A wonderful present for anyone who loves cooking OR wants to know about Iran,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Saraban: A Chef's Journey Through Persia (Paperback)
Frankly after reading this book I can't see any point in anyone writing a Persian cookbook ever again!
The recipes are easy to follow, and though modern, are rooted firmly in traditional Persian cooking. As an Iranian cook used to the traditional flavours, I love the new take. The photos and travelogue provide a colourful and beautiful picture of Iran around 2010. The book itself is beautifully produced and would grace any coffee table. The only problem for me is that this book is so beautiful that I don't want to ruin it by using it in the kitchen! I tend to leave it in the next room and look at the recipes there.
