Fun Bilingual Food Recipes
Persian cuisine is one of the most diverse cuisines in the world, with recipes coming from centuries ago still in use. There are many wonderful Persian food blogs all over the internet, but to my knowledge, none of them offers bilingual food recipes for Farsi students.
Tina’s Mom has come to rescue, offering her own modernized, super-healthy, cholesterol-friendly, no-frills bilingual recipes for those who are interested in learning Farsi while having some fun in the kitchen. You do not need to have any culinary skills to try these, as Tina’s Mom will show you how to prepare any Persian dish in simple steps in less than an hour.
The recipes are presented in a bilingual format, and the ingredients are both hand-written and typed in Farsi, along with their English translation, so you can get plenty of reading and writing practice while trying these yummy dishes.
By the way, those who are interested in a more traditional approach to Persian food (with all the extra salt and oil and excessive frying of herbs and vegetables) can simply Google “Traditional Persian Recipes” and I am sure they will find many wonderful resources. Otherwise, you have landed on the right page 🙂
