Born in Isfahan, a province in central Iran, Nasim Alikhani was a passionate cook from childhood, spending the first years of her life in the kitchen alongside her mother. So, when she departed after the revolution, it was by recreating the dishes of her youth that she was able to feel connected to her home. After decades of cooking for friends and family, at the age of fifty-nine, she opened her restaurant Sofreh in Brooklyn, to share the food and warm culture of her native Iran with a wider circle.

Now, in her first cookbook, Alikhani offers her readers what she has lovingly been providing for those who know her and who eat in her restaurant: the true tastes of Iran. Here is the timeless, soul-satisfying food of Persia, with its trademark bold herbs and spices, succulent, savory stews and stuffed meats, vast bounty of brightly pickled vegetables and fresh fruits, and much, much more.

Containing more than 120 recipes, Sofreh brings together traditional Iranian dishes and modern Sofreh favorites, such as Sour Cherry Rice, Roasted Cauliflower with Shallot Yogurt and Pistachios, Sour Chicken Stew, Rosewater and Cardamom Custard, and, of course, everything you need to create a true Iranian breakfast spread at home.

A joyous celebration of one of the world's greatest cuisines, this essential guide will delight home cooks everywhere.
