Great because it has both english and farsi labels. Recipes are accurate even if the spellings aren't. :)

Authentic and straightforward recipes. The commentary sometimes feels like it's from the 1950's, but the cuisine has been around longer than that, so it's forgiven. Not the Persian royal cuisine that influenced cooking from India to Morocco, but good home-style basic comfort food. A fantastic resource, and a wonderful introduction if you've never cooked Persian before.
