This week on Eat Your Words, host Cathy Erway is joined by Diana Abu-Jaber, author of the new culinary memoir, Life Without A Recipe.

Diana was born in Syracuse, New York to an American mother and a Jordanian father. Her family moved to Jordan a few times throughout her childhood, and elements of both her American and Jordanian experiences, as well as cross-cultural issues, especially culinary reflections, appear in her work.
