Sample web sites offering Persian recipes

Hi! I would like to get some of your Persian food recipes. I really love
your food, but I don't know anybody that could help me at this time, so
I'm trying this other way to see what I can get.
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:
(includes a section on Gilaki recipes in Farsi only; other recipes
are in English)
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.
