Persian cooking is very suited to the contemporary style of eating. Many of the dishes are vegetarian, and the marriage of sweet and savoury, such as grains and pulses sweetened with fruit and spices, makes for delicious meals. This book showcases a selection of these dishes.

UK Kirkus Review »
Shaida is married to an Iranian and she lived in Persia for over 25 years, where she was taught to cook by her mother-in-law. Against a backdrop of anecdotes and quotations she presents a selection of highly fragrant individual recipes interwoven into a tapestry of history and legend. Persian cooking is often very delicate and never too spicy. It uses lots of fruit and nuts in combination with meat, poultry and fish and much emphasis is placed on attractive presentation. The photographs of dishes included here are all exquisite. A Glenfiddich Award winner. Highly recommended. (Kirkus UK)
