Silk Road Cooking

Silk Road Cooking: A Vegetarian Journey Silk Road Cooking: A Vegetarian Journey by Najmieh Batmanglij


My review


rating: 5 of 5 stars
I love, love, love this book! I got it from the library and I fear that I will soon be paying overdue fees as I can't bear to part with it. So far I've made a palow that was absolutely delicious, and I've got my eye on many more recipes. I am fascinated with Central Asia and I really loved the travelogue/ anthropological viewpoint of the book. Plus the author has filled it with delicious stories and quotes from Rumi. I agree with the other poster who said she'd spent more time reading it than cooking!
