Taste of the World and the delectable stories behind it! is an illustrated book that follows two friends as they visit several iconic countries around the world, tasting the cuisine of each one and sharing insights into the culture behind the food.

About the Author

Club, Bridge To Harmony: - Bridge to Harmony is a nonprofit 501(c3) organization formed by high school student volunteers in the California Bay Area. Our Bridge to Harmony club was founded in the spring of 2021 in response to the COVID-19 related issues and social conflicts. We witnessed a division within the community based on ideology, religion or race, and that was our call to action. Our club takes initiative to promote cultural understanding to build a more harmonic community, or building the "bridge to harmony." Multimedia publishing, multicultural events, and community service are 3 projects our club is currently working on. One of our main projects is book publishing. Taste of the World is our first book and we are creating a series of similar titles which will include sports, music, fashion and other interests from different regions. Contributors to this book: Kaitlyn Wang, Cathy Gao, Selina Wang, Kevin Wang, Helen Gu, Victor Zhang, Anjali Bhardwaj, Timothy Gao.
