Authentic and Delicious Persian Cuisine,
By A Customer
This review is from: In a Persian Kitchen: Favourite Recipes from the Near East (Paperback)
I bought my copy of this book years ago at a gathering of folks from the Society of Creative Anachronisms. I have an Iranian friend who makes great chicken Fesenjan with that amazing rice (chelo) with the crispy stuff on the bottom (tadeek), and I wanted to be able to do so myself. Well, the Khoreshe Fesenjan recipe and instructions on making Chelo helped me get there (along with several years of practice)!
If you are looking for a great source of all those delicious persian dishes you may have had in a restaurant or at a friends house, or are just looking to try a new style of food, In a Persian Kitchen is the book to buy.
Each recipe is introduced with a story about the food or Maideh Mazdah's childhood memories, and the instructions are thorough and easy to understand.
