Launching Breakfast Around the World

To travel is to learn, so in the spirit of sharing my discoveries, I’m launching a small, ongoing project called Breakfast Around the World.

Cuisine culture provides fascinating insight into the priorities of a people. Food can indicate climate, economic status, and religious affiliation. Breakfast is one of the lesser observed cultural rituals, and thus I find it that much more fascinating.

Without necessarily listing the many breakfast items consumed throughout a country, I choose to document the most prevalent, most interesting, or maybe just personal favorites.

In honor of both Ghana and Pencils of Promise, my first entry documents a common breakfast item for kindergarten and primary students: Ovaltine.
