4.0 out of 5 stars Great anthology, 22 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Kate O'Reilly's "Peeling" is particularly good. Hope they publish a second volume. April de Angelis's play about Albie Sachs is also highly commendable.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fabulous new favourite cook book, 12 May 2013
Although not a Persian myself, I grew up with some of the London Persian 'mafia', many of whom I still share meals with today - often eating at Hafez or Alounak on Westbourne Grove and partaking in Nourouz feasts at friends' homes. So I know and love Persian food. This book is a brilliant breath of fresh air: it offers all of the quintessential elements - pomegranate, tamarind, rosewater etc. in an exciting, contemporary, global context. The recipes are healthy, clean, and exotic, and the style of writing makes even the more complex methods easy enough to follow. Some of the Persian cookbooks out there are so slavishly traditional that they just haven't moved on. Not this one; this is one for fun, modern, global Persians, as well as for those new to Persian food.
