The definitive Iranian cookbook,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: New Food of Life: Ancient Persian and Modern Iranian Cooking and Ceremonies (Hardcover)
This is without doubt the best of the Iranian cookbooks I have, being quite comprehensive in its range of recipes. It includes plenty of good colour photography, albeit for only about half the recipes, information on ingredients and techniques, cultural information about Iranian ceremonies and what is eaten during them, ideas for menu building, plus plenty of historical information and anecdotes.
There is another book available by the same author which is in essence a cut-down version of this book, A Taste of Persia: An Introduction to Persian Cuisine. I also recommend Margaret Shaida's The Legendary Cuisine of Persia as a good introductory volume in Persian cuisine.
