In the past ten years, Syracuse, New York has welcomed nearly 10,000 refugees from 52 countries across southeast Asia, the Middle East, and Africa. And while the city had a dramatic 72% drop in President Trump's first year, the culinary presence of these cultures remains strong. The vibrant refugee community offers residents traditional recipes from Iranian koobideh kabobs to Vietnamese blood sausage. 📝&📷: @maheimerman

Ever heard of Smørrebrød? These pretty open-face Danish sandwiches are perfect for Spring picnic-ing. The beloved national dish starts with rugbrød—dense and sour Danish rye—and piled with pickles and proteins. 🍽: @stacy_adimando@katcontrol 📷: @pissinginthepunchbowl
🎼I can’t feel my face when I’m with you 🎼 A friend of senior editor @chris__cohen returned from Chengdu, the capital of China’s Sichuan province, with an unmarked jar of the highest-quality Sichuan pepper she could find. It’s the real deal, with a bright, citrusy aroma and a startlingly potent tingly numbing effect. Toasted and ground, it will add its magic to regional classics like mapo tofu. #eattheworld
