The ill anti-immigrant and -refugee wind blowing out of the White House in Washington, DC, does not represent the America we know, nor does it speak to our experience exploring the world’s culinary backstreets. The cities and countries where we work – the United States included – have always been havens for those looking for a better, safer place. All have come with their food, making their new home a truly better place for us all and becoming an indispensible part of its fabric in the process.

When the government goes low, we go in search of more stories of immigrants and refugees who have left a culinary mark on their adopted land and whose tales have always been essential elements in what we do here at CB. In their honor, this week we are running some of our favorites of these kinds of stories from the CB archive (like that of Mr. Tomasian, pictured above, an Armenian kebab maker in Athens).

Additionally, in support for an institution whose struggle for liberty is so crucial right now, for the next week, we will be donating 50% of our company’s revenue to the ACLU. Every culinary walk booked, every book sold, every iPhone app downloaded, half of the price tag amount will be donated directly to their programs. We hope it will help. If you agree with us, you can also donate directly here.
