Delicious, innovative and accessible Persian inspired recipes
on 17 May 2013
Finally a cookbook has come onto the market which introduces Persian flavours to a Western audience in an accessible, innovative and health-conscious way. This book stands out through its inclusion of recipes for classic Persian favorites alongside modern Persian inspired dishes. It is a great introduction to Iranian food.
As a half-Iranian writer, cook and Persian-food enthusiast, I've long been waiting for a book like this and have really enjoyed the recipes I have tried so far (the beet burgers and the rhubarb and strawberry salad are already firm favorites in our house!). I really appreciated the number of vegetarian and gluten-free recipes in the book which makes it much more suited to today's modern audiences then most of the other Iranian cookbooks I own. All in all this was a fantastic find. Highly recommended.
