Dissappointing, nothing special, no photos, ordinary Persian recipes
This book has a great glossary of Persian-english foods, it also has a good shoppers guide to help you find persian markets in your area (however, not up to date). The author gives you a lot of stories from her life and gives a brief history lesson on the foods of Iran, it also includes a map! As far as the recipes go this book is probably not good for a novice in the Persian kitchen, if you didn't grow up in Iran or if you've never tasted Persian cuisine it would be hard to make these recipes because there are very few photos of the finished product and they are very small black and white pictures so you can't really see how it's supposed to look when it's finished. If you don't need photos this book would be great for you. All of the well known Persian recipes are in this book. This was more of a history/biography book than a cookbook.Was this review helpful?
