Persian Ingredients on NPR’s Cook Your Cupboard!

by Louisa on September 2, 2013

Today on NPR’s Cook Your Cupboard feature, you can hear me give cooking advice to a stumped Morning Edition listener who has some mysterious ingredients in her kitchen, including pomegranate molasses, chickpea flour, and rose water (oh, and canned chop suey vegetables, which are definitely NOT Persian). I give some quick outlines for dishes that you can make using these ingredients. If you want the full recipes, they’re in The New Persian Kitchen. Enjoy the interview and recipes!

Hello Ms. Shafia! I am the woman you spoke with during this fantastic interview. I am now the proud owner of The New Persian Kitchen and love it! I’ve made several recipes in it and have enjoyed them all. Thanks for a great book and a very fun radio experience :)
