Viewing food as a cultural tool is a centuries-old idea. Each country, region, and city have their special, local dishes based on ingredients found in the area. Often these recipes are passed down through generations, and reflect local style preferences. If someone came to spend a weekend in Eugene for the first time, where would you take them to eat?
