Through our Ethniche series, we've been searching out great global cuisine around the metro area for nearly three years. Recently, we've focused on food from the countries on President Trump's list of countries on which he has tried to place an immigration and refugee ban (so far, two of Trump's executive orders have been blocked by the courts). After eating at restaurants and markets representing six of the seven countries, Mark Antonation talked to KUNC community radio about his mission to share the food of Iran, Iraq, Syria, Sudan, Somalia, Libya and Yemen with Westword readers.
Here's a link to that KUNC story, along with our other explorations into the food of those countries represented in metro Denver. So far, we've hit every country except Libya.
Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
