Learn how to prepare a gorgeous springtime meal bursting with seasonal produce, authentic Persian flavors, and delicate spices with Louisa Shafia, chef and author of the highly acclaimed Lucid Food: Cooking for an Eco-Conscious Life and just-released The New Persian Kitchen (both from Ten Speed Press). Persian cooking has a history that stretches back over 2,500 years, and many ingredients used in the very beginning are still found in modern-day Iranian pantries. Shaped by Iran’s central position on the Silk Road, Persian dishes contain familiar hints of Indian, Chinese, Arabic, and Eastern European cooking, yet with a completely unique character. Taste Louisa’s fresh and healthy Persian-inspired recipes while learning about this ancient cuisine.
On the Menu: Radish, Rhubarb, and Strawberry Salad; Persian-Gulf-Style Spicy Tamarind Fish Stew; Sweet Rice with Carrots and Nuts; Yogurt with Beets and Mint; Sweet Tea with Dried Lime.
