Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Maideh Mazda's In a Persian Kitchen is at once a fascinating collection of recipes and, for anyone interested in the foods of other lands, a pleasure to read." —The New York Times

"This book is well worth owning for its appearance alone, for its binding, paper, chapter introductions, illustrations, and type faces are consistently graceful, appropriate, and charming. In fact, grace is the keynote of this whole volume... " —The Christian Science Monitor

"From the beginning pages on how to prepare Yogurt on through the salads and desserts, one is constantly aware of the delicate combination of flavors, clear concise directions and exciting recipes in each chapter." —St. Paul Dispatch

"Spicy reading of an unusual kind." — Asahi Evening News

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.
