Overview

Persian Cooking is a collection of 322 authentic recipes from one of the world's oldest culinary traditions. Clear and concise instructions make the dishes turn out exactly as they are supposed to.
Persian cooking is based on vegetables, fruits, grains and meat used in subtle and varied combinations. The food is neither highly spiced nor hot but seasoned with herbs. It is very nutritious. Many of the dishes are suitable for vegetarians and in many others, meat may be easily omitted.
The dishes can be made from ingredients found in almost any store. A guide to specialty stores is also included.
As has often been observed, rice preparation defines the quality of the Persian chef. It is covered here in detail.

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.
