Culinary Crossroads


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.
