Yesterday's food
An email exchange with students of Chaitanya School in Hyderabad, Andhra Pradesh, India, in which we investigate diet and food preferences.

The exchanges will be in English, and we started by asking Senior Citizens who subscribe to our project to 'twin' with a student or group of students, and to introduce themselves and to list the dishes they ate on the previous day.

In India we eat mostly with our fingers, and the vast proportion of people eat only vegetables and lentils, rice, idli, and roti or chappatis.

Many also eat meat but there are religious and local issues around what is or is not acceptable. Europeans like eating pig, Indians are partial to goat. Join our project to learn more from the students, and tell us about your own diet and style of eating.

You will need to register first and will then be given an email address to write to to introduce yourself (briefly) to your group, starting on the 1st of February 2006. We expect the exchanges to take place during the month of February.

This project has now finished.
