Thanks to assistance from the Canada Council for the Arts, I travelled to Europe to investigate the fascinating history of wheat. I am now working on a book. Not a textbookish book, but a personal and engaging history of the world's most controversial grain. Heading to Russia next! UPDATE: Russia was amazing!! Thank you Access Copyright Foundation for the research travel grant. Pictures soon!
Watch this short video on my travels produced by Bamboo Shoots for MaxTV as I go back to my ancestral village of Klosterdorf, Russia -- today known as Zmiivka, Ukraine.
