Food for Thought

On the way to our friend’s birthday party in Philadelphia, we came across a fundraising event for a Russian Orthodox Church. They had several different kinds of pierogis, kielbasa, stuffed cabbage, borscht, and a wide selection of baked goods.

Foods at fundraising events are hit or miss. Some events are just terrible—nobody puts any love or effort into making anything—while others, like this one, are inspired. As with any socio-cultural groups, the people who originally started the groups tend to set the future trajectories because we humans adjust our behavior by observing what others do/did in any given group. Like how Apple will continue to have a culture of design even after Steve Jobs, I would imagine that this event at this church was started by people who were proud of their food and cooking
