The recipes are easy to follow and measurements precise.
I highly recommend this book - if even only for your table top!
Only afterwards did I become aware that it was strictly vegetarian - you couldn't miss meat less.
Most Helpful Customer Reviews on Amazon.com (beta)
The book is lavishly illustrated with pictures and stories from the regions of the recipes. Although broadly diverse, the cooking of Batmanglij's native Iran is exceptionally well-represented.
The recipes themselves are easy to follow, but not intended for the casual cook. Pomegranate juice, rose water, pistachios and saffron are common, but a prepared cook will find the rewards worthy the effort and expense. It has been a delightful change for my carnivorous family to reduce our meat consumption and enliven our larder.
