I’m always seeking out recipe contributions from other travelers, bloggers, innkeepers, etc. It never dawned on me that I actually have a few recipes worth sharing. Sometimes it takes me a while to catch up with myself. Does that ever happen to you?
I believe food is universal. Aside from the fact that we all have to eat in order to sustain life, food brings everyone together. Whether it be breakfast for 12 at a certain B&B I know, or a family dinner, or a holiday brunch or exploring the culinary culture of another country, food is at the heart of the occasion. Let’s face it, it’s all about the food (and chocolate) (and pastry). Ever notice that every time someone hosts a party, everyone crowds in to the kitchen to linger? Why is that?
Abi was born and raised in Persia (a.k.a Iran) and throughout his childhood and early adult years he was surrounded by wonderful cooks who spent hours of time each day going to the market, to buy the freshest ingredients, and preparing family meals.
I met Abi just 6 months after he arrived in the U.S. some 35+ years ago. One look at me and it was all over for him. Ha! Ha! Just kidding, kind of. We met on a Sunday, went out the following Tuesday and we’ve been together ever since. Two stubborn peas in a pod, that’s us.
Anyway, over the years he has taught me a thing or two about Persian cooking and I figure it’s about time I start to share some of this great food with you. So here you go… simple and delicious, Persian Kabobs.
Just tried your recipe. Didn’t have turmeric but it still turned out well.

Thanks, Mike. It’s really easy and quite good!
That always happens in my kitchen as well, no matter how small. I’m sure it has nothing to do with food – ha!
Anyway, as it turns out, I don’t know what to cook for dinner tomorrow but this looks so delicious (and easy), I think I’ll try it. Thanks for linking up this week, Patti!

That looks delicious and like something I might even be able to make myself! I haven’t had much experience with Persian food, but now I’m interested in learning more.
