Having this blog has brought many blessing in my life in different forms and shapes. One of said blessing is a greater attention to all things relating to Persian cuisine and culture, two things for which my passion continuously growth stronger and deeper. The second thing is all the people that I have met along the way, and for that I feel very fortunate. As 2014 comes to an end I can’t help but think about all the events that have transcribed throughout the year. But before the year ends there is Shabeh Yalda, also known as Winter Solstice, which is the longest night of the year. I make a point of celebrating this day and post a related recipe.
