A Taste of Persia: An Introduction to Persian Cooking
This book is an introduction to the world┐s other ancient cuisine. Persia's cookery, like China┐s, carries within it thousands of years of history, change and refinement, yet still with its roots in ancient sources. A Taste of Persia is a collection of authentic recipes from one of the world┐s most sophisticated and ancient cuisines, chosen and adapted for today┐s lifestyle and kitchen. Here are light appetisers and marinated kebabs, hearty stews and rich, golden-crusted rices, among many other dishes, all fragrant with the distinctive Persian use of herbs, spices and fruits. Each recipe offers clear, easy-to-follow, step-by-step instructions. Most take less than an hour to prepare; many require only a few moments; many others can be made in advance. Besides its 100 recipes and 60 colour photographs, the book includes a useful glossary of Persian cooking techniques and ingredients, and a brief history of Persian cookery. Together these make a complete introduction to this remarkable cuisine.

I asked my friend from Iran to recommend an IranianPersian cookbook. He handed me this book! No other comments needed! I cannot wait to try some recipes. You may have to go to your local cultural district for the spiced and ingredients but I love those trips! Read full review
