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.
We’ve all done it. Situations vary but we all have eaten alone.
The stereotype is that it can be depressing or seem gluttonous. Pictures come up of bad breakups or sitting in sweats watching Netflix or spending a holiday alone.
Perhaps the idea seems so lowly because so many of us associate eating with socializing – so how could one possibly have fun being alone with their meal?
