Week 22 . . . IRAN!

Sorry for the late announcement folks! And look for my Puerto Rico post tomorrow!

This week, Elra of Elra's Cooking assisted me in selecting the theme country. She actually provided me with a great list and we will visit them all, but first, ladies and gentlemen, we are going to Iran, where we will eat without preconditions (I couldn't help myself)!

Elra tells us that this cuisine is "truly exotic with using a lot of fragrant spices, flowers, fruits, and fresh herbs."

I'm excited about this one and the others Elra has in store for us!

Happy Travels,

What an exciting pick! I have an Iranian bread from a book of mine that I've been wanting to try :)

OMG, Thank you so much...Lauren!
This country has many delicious dishes and they are quite unique and exotic as well. I can't wait to cook something with dried rose petal, or pomegranate!
