Introduction to the Fourth Set of Snippets: Food in Iran

Now is the time to tell you about the food. Oh my goodness, it was just great. I’ll start with Breakfasts and quickly move into Lunches and Dinners which I divide into Soups, Salads, Bread, Kebabs, Rice, Stews, Drinks, and Desserts. And then two special lunches and one very very special dinner with an amazing young woman and her family.

Of course, I can’t leave out the Tea and Sweet breaks that happened twice every day. They were important in several ways: they gave us the chance to relax and sit down, to have a spot of reviving tea, and most of all the chance to visit a bathroom which Carolyn, our Scotswoman and tour leader, called the loo.
