The team at NooshTube knows that food is far more than its nutritional value – it is history, culture, adventure, etc. So, we sought a tangible and sensory platform through which we could bring this notion to fellow Nooshtubers and foodies. Our partners at Dinner Lab gave us an amazing opportunity to realize this goal in the creation of a culinary adventure to highlight the many dishes of the Silk Road. On May 8-9, we debuted our Silk Road menu to a host of delighted guests in Washington, DC and Baltimore.

Recently, Monaem Mabrouki video-called his cousin in Tunisia to show him what he was cooking for dinner. It was a fragrant chicken stew, the recipe for which he had picked up from a friend: onions, saffron, and apples, amongst a host of other spices.

The coming of spring is celebrated throughout the world in various festivities and holidays. Iran and Central Asian countries celebrate the season by holding a large, collective picnic! Throughout the region, families are spreading their picnic sheets and blankets to celebrate Sizdah Bedar, the final day of the Nowruz or New Year’s holiday rituals. Sizdah Bedar literally means “Be rid of 13th” or “Going Out on 13th”, traditionally celebrating the new agricultural year. Nowadays, it is a commemoration of nature, and the holiday is accordingly known as Ruz-e-Tabiat, or the Day of Nature.
