Introduction to Iranian cooking,
This review is from: A Taste of Persia: An Introduction to Persian Cuisine (Paperback)
The only fault I can find with this book is that none of the adverts for it on Amazon tell you that it is intended for the US market, so the section on suppliers is irrelevant to UK cooks.The section on measurement is, however, very clear.The section on ingredients is quite good but is vague on alternatives for the rarer ingredients and makes no allowances for the use of pomegranate molasses.
The book is attractive, well printed, easy to read and clearly laid out, very much in the DK style. One curios omission is that there is no section for either breads or baking although a couple of cake and biscuit recipes appear in the deserts section.
This sets out to be an introduction to Iranian cookery and does that well for a reasonable price.
