CNN iReporter Bobby Lee Whitaker of Decatur, Georgia, responded to the controversy over Paula Deen's use of racially-charged language, saying:

“During a legal deposition, you are required to tell the truth as per the question asked. For someone to admit the truth, she is penalized by having her contract terminated. I am Black and have been for 70 years; if a Black man held me up with a gun, I probably would have called him or referred to him in some stronger language."

World-renowned chef, author and Emmy winning television personality Anthony Bourdain visits Tangier, Morocco in the next episode of "Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown," airing Sunday, May 12, at 9 p.m. ET. Follow the show on Twitter and Facebook.

One of the signature photos people always take home with them from Morocco is of heaping piles of spices in a variety of enticing colorful displays. These setups aspire to overwhelm visitors with the enchantment of a new and undiscovered place – and to encourage wide-eyed tourists to part with their dollars.

Diane Rice of Milwaukee, Wisconsin, captured a singular image of one of those remarkably shaped groupings of spice cones, a monument to Morocco's exotic qualities.

Picture this scene: You're just digging into your restaurant meal, the wine is flowing and the ambiance is perfect - and then, bam! Your dining companion swats away your hand, scolding you for touching the appetizer before she could take a photo.

Sound familiar? The trend of photographing one's food, brought about in large part by apps like Instagram, can seem obnoxious on many levels. But Mark Hill, director of photography at Turner Broadcasting Systems Inc., says it's all about preserving memories.

"Meals are special times for people ... the picture of the food is a representation of that moment," he said. "Food is very fleeting in our lives. It's on our plate and 20 minutes later it's gone and we have an empty dish."

Those meals become even more special when they are being enjoyed while traveling. Looking back on a photo of a meal eaten overseas can conjure up the sights, sounds, scents and tastes of the trip.

This spring, chef and author Anthony Bourdain will take his adventure-seeking appetite - and CNN viewers - along on a journey of cultures and cuisine from around the world on his new show, "Parts Unknown."
