For Donia Bijan's family, food has been the language they use to tell their stories and communicate their love. In 1978, when the Islamic revolution in Iran threatened their safety, they fled to California's Bay Area, where the familiar flavors of Bijan's mother's cooking formed a bridge to the life left behind. Now, through the prism of food, award-winning chef Donia Bijan unwinds her story, finding at the heart of it all is her mother, whose love and support enabled Bijan to realize her dreams.
There will be a book signing and reception after her talk.
