Are you planning to travel to Iran or have you already been there and would you like to taste again something you ate there ?Here is explained what Iranians like to eat and how to prepare that delicious Persian food the easy way. Surprise yourself and your friends or family with dishes you will surely appreciate !The word Iran isnt very popular in the world. It makes people think about politics, about war and about religion. Maybe thats why most of the pleasant and beautifull aspects of Iranian culture are said to be PERSIAN.Persian ancient history, Persian culture, Persian poetry, Persian music, Persian rugs...Unfortunately few people know what Persian CUISINE is like, which is a pity because Iranian food is delicious. Its flavors are Middle Eastern but at the same time very recognizable for Westeners. Dishes are only mildly spiced and always well balanced. Anyone who has been so lucky to eat Persian food agrees with me. Businessmen that visited the country, travellers that made a tour to visit the ancient cities of Iran, gourmets that live in big Western cities and of course people like me.Lets introduce myself. I have been married to an Iranian citizen for the last twenty years now. We live in Italy so most of the time I cook Italian, but once or twice a week we eat Persian food too. My husband wouldnt resist any longer without it and neither do his felllow citizens living abroad. At first he would prepare it for me, but over time I got to learn how to prepare most dishes myself. I copied and improved my husbands cooking techniques and those of his Iranian friends. Whenever I was on a visit in Iran I ate in the best restaurants of the country, I asked around a lot and of course I observed my mother in law who is an excellent cook.Over time we have become quite famous for our Persian stews and rice dishes among our Italian friends. They often ask us to invite them because they long for an Iranian stew. Considering that Italians adore their own cuisine that sure is striking. If they think Iranian food is a real treat, then it must be true !Thats why you should read this book. This is a collection of my best Persian recipes. The ones all Iranians eat frequently, the ones they will offer to their guests and that can be ordered in hotels and restaurants all over Iran.They are not difficult to prepare at all so check it out !It will convince you that Persian cuisine has a lot to offer to those who like good food and new flavors.Good Luck !
