Iranian Cuisine with Elahe
“In Iran I used to wake up to the smell of my grandmother’s cooking and its beautiful aromas as she added the ingredients in the early mornings. Not being able to communicate was one of the biggest barriers I faced when I arrived to the UK. I was introduced to Jess through my dear daughter and since then, I became very engaged and eager to dedicate myself to Migrateful. It has helped me to improve my confidence and self-esteem and to believe in my capabilities. I am cooking with love and passion again like in the old days. I would like to thank Migrateful indeed for offering me this great opportunity to make friends, use my talents and to succeed.
It is hard not to love Iranian food. Typical Iranian main dishes are combinations of rice with meat (such as lamb, chicken, or fish), vegetables (such as onions and various herbs), and nuts. Fresh green herbs are frequently used, along with fruits such as plums, pomegranate, quince, prunes, apricots, and raisins. Characteristic Iranian flavourings such as saffron, dried lime, cinnamon, and parsley are mixed and used in some special dishes.
