'The Saffron Tales'

Hosted by

All traditional spring holidays celebrate the awakening of earth from a winter sleep. In Iran, the spring equinox brings Nowruz, the Persian New Year. Celebrations kick off later this month so we called writer and cook Yasmin Khan to find out what she'll be serving for the holiday. Her new book, The Saffron Tales, celebrates the land and flavors of Iran. Find a recipe for sabzi polo baa mahi (mixed herb rice with baked salmon) from her book on the Good Food blog.
