WIP Book Club: On the Noodle Road

  • on-the-noodle-roadMay 16, 2019, 7:30pm

    Did Marco Polo really bring noodles from China to Italy?  If not, where did they come from and where did this notion come from?  Jen Lin-Liu in On the Noodle Road: From Beijing to Rome with Love and Pasta sets out to discover connections, both historical and personal, while eating a path through western China and on into Central Asia, Iran, Turkey, and across the Mediterranean.

    This event's location is TBD.  Remember to mention the Wellesley-in-Pasadena book club at Vroman's to receive a 20% discount.

  • Italy was the only place I'd visited where people described kitchen implements as having souls of their own.
