Iranian cuisine has a history steeped in herbs and spices, which plays a huge role in making it one of the most celebrated in the world. This meal starts with the Iranian version of a frittata - cauliflower kuku, served with beetroot borani topped with toasted walnuts. Our main features a succulent chicken and orange stew (known as khoresht) subtly spiced with cinnamon, green cardamon and saffron. On the side we’ve got sabzi polow, rice cooked with butter and herbs using a classic technique so that the base - a much fought-over delicacy called ‘tahdeeg’ - becomes crisp while the top steams.

Delicious! The recipes are so well conceived and written; these meals are as fun to prepare as they are to eat.

Wow- this looks like an incredible feast! Thanks for your lovely feedback and we love the colourful plates, thanks for sharing and happy spicing!


The cauliflower starter was not particularly spiced and tasted much like a cauliflower omelette. This was marginally improved by the addition of the beetroot borani. The main chicken dish again was lacking flavour, however we enjoyed the pickles which were delicious

Thanks for your feedback, the spices used in Persian cooking are quite subtle to enhance the flavours of the other ingredients rather than overpower, so apologies if it didn't seem spiced enough this time! We're happy to hear that you really enjoyed the pickles and if you ever want advice about specific recipes we'll be more than happy to help!


We thought this was really delicious - all your boxes are good, but I am not always inspired to buy one again. The flavours were subtle and interesting, and I ordered another of these as soon as I could. There is no way I could have put all these spices together - thank you for all your effort.
