This blog has been in existence for over five years because of you - my readers. Your words of support, encouragement and gratitude has fueled my search for interesting recipes, stories and cultural tidbits that makes Afghanistan so unique.
In an effort to keep fresh, I’ve recently revamped the blog - new site, new photos, new categories (vegetarian and gluten free). I hope the new structure makes it easy to find recipes and engages you further in learning about Afghanistan. During this process, we’ve experienced a few technical difficulties - if you’ve been spammed, please accept my apology.
I would like to give back to you, my readers, a special gift of two copies of Book of Photographs by my photographer friend Joe Hoyt, who traveled in Afghanistan from 1970-1975.
Seven years ago, I met Joe when we were panelists at an event in San Francisco. When I first saw Joe’s photos, I was brought to tears. Through his small lense, he has captured the Afghanistan I once knew, “From an Era of Peace”, so perfectly named.
Praise for Joe’s work:
