Borrowed Recipes: Migrant Food Worlds of the Silk Roads

Many of the foods we enjoy in Los Angeles arrived via long journeys along the ancient Silk Roads, and are the result of countless exchanges between cultures in East and Central Asia, Persia, Western Asia, North Africa, and the Mediterranean. Join us for a conversation about these often hidden—and delicious—culinary histories moderated by science writer Nicola Twilley of the podcast Gastropod, chef Bughra Arkin of Dolan’s Uyghur Cuisine, food archaeologist Farrell Monaco of the blog Tavola Mediterranea, food historian Joseph Nagy of Harvard University, and LAist food critic Elina Shatkin.
