At the crossroad between Asia, the Caucasus, North Africa, and Europe, the Middle East has always been a hub for all kinds of culinary exchanges. During the first Persian Empire, rice, poultry as well as fruits were incorporated into the local diet, which became the foundation for modern Middle Eastern food. Spices arrived from the Orient, and figs, dates, as well as nuts, were brought by merchants to conquered lands. The region was also influenced by dumplings from Mongol invaders, tomatoes from the New World, okra from Africa, and spices from the Spice Islands.
