At a time of heated relations between Iran and the West, Persian food is bridging cultural divides. And no season is more mouthwatering for this colorful, rich cuisine than spring when Iran’s million-strong U.S. diaspora celebrates Nowruz, or Persian New Year. A secular holiday blending rituals, poetry, food and fellowship, the festive tables spread for Nowruz have taken on profound significance for Iranians in the U.S. We explore the flavors and traditions of Iran’s 4,000 year-old cuisine, and find out more about Iran’s most important holiday.
