Photos Of People With Their Country’s Traditional Food

Peter Menzel, a talented photographer from America, has traveled around the world and captured photos of people with their traditional cuisine. The photos are depicting everyday people of each country with a number of plates in front of them featuring the well known and traditional or typical dishes of their country.

Besides being an incredible multicultural dive through the world, the series of photos really puts the peoples’ way of life into perspective along with what their everyday diet entails.

Truly a beautiful project by Peter that we are very happy to feature today. All credit for the following photos go to the original photographer. Let us know which are your favourites fellow lazy penguins.
