I’m listening to a lot of BBC Food Programme podcasts at the moment as I prepare to hunker down and write my book for Bloomsbury Academic this summer. And as I listen to stories of Syrian food and make copious notes, I remember how much I learned from the Syrians on my own doorstep. And I didn’t even post the links here. So as I read, listen and cram, I’m revisiting my blog here with purpose. So let’s start with the sometimes great, often clunky, always heartwarming series I did earlier this year for Radio Reverb.
