If we are what we eat, then we are human history itself. Food is not a mere act of nutritional consumption - it is science, migration, art, religion, math, and more - all rolled into a crispy samosa.
Strewn along the world's many trade routes and ports were bustling caravanserais, or traveler's inns, where stories and dinners were shared with fellow merchants and wanderers alike. Though very few of these caravanserais exist today, fortunately, many of us wanderers still do. On my own journeys, I've joined forces and spoons with companies like Nooshtube, Dinner Lab, and RumiSpice,
to give family, friends, and perfect strangers a taste of the caravanserai experience.
I've always feared single portion recipes or 'servings for two'. You see, I grew up with pots and pans that cooked for a minimum of 15 people - and that's just for a normal dinner at home.
That would be my election slogan if I were ever to run for the commander of the world.
I started cooking the Thanksgiving feast when I was in seventh grade (I burned the turkey - picture proof will soon be provided). It soon became a tradition that I would cook for my 40+ family members an array of dishes that represented the countries I traveled to. Very American of us.
... and then some global food-frolicking
