MIR’s Uzbekistan & Silk Road Expertise Spotlighted in AFAR Magazine

Anya von Bremzen is an award-winning food writer and the author of such delectable cookbooks as Please to the Table and Mastering the Art of Soviet Cooking. A passionate foodie, world traveler, and expert on the cultures and cuisines of Russia and the former Soviet Republics, Anya fell in love with the country of Uzbekistan in Central Asia on a trip there in the early 1990s, when it was still a part of the Soviet Union. Ever since that first visit, she dreamed of one day making her return to the Silk Road. After two decades of waiting, news of Uzbekistan's progressive political and economic changes made over the last few years ultimately convinced Anya that now was the perfect time to revisit. She embarked on a custom-made Silk Road sampler through the modern capital, Tashkent, as well as the legendary oasis cities of Bukhara and Samarkand, all arranged with the help of MIR Corporation. Anya shared her experiences of her ultimate Uzbekistan adventure in the November/December issue of AFAR Magazine. Read More
