520 A food writer travels the Silk Road, immersing herself in
a moveable feast of foods and cultures and discovering
some surprising truths about commitment, independence, and
love. As a newlywed traveling in Italy, Jen Lin-Liu was
struck by culinary echoes of the delicacies she ate and
cooked back in China, where she'd lived for more than a
decade. Who really invented the noodle? she wondered,
like many before her. But also: How had food and culture
moved along the Silk Road, the ancient trade route linking
Asia to Europe-and what could still be felt of those long-
ago migrations? With her new husband's blessing, she set
out to discover the connections, both historical and
personal, eating a path through western China and on into
Central Asia, Iran, Turkey, and across the Mediterranean.
The journey takes Lin-Liu into the private kitchens where
the headscarves come off and women not only knead and
simmer but also confess and confide. The thin rounds of
dough stuffed with meat that are dumplings in Beijing
evolve into manti in Turkey-their tiny size the measure
of a bride's worth-and end as tortellini in Italy. And as
she stirs and samples, listening to the women talk about
their lives and longings, Lin-Liu gains a new appreciation
of her own marriage, learning to savor the sweetness of
love freely chosen.
