In an attempt to feel the joys of spring despite this cold damp weather we are having I have had a few evenings of playing around with some ingredients in my little Persian kitchen. This lovely little orange blossom & cardamom cake is the result.
Sunday’s, in my humble opinion, should forever be a day of rest! I get very grumpy if I have to leave the house before midday on a Sunday or have to change out of my pyjama’s pre 10am! Thank goodness the postman doesn’t work on Sunday’s!
Iranians enjoy picked foods with most stews/rice dishes and kabab. You will find some wonderous and often unusual pickled foods in Iran from garlic to walnuts & even fruits like melon. I have never had pickled melon and not sure I want to but I absolutely love pickled garlic.
Easter has arrived and what better way to spend it than eating chocolate cake with family.
Lubia polo is my best friends favourite Iranian dish & I always cook it for her when she comes to stay with us as a treat….
I make cakes. A lot of cakes. Too often we throw cakes away that I have made as we haven’t managed to eat them. But, it is an unequivocal love for me, making cakes, pastries & desserts of any description really.
The weekend started like this….
Me: “Kasper, you could help mummy make some cakes this morning if you like?”
Kasper: “Hmmm I could, but I’m not gonna!”
