Fluent in Farsi Food?

Farsi Food Pic

Your Farsi a little rusty? No worries! With our Afghan friends we speak fluent FOOD. Typical of their hospitality, yesterday they invited us to a house warming feast for their new little home in a charming German village. We'd all met first in the refugee camp in Limburg, and fell in love with the young, spunky mother and her five ranging from toddler to twenty years old. They've been featured in many of my refugee posts, and now I'm busy working to compose the long-form rendition of their family's riveting history. One small triumph seeing this family become independent, the children attend local German school, and this authentic Afghan spread made by their own hands displayed beautifully on their own kitchen table.
