On the Hummus Route, a Utopuan Journey Between Cities, People, and Dreams
“Quite amazing, actually, for such a simple concept to develop into a major publishing event,” says Independent Publisher about On the Hummus Route, a book born out of a joint journey taken by a global team of 30 photographers, illustrators, chefs, restaurateurs, researchers, and philosophers. It was led and created by Gourmand award-winning Chief Editor Dan Alexander.
This book chronicles their journey, with essays and anecdotes “that transcend place and time – from ancient Egypt and Greek mythologies to the song of Rumi and the force of the future’s superfoods.” And a magical journey it is, 400-page mash-up of culture, cuisine, and science. The book succeeds on many levels, an art book, a cookbook, and a cultural/historical study.
