Seeking a Renaissance in San Francisco
Another interesting find along the same vein, is the book: Cuisines of the Axis of Evil and Other Irritating States. The book is by Chris Fair, a South Asian political and military affairs analyst. As Fair says, “everything we eat is burdened with social, political, religious, and even militarized meaning!” The book gives you facts from these controversial countries, from their policies to their food! Of course, the book would not be complete without actual recipes from these controversial cuisines.
Here is a preview of some of the recipes you can find: Recipes! If you’re interested in buying yourself a copy, visit here: Amazon. NPR did an interesting feature on Chris Fair a few years ago, as well – Read the transcript here: NPR.
