There's no simple answer to the complexities of food history
Love it. Thank you Majed.
Ahmed, your aunt really has 600 recipes? You will be busy for a long time. This sounds like a worthwhile project. I hope you can pare them down.
This newsletter was an edition I didn’t know I needed! After an emergency trip back home (Canada) in March, I decided I want to document all the recipes from all of my immediate family members into a family cookbook, and I only have limited time to do it. Your post has reenergized me and given me the motivation to get going on my aunt’s huge list of over 500 recipes.
Another thoughtful post. I know many people attach the "authentic" label to food like it can be pinpointed to one place, one person, one time. That is not the nature of food.
Here’s the answer dear Dianne
