While working on my Japan travel blog, I got a strange tweet, “have you ever traveled to Iran ?”
Iran was never on top of my travel list for many obvious reasons , I am not planning discussing it here.
Married to a Persian, I discovered a world, shared by stories and amazing home cooking .
Next question was if I wish to travel there ?
As a traveler, my immediate answer was , yes send me links to explore.
After brief glance, I contacted optional companion , Andrew Zimmern and Josh Gates , as a big fan, I thought going together will be an amazing journey…
If you follow me , even short while , you know 50%+ of my travels are a culinary trips, local food and drinks.
Persian food is truly amazing, colorful and strong tastes.
The rice !!! I tasted many types of rice during my travels, although its not my favorite side, Persian rice is for sure #1.
The kebab, just wow !!! First I thought they put butter in it, taste amazing and so tender.
Other type is the famous Gormeh Sabzi (green herb stew) , or many other kind of Sabzi, which is a wonderful stew of beef and vegetables.
Travel to Iran is currently a dream, you never know, Happy Thanks Giving Y’all.
