Well, that's a tall order! Perhaps you could narrow down your appreciation to a more specific request? A quick search on the web turns up 7,210 links for "Persian food recipes." Here are a few to get you started:

-- http://persia.org/Recipes/recipes.html
-- http://ozone.ess.sunysb.edu/docs/Food.shtml
-- http://www.iranonline.com/iranhall/recipe/ (includes a section on Gilaki recipes in Farsi only; other recipes are in English)
-- http://www.farsinet.com/farsieats/recipes/

If you don't have access to a middle eastern store for special food items, try http://www.sadaf.com to shop online. They have recipes too, and even a recipe contest.

If you're really serious, for the price of a restaurant meal you could invest in one of the cookbooks featured in the right-hand column of the food section here. It's well worth it; the gorgeous photos themselves are good enough to eat. Just follow the links to buy the books online, and do your bit to support some poor dot-commer who will be starving tomorrow.

Or you can check in here and sooner or later (when I stop working, cooking, partying, sulking, or dieting for long enough to write something) you might find something really unusual.
