My Little Persian Kitchen’s Window Cookies – Nan e Panjerehi

My grandmother was a wonderful women. She had a huge heart and amazing spirit. She loved to cook and her cooking was incredible!

My Little Persian Kitchen’s Lemon & Yoghurt cake

This one is a request from one of my followers. It is a delicious dense, moist cake with a lovely delicate flavour and super easy to make. I haven’t made it in ages and wanted a fresher picture than the one I posted on instagram months ago so I decided to make it again this morning before work as I was woken early by birdsong…literally!

My Little Persian Kitchen Orange Blossom Cake

Cardamom & Pistachio Truffles

My husband and I are both runners. Have I mentioned this before? Maybe not. Well, he likes to run in the evening and I like to run in the morning, as by 7pm it is a lesser known fact that I turn into a sloth and cannot condone any exercise at all. I prefer to use this time to eat really good food or chocolate! Judge me if you will. I judge me. I still do it….

The gift of a rose – Sohan

Rose is one of the main flavours of Persian cooking along with Turmeric, Saffron, Pomegranate and Cardamon. Pull up a chair at any Iranian restaurant and you’ll be sure to find something flavoured with Rose on the menu. ….
