What do motorcycles and food have in common?

By all accounts, Allan Karl is a man in search of meaning, and good recipes. In his book "Forks," Karl recounts the story of why and how he spent three years traveling across five continents by motorcycle, looking for culture and connection.

He also looked for recipes, and includes one from every country in his book, from Alaskan salmon to Turkish stuffed mussels.

Karl will be at the Atherton Market, 2104 South Blvd. (at Tremont and South), from 5 to 7 p.m. Tuesday to talk about food and his journey, including recipe samples (and a book signing, of course). Details: facebook/events.
