Isn't that a lovely name for a Persian cooking blog? It's enough to make my mouth water, I tell you. And when I browse the recipes, I come undone. The dishes look so, so good! From the blog: I enjoy cooking for my family and love to show everyone how simple, healthy and delicious Persian food can be. I mostly use the same traditional recipes that I’ve learned from my late mother and it’s all done with a lot of love and care. I have been sharing Persian recipes since December of 2008, six months after the loss of my mother. This blog was created as a tribute to her amazing culinary prowess and to honor her loving memory.

Managed by one lady who teaches yoga and writes brilliantly, West of Persia is a cooking blog that is never boring. What makes this blog worth following is the fact that the recipes shown are simplified versions of the original. Bria's reason: In my dreams, I see rows and rows of gleaming cabinets and candy colored stand mixers, chef’s quality gas ranges, and plates of every color and size. The reality is much more utilitarian. Whatever doesn’t fit or work well must go. This is my roundabout way of saying that by default, I have to keep things simple. Which means the recipes should be accessible to pretty much anyone.
