In her journey through Central Asia, Caroline Eden uses food as a platform from which to explore the history and culture of this under-reported region, a land on the old Silk Road and at the crossroads of East and West. Caroline Eden stops by the podcast to talk about the ‘Stans, their food, and her new book Red Sands: Reportage and Recipes Through Central Asia from Hinterland to Heartland (Quadrille 2020), now available in a beautiful hardback stuffed with reportage, photographs, and recipes. In addition to discussing Red Sands and the cultural influence of Russian and China in the region, Caroline Eden reads an excerpt of her book.
