In the 9th century, Italy was at the center of a world where Venetian traders dominated the seas to bring salt, grain, spices and vegetables from Egypt, Asia and the Far East to Europe. The quest for new foods and spices drove explorers and influenced foodways across cultures and millennia. Today's culinary cross pollination continues on our palates through the creative ideas of these talented chefs, in the Houston fields of Recipe for Success Foundation Group's Hope Farms HTX and half way around the world, in Brunello Cucinelli's #ProjectforBeauty in Umbria.
