Food, Love, and War

Tuesday, April 05, 2011

Annia Ciezadlo gives an account of civilian life during wartime. She spent six years living in Baghdad and Beirut, where she broke bread with Shiites and Sunnis, warlords and refugees, matriarchs and mullahs. Day of Honey: A Memoir of Food, Love, and War is about the hunger for food and friendship in times of war, and she writes about food and the rituals of eating to show a side of the Middle East that most Americans never see.

I remember Annia when she worked at the Lexington Food Co-op in Buffalo, NY. She wrote an excellent article on the Yeast-West bread co.
