The geography of food encompasses many aspects of economic and environmental geography, but food is also very much about culture. As a nation of immigrants that also encompasses many kinds of climate, soil, and topography, the variety of food cultures in the United States is tremendous. Parade magazine celebrates this diversity in a recent cover story on food festivals taking place throughout the summer and into the autumn, and has invited readers to post additional festivals on its web site.
