The Persian Empire was focussed in the country now known as Iran (in the Middle East of Asia), as well as across some of Iran’s neighbouring countries. Persian cuisine holds its roots in this ancient culture and is simply delicious.
Persian meals use beautifully fragrant, rather than hot, spices. Herbs and luxury ingredients such as saffron are often incorporated. Sweet and tangy flavours from components such as fruits and dried limes give Persian cuisine its balanced, yet prominent signature palate.
