The Silk Road - Food Culture Travel Inspire


A trade route connecting the East to West, from China to the Mediterranean sea, the Silk Road was the backbone of trading, helping connect cultures and the world.



Now a UNESCO World Heritage Site, trade on the Silk Road was a significant factor in the development of the civilizations of China, the Indian subcontinent, Persia, Europe, the Horn of Africa and Arabia, opening long-distance, political and economic relations between the civilizations. Though silk was certainly the major trade item from China, many other goods were traded, and religions, and various technologies, as well as diseases, also traveled along the Silk Routes. In addition to economic trade, the Silk Road served as a means of carrying out cultural trade among the civilizations along its network.

Spices were commonly traded along the road. This weeks healthy superfood salad is inspired by The Silk Road using local produce. The warm spices rubbed into the salad create a delicious new multicultural taste, similar to the the diverse culture  along the road.
