Persian Cooking - A Table of Exotic Delights


by Nesta Ramazani, University of Virginia Press. Hard to find in hardback. Third 1983 hardback printing of the 1974 English language edition. No DJ (as issued?). An often-praised cookbook on Iranian cuisine. The author and her husband are Iranians, but spent 16 years in Charlottesville, VA, where she was inspired to write this book about the cooking of their homeland.

From The Midwest Book Review: "Nesta Ramazani's Persian Cooking: A Table Of Exotic Delights offers nutritious, economical, and delicious recipes for appetizers, soups, stuffed vegetables, Persian souffles, yogurt dishes, salads, stewed meats, game birds, brad, pastries, puddings, sherbets, pickles, and more. From Mint and Parsley Soup with Green Plums, Stuffed Grape Leaves, Tomato Rice with Lamb, and Duckling in Pomegranate-Walnut Sauce, to Yogurt with Eggplant and Meatballs, Liver and Kidney Casserole, Pheasant with Cream, Chick-Pea Flower Cookies, and Pickled Cherry Tomatoes, Persian Cooking is a welcome and enthusiastically recommended addition to any ethnic and multicultural cookbook collection."
