One way to celebrate Darwin Day is by having a “Phylum Feast” — that is, a potluck dinner where the items are as biologically diverse as possible.
Hugh Kramer has an example of a menu used for such a feast:
Mammalia: Minke Whale meat
Aves: Smoked Turkey slices
Teleostoma: Pickled Herring
Bivalvia: Mya (clams) from mouth of the Honna River
Gastropoda: commercial escargot
Malacostraca: commercial shrimp
Pteridophyta: commercial fern fiddleheads
Monocots: Onions, rice
Dicots: Pecans, spinach
Fungi: commercial Agaricus (mushrooms)
Bacteria: villi (Finnish Longmilk (yogurt))
All served with primordial soup, of course 🙂
How are you celebrating next week?
