Taste of Persia : a cook's travels through Armenia, Azerbaijan, Georgia, Iran, and KurdistanTaste of Persia : a cook's travels through Armenia, Azerbaijan, Georgia, Iran, and Kurdistan by Naomi Duguid

"Grilled kebabs, barbari breads, pilafs, and brightly colored condiments are everyday fare, as are rich soup-stews called ash and alluring sweets like rose water pudding and date-nut halvah. Our ambassador to this tasty world is the incomparable Naomi Duguid, who for more than 20 years has been bringing us exceptional recipes and mesmerizing tales from regions seemingly beyond our reach." -- from Amazon.com
