Vegetarian Kotlet

I actually once made it with fake ground beef, the results were not bad at all. However, Read More

I could have not possibly written about Iranian winters spent under a Korsi and not mentioned one of the most beloved winter dishes Ab-goosht, which literally translated means meat water.  I have very fond memories of sitting under the Korsi and eating Ab-goosht while outside it snowed.  There are a few different ways in which this dish is spelled: Ab-goosht, Abgoosht, or Abgousht.

Koofteh Tabrizi

Last year one of my mom’s cousins, Nilou, told me that she was going to send me a few of her mother’s recipes for me to post on MPK. A few months back my cousin Cyrus came to the US from Switzerland for visit. He brought along an envelop from his mother and inside of it were copies of his grandmother’s recipes.

So here I was with a few new family recipes written in Farsi and unable to read them because my Farsi is not good enough to read calligraphy.  Since my mom is here now, I have taken the opportunity to have her read them for me. Read More
