9781780768014: From a Persian Kitchen: Fresh Discoveries in Iranian Cooking

The food of Iran is a riot of tastes and aromas, and is one of the great - but least known - cuisines of the world. With an emphasis on the use of seasonal ingredients, fresh herbs and fragrant spices, Jila Dana-Haeri presents a unique guide to quintessential Persian cooking. The varieties of beautiful jeweled rice dishes, hearty winter dishes and crisp summer salads, showcase the diversity of Iranian regional cooking, from the sweet and sour flavors of the Northern Caspian Coast to the spicy and aromatic tastes of the South and the Persian Gulf. The complimentary mix of flavors - the fresh tartness of pomegranate seeds and the subtle perfume of saffron, tarragon, dill and fenugreek - create an array of mouth-watering recipes that are now accessible to cooks of all levels. This lavishly-illustrated cookbook offers an enticing selection of recipes for any occasion. Including over 100 recipes such as Apple Khoresh, Beetroot Pahti and Biryani, this will be essential for all interested in expanding their cultural and culinary horizons.

Review:

"Iran and its food are ripe for rediscovery... From a Persian Kitchen by Jila Dana-Haeri, which captures the fresh herbs, fragrant spices, and beautiful rice dishes of a big country running from the Caspian coast to the Persian Gulf, is a good place to start. Mouthwatering recipes to cook at home..."

Book Description I.B.Tauris Co. Ltd., United Kingdom, 2014. Hardback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. The food of Iran is a riot of tastes and aromas, and is one of the great - but least known - cuisines of the world. With an emphasis on the use of seasonal ingredients, fresh herbs and fragrant spices, Jila Dana-Haeri here presents a unique guide to quintessential Persian cooking. The variety of beautiful, jewelled rice dishes, hearty winter dishes and crisp summer salads showcases the diversity of Iranian regional cooking, from the sweet and sour flavours of the northern Caspian coast to the spicy and aromatic tastes of the south and the Persian Gulf. The complementary mix of flavours - from the fresh tartness of pomegranate seeds to the subtle perfume of saffron, tarragon, dill and fenugreek - makes for an array of mouth-watering recipes that are now, thanks to Dana-Haeri s contribution, accessible to cooks of all levels.

This beautifully illustrated cookbook offers an enticing selection of recipes for any occasion, be it a quick supper, lavish dinner party, summer picnic or winter feast. Featuring stunning photography and introductions to Iranian cuisine and culture, From a Persian Kitchen will be essential for all interested in expanding their cultural and culinary horizons.
