The Book

Iran Awakening
By Shirin Ebadi

The Menu


Sabzi Khordan
Adas Polo
Salad shirazi
Fruit and Tea


 Sabzi Khordan can be served as an appetizer in a restaurant but is usually served along with all of the dishes which are all placed on the table at the same time.

 Usually dessert in Iran is fruit, not sweet items. You can serve a large platter of grapes, nectarines, melon slices and red and white cherries.

 Before the meal begins you say "Nooshe Jan" which means bon appetite.
