Our book continues its journey, between overloaded stalls in busy market alleys of ancient cities, to hushed high-end restaurants lit with massive crystal chandeliers – and through it all, on this hummus route, we discover people.
It’s a journey of the heart, showing us over and over again that in the end, it’s all about humanity, and those people who are beautiful, creative, and mostly filled with humor, who know how to take this raw ingredient and transform it into a story, into a singular moment that makes you miss a heartbeat, into a dream. It’s a secret cult of people who have a big heart, and want to do good, with food, and these are things that cannot be faked – the heart and food.

“She would defend herself, saying that love, no matter what else it might be, was a natural talent. She would say: You are either born knowing how, or you never know.”
