“A reason to celebrate . . . a fascinating culinary excursion.” —The New York Times

Though the countries in the Persian culinary region are home to diverse religions, cultures, languages, and politics, they are linked by beguiling food traditions and a love for the fresh and the tart. Color and spark come from ripe red pomegranates, golden saffron threads, and the fresh herbs served at every meal. Grilled kebabs, barbari breads, pilafs, and brightly colored condiments are everyday fare, as are rich soup-stews called ash and alluring sweets like rose water pudding and date-nut halvah.

Our ambassador to this tasty world is the incomparable Naomi Duguid, who for more than 20 years has been bringing us exceptional recipes and mesmerizing tales from regions seemingly beyond our reach. More than 125 recipes, framed with stories and photographs of people and places, introduce us to a culinary paradise where ancient legends and ruins rub shoulders with new beginnings—where a wealth of history and culinary traditions makes it a compelling place to read about for cooks and travelers and for anyone hankering to experience the food of a wider world.

Product description

From the kitchens of Persian families to your dining table, with The Enchantingly Easy Persian Cookbook you’ll enjoy easy-to-follow recipes that achieve the vibrant flavors of authentic Persian cuisine.

Yogurt, eggplant, lamb kebabs, saffron rice―if you have ever dined in a Persian restaurant then you know how rich, tantalizing, and satisfying Persian cuisine is. Yet many assume that making favorites, like Pomegranate and Walnut Stew or Saffron Syrup Cake, is too difficult to do at home.

Shadi HasanzadeNemati grew up in the kitchen of her Persian mother and can still remember being mesmerized by the sweet aromas of saffron and cinnamon. Inspired by her family’s heirloom recipes, Shadi has created a collection of simple, straightforward takes on authentic Persian favorites that are accessible enough for beginners, yet still fun for more seasoned cooks.

The Enchantingly Easy Persian Cookbook brings the savory comforts and mystical essence of Persian home cooking to your dining table. The step-by-step instructions in this Persian cookbook make it easier than ever to create classic Persian mainstays in your own home.

In this uniquely simple Persian cookbook, you’ll find:

  • 100 recipes specifically designed to make Persian cooking fun and stress-free for beginners

  • A handy how-to guide for preparing basic Persian ingredients―such as de-seeding pomegranates, making saffron-water, drying limes, and storing fresh herbs

  • Practical grocery shopping recommendations for Persian pantry staples like cardamom and sumac, plus useful photos for identifying unique ingredients such as ghee and clotted cream

  • Helpful labels that indicate each recipe’s level of difficulty, plus “worth the wait” labels for dishes that require more time

  • Tried-and-true tips and tricks to make Persian cooking easier and more successful

  • Memory sidebars that accompany especially treasured recipes, describing Shadi’s most cherished recollection connected to that dish

With the ease and simplicity of The Enchantingly Easy Persian Cookbook you’ll have more fun (and less stress) as you find the magic in new Persian fare, and rediscover the enchantment of recipes you already love.

Grated Raw Beets
Grated Raw Beets
A digit of recipes in the cookbook I used calls for this as an ingredient. They're pretty easy to grate by hand, but likely to stain your skin if you don't wash up right away. I used the provisions processor the last time, but had this out on the table and decided just to use it since it was there and I only needed to grate one. Find the recipe on my food blog here:
