From a Persian Kitchen

Authentic recipes and fabulous flavours from Iran

By Atoosa Sepehr

  • E-Book
  • £P.O.R.

This is a book that celebrates the visual culture of Iran and its food - so that even before cooking the recipes you can almost taste and smell them from the pictures.

Author and photographer Atoosa Sepehr offers not just mouthwatering traditional Iranian recipes, but also her own sumptuous photographs of both her food and the people and landsapes of Iran.

Born and brought up in Iran, Atoosa came to work in the UK in 2007, but she never left behind the wonderful flavours of her family and childhood. Cooking these dishes for her family and friends over here has given her the passion to share the authentic, home cooked Persian cuisine with an international readership. The book contains traditional recipes handed down the generations, but converted to fit into Atoosa's busy life. They are delicious and easy to prepare, using ingredients you can get in any supermarket.

'Every time I cook a Persian dish, I feel connected to this long and varied history, knowing that despite changing geographical and political boundaries, Persian cuisine has survived and thrived, bringing people together, sharing and celebrating.' Atoosa

Atoosa's Persian Kitchen is an impressively practical recipe book, but it is a photographic celebration of an entire country, too.

Biographical Notes

Atoosa was born in the Iranian city of Shiraz in 1977. She grew up in Iran and studied at Azad University of Tabriz. Having completed her degree in 2000, she moved to Tehran where she worked as a computer programmer for Iritec Company. In 2001, she moved to London to learn English, and also worked as a web designer. She returned to Iran in 2003 to work in the stock market in Tehran in order to learn about business processes before studying for an MBA, which she completed in 2005.

Atoosa was inspired to start her own company in the Import and Export field and became the Iranian representative for one of the biggest Iranian steel companies in London. This led to her moving back to London in 2007. She decided to devote more time to her passions of photography and food. She became Food Editor of Classic Magazine, and then decided to fulfil her lifetime ambition to create a Persian cookbook, which has allowed her to focus more on her creativity, and love of food, art and photography.

Sam Gates

Packed with recipes for deliciously unpretentious, modern rustic food, The Tin and Traybake Cookbook is for everyone who loves to cook and eat beautiful food. Baking tins usually see daylight only when we're making cakes or the Sunday roast. But with a little imagination, these kitchen stalwarts can do so much more. Did you know that the best chocolate brownie tin is also a perfect fit for Sweetly spiced roast chicken with chorizo or Blackberry vodka marshmallows? That a simple loaf tin can make a mean Berry ripple ice cream and towering Spicy sausage and fennel lasagnes, as well as heartbreakingly tasty bread? Or that a classic tray bake tin is the ideal size for an Oven baked chicken and roast garlic risotto and a Sweet potato and mustard gratin as well as Almond and blueberry bars?By making better use of what's already in our kitchens, we can create more space in our homes and in our lives to enjoy what we eat.

'Food is not what you cook, but what you make others taste.'Joel Serra Bevin was born in New Zealand and grew up in Tasmania. Inspired by his Catalan great-grandfather, Papa Serra, Joel moved to Barcelona where he has immersed himself in his much-loved Spanish food and cooking. Joel brings a vibrant, fresh approach to traditional Spanish dishes. He is obsessed with new flavour combinations, unusual preparations and loves to create magic for whoever joins him around the table.These eighty recipes offer both a beginner's guide to eating and drinking like a local in Barcelona and Spain, with fresh takes on Spanish favourites such as Fideua with Squid Ink, Allioli, Pulpo Gallego and Leche Merengada, as well as plenty of inspiration for those looking to experiment.While not stinting on classic dishes for those new to Spanish food, Joel also reinvents Catalan classics such as Membrillo-Roasted Pumpkin with Almond Cream, and Green Gazpacho with Sumac Yogurt. As Joel says, 'Food always tastes better when shared, so pull up a seat and join the feast.'
