For centuries fired ovens have shaped human settlements, cities, empires and our civilization. From cooking our food to forging metal for our wars and baking mud and bricks to build our cities, fire does it all. War kills, cities are too expensive to build, but food is something we can cook, and cook rather well. At Balkh Bukhara, we pay an ode to fire, our primal witness, with food that has evolved and has survived the most fires of both creation and destruction. Fires that were raged by armies of some of the greatest empires of the ancient and medieval world and fires that kindled the finest arts, culture, architecture, craftsmanship, religion, theology, trade and of course, food.
Central Asia is the cauldron where were forged and destroyed the greatest empires of the ancient and the medieval world. Chinese Huns and Qara Khitans; Arab Abbadsids; Persian Saffarids, Samanids, Safavids, Afsharids and Sassanids; Turk Ghaznavids, Seljuks and Khwarazmian; Turco-Mongol Timurids, Chagatais and Mughals; besides the Mongols, the Kushans and even Greek Seleucids – all these formidable dynasties have contributed to the rich history and culture of this region. The times also saw the rise and fall of the great cities of Samarqand, Merv, Nishapur, Isfahan, Khojand, Badakshan, Kabul, Khotan, Badakshan, Kashgar, Yarkand, Herat, Balkh and Bukhara. Of these Balk and Bukhara were probably the most celebrated ones, at least in the Indian subcontinent.
