7 New Foods in 7 Days

Caitlin Murray Giles was a woman on a mission: to introduce her family to seven new foods in seven days. Artichokes, rhubarb, duck, quinoa, lentils, tofu and exotic mushrooms were on the menu. Get the recipes and reviews.

So what did she learn? “It’s not easy to teach a 3-year-old how to eat an artichoke and too much rhubarb crisp gives kids belly aches. But more importantly, it isn’t as hard as you might think to escape your dinnertime food.”
