: Hungary

For the second meal for my Global Eats project, I traveled to the Central European country of Hungary.  I brought the other two members of the Hungry Trio along with me.
