106: Taste of Persia

This week on Milk Street Radio, we discover the backstreet cooking of Armenia, Georgia and Iran with Naomi DuGuid: “We sit and sip tea together. That’s just magical — you know we don’t have a language, but we’re so appreciating that moment… there’s just this feeling… it’s a huge world but we can hold hands across the sea, across a table.” Also, Fuchsia Dunlop joins us live at Milk Street; The New Yorker’s Adam Gopnik discusses ethical eating; we learn a better way to make stew; and, finally, Christopher Kimball and Sarah Moulton take your calls.
