Introduction to Lunches and Dinners in Iran

Lunches and dinners in Iran are virtually the same. Or at least they were for us. We ate all of our meals in restaurants and hotels, so the difference among our meals had more to do with the type of restaurant—traditional or more contemporary—than the time of day. I was always most excited about the traditional restaurants which offered more “home-style” cooking, the kinds of food a Persian grandmother might cook.

In the next few posts, I will walk you through a typical meal: soup, salads, bread, kebabs, rice, stews, drinks, and dessert. Following that, it you still aren't sated, I will give you two very special lunches and an extraordinary dinner with a very special young woman and her family.
