This is the SPECIAL EDITION, HARD COVER, SIGNED COPY of the book. The unsigned version is available, as is the paper back version.

I spent some time living in Pakistan, and instantly fell in love with the food, the people, the culture, and especially, the women. I’ve traveled all over the world, immersing myself in different cultures and learning the recipes of the countries I’ve visited, to better understand the people through what they eat and the love they put into their food. In my experience, the best way to get to know a culture and peoples is through their cuisine. It’s an opening to create bonds and life-long memories with them as well; while you may start as strangers, you end the experience with life-long memories.

Unfortunately, the wonderful flavors of the food of Afghanistan and Pakistan are mostly unknown to people outside of both countries. Language, measurements, spices, wars, they’re all barriers to us demystifying the wonderful flavors of this region. And yet, the women in these countries spend a lifetime learning these recipes; they don’t write them down, they don’t measure the ingredients. They cook only over fire. And they lovingly create these delicious dishes for their families and especially, their guests.

I have taken the time to “translate” for you some of my favorite recipes from both countries. It’s my goal to support women’s empowerment initiatives through your experience with their cuisine. I hope you enjoy!

Please note that shipping costs are high due to the weight of the book, transportation costs, and materials – we want to maximize the monies going to women’s empowerment and feeding the poor in war-torn countries. If you are local, you always have the option to pick up and/or contact me for drop-off.

Remember that with every purchase from us, you are supporting women’s empowerment issues in war-torn regions; Empower Women, Change the World.

    “[This book is] absolutely beautiful. BEAUTIFUL! [Christine] put so much heart and soul into this. This effort truly is empowerment to all women, I know [her] focus was the Middle East, but truly, as humans, we have less hate when we find commonality. That commonality may be in sewing, quilting, sports, music, any hobby, and most certainly in cooking and eating because those are life. This book empowers women ALL over to find the common, to find less hate. It is absolutely lovely. ~ Yvonda Anglin Sieber

    “I’ve had great fun cooking out of this book for my family of 3. The recipes are very approachable, using easy to find ingredients or offering substitute suggestions to be flexible for what we have on hand in our pantry. The flavors are rich and satisfying for us adults as well as our 7 year old daughter who loves the recipes too. One of the most wonderful moments we had exploring this incredible food was connecting the flavors of the black bean dish we were eating to the book my daughter was reading at the time: I Am Malala. Eating some of the same food that Malala might have gave my daughter a more visceral connection to the girl she was reading about. This book continues the tender, ancient tradition of finding ways to build compassion and understanding with our fellow humans through the tangible and comforting ritual of a shared meal.” ~ Stephanie Pierce, Traverse City, MI

    “As a foodie, I love to be adventurous in the kitchen. I’ve enjoyed Indian and Middle Eastern cuisine all my life, but never had exposure to the tastes of Afghanistan and Pakistan. Thankfully, I found Christine’s beautifully written and easy to follow recipes of the Silk Road. My family loves the Village Chicken Karahi, and the Pakistani Aloo-Keema. And the Jaan-E-Ama yogurt and cucumber dip goes so well with both entrees. I can’t wait for Christine’s cookbook so I can further explore the entire range of flavors from the Silk Road!” ~ Tom Luscher, Annapolis, MD

    “Christine has done an amazing job of bringing the wonderful flavors and experience of cooking Afghan and Pakistani food to people in a very approachable way, with easy-to-follow recipes and instructions. My family enjoyed everything we made and tried, and my children are now big fans and even enjoy cooking the dishes with me. All of the dishes were authentic and brought back fond memories of eating them with friends around the world!” ~ Dean Meyer, Augusta, GA

    “My husband and I have fallen in love with the cuisine of Afghanistan and Pakistan through these easy to follow recipes. What a delightful surprise during a global lockdown, to discover a heartfelt connection to women and a culture on the other side of the world through food. Thank you, Christine. Your love and support for the people, their way of life and their food is so evident in the recipes you have adapted for us Westerners in this cookbook.” ~ Susan Hood, Bend, OR
