About the tour
Due to Persia’s geographical location and the many invasions and conquests of the mighty empire, today’s Persian cuisine is enriched with tastes and flavours of Azerbaijani, Kurdish, Caucasian, Turkish, Indian, Greek and Arabic gastronomy.
Persian food owes its diversity to The Silk Road, which ran through what is now Iran. Pomegranates, saffron and pistachios were indigenous to the region and exported. In return, traders brought in, rice from India and China, tomatoes from the Ottoman Empire, turmeric from India, yogurt and feta from Greece, and lamb from the Arabs.
Persian cuisine is extremely rich in ingredients, and the common use of fresh herbs and spices has made it perfectly balanced and pleasant for every taste.
Iranians pride themselves on their skill in preparation of rice, slow cooked lamb stews, saffron chicken, fresh herbs, eggplants and a generous amount of barberries, cardamom and rose water enhanced desserts.
Dried fruits and walnuts are used in many dishes. The traditional condiments are salt, black pepper, sumac, and especially saffron.
Black tea is the national beverage, and is drunk after food is eaten. It is also offered to guests as a gesture of welcome, often accompanied by fruit preserves.
