This week I have something unusual for you though very close to the heart of why I started this blog. My friend Sorayya is a video genius. And fortunately for us, she has begun video taping her grandmother cooking traditional Persian recipes. This blog really began as a way for me to connect food, traditional and family, and that is precisely what Sorayya is doing with her video project. The videos are short, accompanied by English translations and set to fantastic music. I hope you enjoy this particular video, give the recipe a try, and check out Sorayya’s stunning photography and videos on her website: Enjoy!

    It’s so cool to have video on your blog. Seeing the food being prepared adds another dimension to your blog and brings the food alive.

    Well done! Very inspiring!


    1. Thanks, Dad! Sorayya is a really talented videographer!
