Issue #54

Colors 54 looks at the cruelest, funniest and strangest meals eaten around the world. Besides questions of taste and culture, we also found that food can be a major political issue (did you know that a spat between the president’s daughter and her husband led to a dearth of Coca-Cola in Uzbekistan?). Food can be big business or a weapon; a status symbol or a lifestyle. This issue takes a look at the politics, rituals and time spent eating, drinking and preparing food all over the globe.
