Najmieh has done a great job

I am persian myself and bought the book as part of a wedding present for my friend and his wife. Although they ar Iranians (persians) like most who have grown up outside of Iran don't know much about cooking the lovely food. You can not get decent persian cooks in resturants either so one has to learn and appreciate the food. This book is beautifully presented and the recepies are very good. It makes a great present for anyone who is interested in cooking. Persian food is also a little varied between families and regions so you need to adjust some of the recepies to match you preferences so experiment. For example the sweet and sour dishes you need to adjust the chashni (seasoning).
Its a lovely book and now I have ordered one for myself.
