HASH(0x8b708168) out of 5 stars This helped me have a great party for ADULTS 14 Jun. 2015

OK I cheated I bought this for myself, figuring that my skill level as a non-Persian adult was probably on about the level of a Persian child. And I was right! This is a great book if you want to dip your toe in the charming New Year customs of the Persian world (Iran, Afghanistan, Kurdistan) with recipes that are easy to follow.

HASH(0x8b1d2084) out of 5 stars Wonderful book for children!!!.... 18 Mar. 2008
By B. Marling - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Spiral-bound
... and for adults like me who want to have fun in the kitchen!

A beautiful book to share with the whole family. "Happy Nowruz" gives you everything you need to celebrate the arrival of spring and the Persian New Year -- kid-friendly recipes for pomegranate popsicles and cinnamon date buns, the history and traditions of the celebration in Iran, the laying of the Nowruz Table with decorated eggs and goldfish (a symbol for the beginning of creation).

A bounty of refreshing ideas for drawing the family together. A perfect blend of cooking, art, poetry, mythology and all the stuff of life worth celebrating with the people you love.

I followed the Lubia Polow (a red rice and chicken dish) recipe with my roommates to great success. Everyone loved it! (and thought I was a culinary genius)

I highly recommend this book to anyone who wants to have a good time making delicious food!

As a cook and a cookbook collector, I was very excited to get this book, expecting to be like all other books of Mrs. Batmanglij; unfortunately not so well. It looks like fabricated plan with some great recipes ( repeated in her other books) with some very unusual crafts trying to make this festivities as much as possible American. I guess it was meant to be good but not meeting my expectation.
Not much recommended as her other books.

HASH(0x8b8b9774) out of 5 stars Great book! 30 April 2008

I love that this cookbook has traditional recipes and information about the Persian New Year. The photos and descriptions are terrific. My only complaint is that some of the recipes have ingredients that are not easy to come by, and no substitutions are noted (nor is there info on whether some of the minor, hard to find ingredients could be omitted, if necessary).

HASH(0x8b1df744) out of 5 stars Very Good 4 April 2009

I really like the book - the easiest to use of all of her cook books. As the mother of two children with an Iranian father, this book really helped us to incorporate celebrating Nowruz into our family traditions. The bean soup (ash-e resh-te) recipe was great. We made the cream puffs and that turned out delicious (couldn't get the temperature reading she suggests, but they were fine anyway). I also made red rice with green beans (a childhood favorite of my husband's) - we loved it. Regarding the recipes here are a few tips:
1. the author always stipulates way more onion than necessary, so cut it by at least half.
2. You can leave out the saffron - the recipe will still be good.
3. You can substitute sour cream for Kashk (whey) - I do this all the time in the eggplant dip.
