Sitting with an ancient Navajo community around a fire with a woven, southwest-woolen blend of colors draping your back and a sunset below red-dyed cliffs across the desert, a traditional mescal goat meat recipe with a plethora of posole and ground chile spices cooked into the dish sits on your lap; or, across the Pacific sitting in a Japanese fusuma styled house and under the shadow of Mount Fuji, you delicately pick a freshly cured piece of sushi with shichimi togaras and gomasio spices enhancing each bite; once more, eating at a street corner restaurant adjacent to the Blue Mosque in Istanbul, Turkey, with vendors adorning each open square foot and foot traffic bustling past your Turkish delight, you sit and stare at your yaprak sarma pinched with urfa pepper and za’atar, a brazened dish, but the delicacy of each spice is in communion with your voyage for new and exotic flavor.
