This traditional pastime is a fun and easy method of divination that's perfect for those long gossipy talks with friends over a steaming cup of coffee, whether at your kitchen table or at the corner café.
Each week, The Splendid Table brings you stories that expand your world view, inspire you to try something new, and show how food brings us together. We rely on you to do this. You have the power to keep us cooking, sharing these stories, and helping you in the kitchen.
Donate today for as little as $5.00 a month. Your gift only takes a few minutes and has a lasting impact on The Splendid Table.
