Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Batmanglij, an Iranian emigre who is a culinary historian, effectively weaves Iranian cookery with ancient Persian legends and poetry (unfortunately, many appear sans attributions or dates), and descriptions of traditional ceremonies and holidays. The author serves up a variety of delicacies, such as an eggplant with pomegranate appetizer; stuffed fruits or vegetables, or dolmeh, like grape leaves or apples stuffed with peas and meat; lamb's head and feet soup; omeletskookoofilled with meat, vegetables or herbs; lamb brochettes; stuffed fish with tamarind; sauteed brains; rice with sour cherries; rhubarb stew; mango pickles; carrot preserves; baklava; and hot and cold drinks. The uncomplicated recipes feature preparation and cooking times; lists of Iranian specialty stores in the U.S., and necessary kitchen equipment and ingredients for a Persian pantry, and a Persian-English glossary are included. Illustrations. (September 2)

    If you love the tastes of Persia/Iran

    I had a copy of this book many years ago and used it frequently for the entertaining of guests to rave reviews. Someone stole my copy and I've missed it ever since. I even took Farsi in school so I could pronounce the names of the dishes so when others would ask me what they were they could order them in their favorite Persian restaurants later. I highly recommend this book to anyone who loves Iranian food or people and wants to learn simple to complex dishes that are typical of the area. I hope this helps you with your decision.
