Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Although Persian/Iranian recipes are included in general cookbooks on the Middle East, few other books focus on Iran, and none is as comprehensive as this one. This thoroughly researched work by Shaida, an English journalist who is married to an Iranian and lived in Iran for 25 years, serves as an excellent guide to a cuisine with a 3000-year-old history and far-reaching influences that have helped shape a variety of cuisines. Shaida provides dozens of recipes, many of them learned from her mother-in-law or given to her by friends and other Iranian home cooks; detailed headnotes provide culinary and cultural context, including many fascinating historical tidbits. Recommended for all Middle Eastern cookery collections and other larger libraries. Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.
