I’m proud of my Persian heritage…as well as the food that comes with!
I try and learn a little more about it every day, as I also do with my father’s European background. I’ve been to Iran, speak a little Farsi (Ye kami farsi baladam) and know some of Hafez’s beautiful poetry. What made me incredibly joyful this week was successfully cooking a classic khoresh – Ghormeh Sabzi.

I could eat Persian food anytime of year. I know I’m biased but truly, so many of my favorites are perfect to serve any season. But with the holidays coming up, Chicago really doing its best to chill me to the bone, and my missing my family yet getting so excited for the moments we’ll get to spend together, there are certain Persian meals that truly make me feel at home and warm me up, body and soul.
