The Uyghur Bakers of Kashgar, China

chinaI recently came across this amazing essay (with recipe) about bakers in Kashgar, China. Kashgar is located in the far western region of Xinjiang, which is home to the Chinese Muslim ethnic group known as Uyghurs. Uyghur cuisine is completely different that what North Americans are familiar with as Chinese cuisine, and has more of Middle Eastern and Central Asian flavor. Bread, in particular has a central place in Uyghur cuisine.
