    This one looks like an interesting book. Something different, something novel.
    Your review has revealed the book to be quite thought provoking. Food and the dinner table can make or break relations and countries it appears!

    Food related stories are so interesting. This sounds intriguing. Would check out the audiobook.

    Today only I was watching a documentary about the rise of avocado as a superfood, and how it has left it’s land of origin depleted of water..

      So true, Pratikshya. I keep reading similar things about quinoa. Once a staple food of Bolivia, and now it is affecting their ecological sustainability.

    Food is definitely the most powerful. Aakhir husband k pyaar ka rashta bhi pet se hi jaata hai. Apart, Food has the power to heal!

    the similar words and origin is interesting, as does the idea of treating people as guests and being hospitable! the story book sounds like an interesting read.

      Isn’t it? One would never expect hospitality and hostility to have the same origins. I hope you enjoy the book.
