Love it!! Feb 9, 2008
I'm Persian and my mother is an incredible cook with vast repertoire. So, I didn't start cooking until I went off to med school. I needed a beginners cookbook & this is one that leads to consistently delicious and authentic meals. The basics done well, with plenty of helpful tips. The glossary in back is also helpful. Would HIGHLY recommend to those learning to cook Persian/Iranian food. If you're looking for more avant garde Perisan foods, I'd try her other book From Persia to Napa: Wine at the Persian Table.
More than a cookbook Apr 14, 2007
This book offers a great deal of cultural background in addition to its fantastic recipes. Highly recommended (especially the Pistachio Soup recipe on page 45).
yum !!! Apr 11, 2007
I love this book because I lived (30 years ago) in Iran and enjoyed the food very much. This is the first Iranian cookbook I found, with excellent recipes, very easy for me to duplicate...and enjoy!
The perfect introduction to Persian Cuisine... Jul 12, 2006
As a Persian who's trying to learn to cook persian food, this is the best Persian cookbook I have. It lists the most popular foods, the receipes are easy to follow and turn out great! Almost as good as my own mom cooks them... I would definitley recommend this book!
Love it, gifted it, traveled with it! Feb 2, 2006
I have used many of the recipes, modified them, cooked them with friends and family. I have given my first copy away to my mom and then had to search bookstores to replace it. I even took it on the plane when I visited my family to make a special dinner for my dad's birthday with the whole family there. Grandma even loved it! I especially like to make the crusted saffron, yogurt rice for others. The presentation is great, but best made with a friend to share in the prep. As the author says, nushjan!
