    One thought on “A Taste of Persia: An Introduction to Persian Cooking”

    1. Persian food is so delicious. Although I know how to make several dishes I appreciate this cookbook's collection of some of the most classic fare. If you've never had the pleasure of tasting Persian cuisine I highly recommend visiting a Persian restaurant and attempting some of the recipes in this book.

    2. I've tried close to half of the recipes in this book and they've all been fantastic. I've had some experience with Persian food and a couple of other cookbooks that have some good stuff in them, but this one is a real winner. Well written, with some good ethnographical notes, and the recipes are all very clear and unambiguous. There are a few ingredients that are hard to find the Pacific Northwest (fenugreek leaves?) but the author often has much more attainable substitutes listed. This book wou [...]

    3. This is an excellent resource full of wonderful recipes. They are clearly laid out and easy to follow, with lovely photos of the final dishes. I particularly like that each recipe ends with Nush-e Jan! (may your soul be nourished). Truly, hospitality is the soul of Persian cookery [] [A] Persian table always provides nan-o panir-o, sabzi'khodan, which is to say, bread, cheese, and fresh vegetables and herbs.(excerpt from Appetizers)There are rice recipes galore as well as several kebab, soup, st [...]

    4. Due to the political situation I read a lot about this part of the world lately and when I saw this cookbook on offer I was curious. I cook a lot and I always love to explore other countries' recipes - and the countries themselves as well.This cook book is really amazing! It is a wonderful mixture of interesting and very promising looking recipes (I must admit that I haven't tried all of them yet) and informations about herbs and spices, customs and of course about the people living there.The in [...]

    5. Not one recipe in this book looks appealing enough for me to try it, which forces me to ask myself why I bought it in the first place. Never was successful with ANY recipe requiring eggplant, plus lamb and veal I just don't like, which really narrows down the recipes in this book to just a few, which unfortunately require ingredients unobtainable in my area.

    6. About the same as her other cookbook "Persian Food for the Healthy Kitchen," though I did really enjoy the in-depth historical background on the food at the beginning of each section. I ended up only copying down the recipes for Garlic & Seville Orange Fish and Saffron Rice Pudding.
