Persian Cooking

I first discovered Persian food when I lived in Los Angeles in the ’90s, working as a line cook. While I had previously thought, naïvely, that there was something somewhat novel and Californian about using fruit in savory dishes, here was an Old World cuisine that offered up blushing rice with sour cherries (albalu polow) and chicken stewed with pomegranate and walnuts (fesenjan).

two small errors

As "uh" pointed out, we do not use the expression the way this lady was told. Noon zireh kabob is the endearing term used for the sister of one's wife and not anyone else.

Also Angoosht doesn't have split chick peas in it.

But the rest of the article was so precise and the description of Persian food so mouthwatering that one can easily get over those small mistakes.



how exactly would you say

how exactly would you say "you are the bread beneath my kabab".
