Funerals and mourning highlight different cultural traditions around food

Halloween may be over but we still have All Souls Day to eat spooky things and think about death.

The book Death Warmed Over: Funeral Food, Rituals, and Customs From Around the World catalogs rituals from African-Americans to Zoroastrians, offering interesting trivia and recipes in between.
