This so a continuation of the previous post. Persian food is fresh. Persian yogurt is used for a dip or salad dressing.
This is a table of pre-dinner snacks with Persian flatbread and yogurt for dipping, plus nuts and vegetables, sliced cold meats and ricotta cheese. "I want you to eat this while I cook the dinner, and at dinner, I want you all to eat like wolves."
Our hostess has visited The Persian community in Los Angeles, and said it was like being in Persia.
I hope you have peace in your lives as you guard your homes.
