This is a great cookbook. Very well written. Excellent pictures. Lovely descriptions of the history of the various recipes and a great read. I can hardly wait to try them out. Next best thing to dining in Iran, which considering the political state of affairs is currently impossible. Highly recommend for any other foodies wishing to try heathful tasty dishes.

This is one of the very few cookbooks I have actually cooked my way through. Even my notoriously picky Velveeta-loving husband has started requesting Persian dinners. Fabulous.
