Nestled on a mountain roadside on the C77 in Valenciana en route to Guadalest (which can only be described as a bare knuckle car drive if you are of the nervous disposition like me) was this hidden gem of a restaurant ‘El Rui Guadalest’.

A Lost Week Away

Having been together for just over a year, my then boyfriend and I travelled to Rome for my 30th birthday. It was such a cool experience and one that always makes me smile when I think about it. We had very little money and were just starting out in our relationship together. This was a lovely surprise birthday trip.

I learned to make shortbread at ‘Brownies’. I must have been around 8 years old and the first time I made them I was proud as punch. Not too dissimilar from now really!

Lamb & Apple Khoresht Recipe – A Big Bowl of Persian Stew

The beauty of this dish specifically is that it is so versatile. For my vegetarian and vegan friends and followers you can omit the meat and switch the vegetables round to your liking. Just keep the core spicing and water content the same and you cant go far wrong.

Kuku Sabzi Recipe – My little Persian Green Omelet

Kuku is a type of omelet similar to an Italian Fritata and filled with fresh chopped herbs. traditionally is was cooked over hot coals but now a days an oven is just fine! Ordinarily Kuku is served as a side dish or starter with salad, yoghurt and bread. They are delicious hot or cold and great for picnics.

My little Persian Pancakes

We love pancakes here at My Little Persian Kitchen! But who doesn’t? They are such a nostalgic treat and so versatile too. Sweet or savoury, scotch, crepes or buttermilk, I like them all.
