bowl of yogurt with blueberries and granolaFrom the ancient lands of central Asia, India and Persia, this exotic food moved on to the Roman Empire and graced the table of Pliny the Elder, before traveling with the Medieval Turks to eventually conquer the world.  You too, can be part of its history!
