2017, Regional/Cultural Cookbooks, Gold Winner

Though home to diverse religions, cultures, languages, and politics, the Persian culinary region is linked by beguiling food traditions. Grilled kebabs, barbari breads, pilafs, and brightly colored condiments are everyday fare, as are rich soup-stews and alluring sweets like date-nut halvah. More than 125 recipes, framed with stories and photographs of people and places, introduce us to a culinary paradise where ancient legends and ruins rub shoulders with new beginnings. Winner of a 2017 James Beard Award and IACP Award, Taste of Persia is a must-read for anyone hankering to experience the food of a wider world.
