An Ancient Persian Culinary Adventure

International Recipes


The Persian Empire was one of the greatest civilizations of the ancient world. As architecture, art and sciences evolved, so did cuisine and Persian cuisine became renowned throughout the region for its refined mixture of flavors and textures.

The recipes below, which I found in The British Museum Cookbook, are the sort of thing you can find in any modern Persian restaurant. So personally I don't know how ancient they really are. All I can say is that they are good.
