Herbs are concentrated forms of flavor and nutrition. So many Persian dishes are replete with fresh herbs, and no Persian meal is complete without a dish of sabzi khordan, or edible herbs. The Persian New Year Narooz menu always includes dishes with herbs to represent new life. In this class, we’ll explore a variety of delicious dishes that use lots of herbs, including basil, parsley, mint, cilantro, tarragon, watercress, dill and chives. We’ll also explore some more exotic ingredients, such as barberries, saffron, fresh and dried fenugreek, and tobiko.
