A week of groceries from around the world

Thank you to Roger for sending this great photo essay that shows a week's worth of groceries from around the world. Photographs by Peter Menzel from the book "Hungry Planet"

I love to travel, and I think that they best way to get to know a new place is by a trip on a bicycle (or a long walk) and through by tasting the local fare! I make it a point to get off the beaten track and to ask taxi drivers for recommendations of where the locals eat.

This photo album shows interesting details about their countries - from the scarcity of food in Chad, to the priority of the doggie treats in Britian to the inclusion of beer in Germany. Australia focused on meat while India focused on veggies. Some countries had minimal variety while others showed a rainbow bounty.

Reader poll: What surprised you about this slide show?
