We could go on for hours about food – everything from the picture-perfect breakfasts in Japan to pig’s ear cartilage kebabs in China to succulent ikan rica-rica (fish dish) in Bali and more.  Here is a tiny selection, in the interests of time.

For laptops and desktops: hover over an image in the gallery (carousel) to get its description. Click on an image to get a full-screen image.  Click on the big X at upper right to dismiss this and return to the gallery.

Hovering does not work on touchscreen devices such as smart phones; I may try to add CSS to handle the lack of hover on such devices.  In lieu of that here is an expandable list.  Image 1 is an old, color-imbalanced low-light shot in Japan, with David suckling while Lou Ellen eats.  Images run to the right from there.
