Shared food and hospitality are central to Persian culture. While there’s some overlap with broader Middle Eastern food, Persian cuisine is rich and distinctive. The food of modern-day Iran was influenced by Silk Road travellers, the lands the vast Persian empire encompassed (including Egypt, Turkey and Pakistan), and a wealth of local produce such as saffron, barberries, pistachio and rose. Rice, grilled meat and seafood, salad, herbs, vegetables, fresh cheese, yoghurt and aromatic spices come together to create a deliciously unique cuisine. I was blessed to travel to Iran for the saffron harvest with my dear friend Parya and we can’t wait to share the cuisine of her homeland with you.
