After five years of overcoming obstacles, meticulous planning, and ten thousand miles of traveling the length and breadth of Iran—cooking with local cooks, visiting workshops, and developing recipes—Najmieh’s dream or returning to Iran after her exile 39 years ago has been realized with the creation of Cooking in Iran: Regional Recipes and Kitchen Secrets. Najmieh takes us with her on an extraordinary culinary journey. At every village and off-the-beaten-track community, Najmieh unearths traditional recipes and makes surprising new discoveries, giving us a glimpse along the way of the places where many of the ingredients for the recipes are grown. She treks through the fields and orchards of Iran, showing us saffron being picked in Khorasan and pomegranates in Yazd, dates harvested by the Persian Gulf, pistachios in Kerman, and tea and rice by the Caspian. With more than 250 recipes and 400 photographs, Cooking in Iran is packed with inspiring ideas and practical tips - everything you'll need for recreating these glorious dishes so that you can embark on a culinary journey of your own.
