[book:The Saffron Tales: Recipes from the Persian Kitchen|28260529] is a lovely collection of Persian recipes, simple enough to be recreated at home with little fuss, and with some great photographs for how to make Persian Rice (a favorite of mine and my family's).

The flavours are traditional Iranian ones, and the recipe directions are clear and easy to follow. This is a cookbook for the home cook, who wants to try some new flavours without the intimidation of mastering a new cuisine or cooking style.

I especially liked:
- The many recipes with Pistachios!
- The painless recipes
- The bright photographs of both the food and sights from around Iran
