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 a winner-I have several Persian food cookbooks, including ones that feature regional recipes. This is an updated book with contemporary recipes that fit today's kind of cooking. I was really pleased with it.
