Iran Journey 2015: Persian dinner in Rasht. Recipes.

The evening we returned back to Rasht from our journey to Bandar-e Anzali, a delicious surprise was waiting for us at home. Our friend Nima’s mother – aunt Soosan prepared an amazing dinner of local dishes. “The cuisine of Gilan province doesn’t contain a lot of meat. It’s mostly vegetable and fish,” says aunt Soosan as we sit around the table. There’s no way we can describe the taste of the dishes (blessed be the hands of aunt Soosan). But at least we can share the recipes here so that you can prepare them yourself.
Most of the recipes were provided by our friend Nima. All the photographs were taken by Nane. You can follow her blog – Photopatum.
