A few years ago my husband made me a beautiful Persian Love Cake for my birthday. It was a delicate cardamom chiffon sponge with a delicious fresh cream filling flavoured with rose water with candied rose petals and pistachios. It was incredible. I am unashamed to say that I ate pretty much the entire cake, bar one slice that he had, and I loved every mouthful.
Hello lovelies! Well…. I am so excited to share this news. My Little Persian Kitchen will be popping up to launch a Supper Club at Alderford Lake on two dates this Summer:
Saturday 23rd June
Saturday 11th August!
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’.
So in Ode to my honey rant above I have made this gorgeous Honey and Orange Blossom Syrup to douse my breakfast pancakes in. You’re welcome!
These little 6 ingredient granola bars are super easy to make and taste like they should be bad for you.
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!
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 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.
Happy Chinese New Year!
Chinese & Persian New Year have some similarities. Both are celebrated on a different day each year. Chinese New Year due to following the lunar calendar and Persian New Year marking the coming of Spring time.
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.
