Day of Honey: Mediterranean Food


Day of Honey: Mediterranean Food We visit an exotic and romantic culture for a special Valentine's Edition of the food show on Charlotte Talks. Annia Ciezadlo wanted a normal marriage with her Lebanese husband. Instead she got six years of violence and fear while living in Iraq and Lebanon. Ciezadlo survived those years by plunging into the world of Mediterranean cuisine. She learned her husband's family food secrets. She ate with Sunni's, Shiites and Arab Christians and the focus was always how food could unite people instead of dividing them. Ciezadlo joins and we've also invited the owner of a local Mediterranean restaurant. We'll talk about some of the most popular dishes in this cuisine and try some samples.
