    This book features a good variety of Persian recipes in a clear and easy to follow layout. I recommend it for both beginners to Persian cooking and advanced cooks.

    My initial impressions of this cookbook are very positive. The author, Shadi HasanzedeNemati, is a food blogger who wanted to create a cookbook with easy everyday Persian dishes rather than the intricate dishes found in other Persian cookbooks. There is one full page photo for each section of the book (e.g., Soups and Ash, Chicken, Meat & Fish, etc.). I would have liked to have seen more photos of the individual recipes; perhaps they can be found on her blog. The book itself is a pleasure to hold My initial impressions of this cookbook are very positive.

I would have liked to have seen more photos of the individual recipes; perhaps they can be found on her blog. The book itself is a pleasure to hold and view. It's a high quality paperback with a satiny cover (like all books from this publisher). Each recipe takes up two facing pages with the servings made, prep time, cook time, and ingredients list on the left. There is no calorie information. Many of the ingredients are readily available, as this is everyday Persian. There are a couple of more exotic ingredients such as Pomegranate molasses, but this should be available at a local international grocery store. If not, I found it on Amazon. I also appreciate that there are some vegetarian substitutions such as using mushrooms rather than chicken thighs (lower calorie too). I will update this review after I have made some recipes. Since I'm getting a bumper crop of zucchini this summer, I plan to start with Zucchini Stew (pages 90–91). I received a free copy of this book from the publisher.

    This is a fun cookbook. My cooking background is Greek, but I prefer the flavors and scents of the Middle and Near East. I just made the Carrots and Meat Stew, which turned out well. Although as a cook, I am an adapter. Some of these recipes use ingredients that are difficult to obtain. Yes, Amazon, has the tart yellow dried Persian prunes, but they were very expensive and you wonder how long they'd been on the shelf.

So i adapted and used our nice, fresh California dried prunes, as well as some fresh cranberries I keep in the freezer, to add the tartness. While not as gorgeous as yellow fruit, the stew tastes wonderful. Inititally, I'm following the steps in order, but I suspect in future I'll be making some shortcuts that won't affect flavor. But overall, this is a nice collection of recipes and I look forward to making many more.

    A solid cookbook, with a good mix of "staples" and more obscure regional dishes. As is typical with Persian cuisine, at least in my experience, some of the recipes here for classic dishes are different than others I've seen ("everybody's grandma does it a little differently..."). There aren't a lot of pictures, but that doesn't bother me. Accessing some of the ingredients will require people to hit the internet (unless they live somewhere with good Mideastern markets).

    I'm giving this a four only because I haven't had a chance to fully explore the recipes yet. I suspect it might be a five-star book, but for cookbooks, I reserve that until I've cooked about ten recipes. In the meantime, the writing is great, and the author gives very thorough information about a cuisine that may not be familiar to many of her readers.

    This is really a good book! The stories are great, the recipes look delicious but there is a draw back. There are some ingredients that my local grocery store does not have, so I have had to use something else, which I am sure changes the flavor. The pictures are just so pretty.

Publisher's Description: (From Amazon) From the kitchens of Persian families to your dining table, with The Enchantingly Easy Persian Cookbook you’ll enjoy easy-to-follow recipes that achieve the vibrant flavors of authentic Persian cuisine. Yogurt, eggplant, lamb kebabs, saffron rice―if you have ever dined in a Persian restaurant then you know how rich, tantalizing, and satisfying Persian cuisine is.

My Review: Youwill need some specialized spices and ingredients for some of these recipes, but they are readily available on the internet or larger cities have Middle Eastern Specialty shops. I was lucky to have most required spices on hand as I enjoy cooking exotic foods from Asia, Middle East and South America. Truth told though I miss read the title and was expecting a book on Parisian Cooking, of which I have done very little and only have two cookbooks on hand, when I ordered this cookbook. Surprised is an understatement of how I felt when I opened the package. I though okay it here, look it over and see what's new. Turn out to be the best mistake I had made in a while. The cover was still able to make my mouth water and as I opened it and began to read and looked over the recipes I found myself mentally cataloguing what ingredients I had on hand to prepare a couple of the dishes. It truly is easy to understand and prepare these dishes. Most are simple, but there are a couple that are detail oriented and take a little time. Even those that take a while are passive cooking time that allow you to do other things, such as read your "The Enchantingly Easy Persian Cookbook" to enjoy the short anecdotes and memories shared within its covers. Such was the case when the chicken and dumplings I had planned for dinner yesterday soon became Saffron Chicken (Pg 100). After all it was the picture of this dish on the cover that made me want this cookbook in the firt place. I had to know what the dish was and how it was made. Moslty I just wanted to know how it tasted. I can tell you now it was delicious, easy to make and enjoyed by everyone. Whether you have eaten Persian dishes before or just curious, pick up a copy of "The Enchantingly Easy Persian Cookbook" today and see for yourself how good these recipes are. I have a couple already earmarked to try over the next few weeks. My Rating for "The Enchantingly Easy Persian Cookbook" is 4.75 out of 5 Stars. Amazon link: https://www.amazon.com/dp/1623157633/...

    This really does have enchantingly easy Persian recipes - and the writer's reminiscences and comments about the recipes make it very readable from cover to cover. Now off to make use of my bottle of pomegranate molasses!

    Very Nice I was married to a Persian man from Isfahan for five years. He was a Fabulous cook and taught me how to cook his delicate, wonderful food. This cookbook is one of the best ones I've seen that corresponds closely to what I learned. The only difference is my husband didn't cook with cinnamon, except occasionally. Nor did we use much saffron, which may have been due to the cost as we were students. We also didn't use a tortilla on the bottom of rice but used thinly sliced potatoes or just Very Nice I was married to a Persian man from Isfahan for five years. He was a Fabulous cook and taught me how to cook his delicate, wonderful food. This cookbook is one of the best ones I've seen that corresponds closely to what I learned. The only difference is my husband didn't cook with cinnamon, except occasionally. Nor did we use much saffron, which may have been due to the cost as we were students. We also didn't use a tortilla on the bottom of rice but used thinly sliced potatoes or just left the rice on the bottom of the pan for tahdig, which gives a crunchy rice. Everybody wants the rice from the bottom of the pan! We did have a massive crowd for dinner every night, or we were at his friends houses with a huge group of people. Very fun. The Persians are huge with gatherings of family and friends. I'm thrilled to see the good kooku and drink recipes, as I didn't learn as much as I would have liked. Anyway, this is a wonderful book. The beet with yogurt is superb.
