Persian cuisine reflects a 7,000 year history of intermingling of numerous nations and cultures, leading to diverse flavours and regional recipes. This rich cuisine has been intertwined with spices for centuries to enhance the flavour and elevate the taste to the next level. Persian food is colourful, decadent and flavoursome. Unlike the general belief it can also be simple, healthy with easy-to-come-by ingredients with ancient recipes that have evolved throughout centuries. Composed of an abundance of ingredients Persian cookery reflects Iran's rich but rather neglected and underestimated culinary resources.
Quick and easy Persian food is possible. By sparing yourself the trouble of using tens of ingredients, you can achieve great results while keeping things simple. By adapting the recipes I have cooked, eaten and enjoyed hundreds of times, I hope to pass them on to you so that you can cherish them too.
These recipes have been perfected through many repeated attempts, cooked at home, shared during workshops and in the test kitchen dozens of times. You can find about 50 recipes in my cookbook. I can guarantee that they will bring you neither disappointment nor discomfort and that not a single ingredient will be wasted.
