Koofteh– delightful Persian meatballs, seasoned with cumin and a host of other herbs & spices. Two fabulous dipping sauces will be served alongside; A homemade tzatziki sauce and a fabulous, traditional garlic sauce. Just DON’T ask for ketchup!
Cranberry & Almond-Topped Salmon – Lots of herbs and garlic combine with the berries and nuts to bring you a grand dish that looks like you really knocked yourself out. We won’t tell anyone how easy it is to prepare.
Persian Rice with Tahdig – a fabulous way to prepare rice. It’s seasoned with a generous amount of fresh herbs, then cooked in a way that leaves a crispy, caramelized layer of rice around the bottom of the pot before it’s inverted onto a serving platter. That glorious layer is called Tahdig, which literally translates to “bottom of the pot”
Herb Salad with Radishes & Cucumber – Crumbled Feta adds a soft texture, while lemon lends a brightness. A liberal dose of toasted walnuts provides a delightful crunch that brings the salad together.
We'll end the evening with a taste of one spectacular tasting date cake. Warm. Rich. Moist. It may not be Persian, but it will send your taste buds on a magic carpet ride.
