One Great Bite
by Ann Thurlow
From the window in the pretty restaurant in Georgetown, you can see the Asian women walking home from their shifts at the fish plant. It is cultures meeting and it seems to work. So does this soup in front of me. You can call it chowder and you should—even if the broth is red and the spices are Thai. This is how you add a new thing to make something even better than the old thing. You can have it the old way, you can have it the new way. The point: both ways are just fine.
