Yasmin Khan believes we have more that unites us than divides us—and that nothing unites us more than food. The travel writer and former human rights activist has brought that philosophy to life in her two thought-provoking cookbooks—Saffron Tales: Recipes from the Persian Kitchen, and her latest release, Zaitoun: Recipes from the Palestinian Kitchen. She explores the cuisines of each region to bring her readers a better understanding of the people and the places. Yasmin talks about her experience working on Zaitoun, the lack of female voices in travel journalism, and the void left by Anthony Bourdain.
