Very interesting local NPR radio show! The author talks about her book about
noodles (http://onpoint.wbur.org/2013/10/08/one-womans-global-quest-for-the-origins-of-pasta),
their origins, and her traveling along the Silk Road to sample local noodles all the way to China.

A lot of surprising stuff and amusing bits.
Some confirming my theory that peace can be achieved via sharing a good meal, before getting the cannons out!

Do give it a listen.
(Note: the last part of the show is about callers expressing their own experiences, may be less interesting?)

To Robert: Pierogis are mentioned...!
