Author and photographer Atoosa Sepehr offers not just mouthwatering traditional Iranian recipes, but also her own sumptuous photographs of both her food and the people and landsapes of Iran. Born and brought up in Iran, Atoosa came to work in the UK in 2007, but she never left behind the wonderful flavours of her family and childhood. Cooking these dishes for her family and friends over here has given her the passion to share the authentic, home cooked Persian cuisine with an international readership.
The book contains traditional recipes handed down the generations, but converted to fit into Atoosa's busy life. They are delicious and easy to prepare, using ingredients you can get in any supermarket. 'Every time I cook a Persian dish, I feel connected to this long and varied history, knowing that despite changing geographical and political boundaries, Persian cuisine has survived and thrived, bringing people together, sharing and celebrating.' AtoosaAtoosa's Persian Kitchen is an impressively practical recipe book, but it is a photographic celebration of an entire country, too.
