Meet Me at the Bamboo Table
In our ever-more-globalized world, how better to connect than with food, and who better to connect us than a chowhound communications professor? Crofts concocts a multimedia feast of photos, “sketchnotes,” and vignettes, inviting us to everything from Thanksgiving in Germany to a Lunar New Year dumpling party in Seattle. The result is a beautiful meditation on how food nourishes community.
A.V. Crofts is a senior lecturer in the Department of Communications and a clinical instructor in the Department of Global Health at the University of Washington. Her work has been published in Gastronomica and Saveur.
