Pardiz: A Persian Food Journey

This is a personal journey as much as a food journey. The work has the feel of a travelog but might delve too close to coffee-table book territory for readers seeking a more traditional cookbook. That being said, the recipes are simple and easy to follow, with most of the ingredients readily accessible, and average cooks can easily find a new flavor to tease the palate.
