The Chef

Moreover, Ariana Rahmani is an award-winning chef and author whose love of food has never wavered. Having grown up surrounded by the diverse flavors of her family’s Persian cooking, she was inspired to write ‘Pomegranates & Roses: my Persian family recipes – a cookbook that won her an award at the Gourmand Cookbook Awards in 2012. However, It was not enough for Ariana; wanting to expand her reach further, she created a TV show about Persian cuisine that appeared on international media. With her unique blend of flavors, it didn’t take long for people to fall in love with Ariana’s Eastern-inspired dishes. Her infectious enthusiasm for the food she creates has left viewers hungry for more!

The Inspiration

Furthermore, Iranians are renowned for their creative and flavorful cuisine, with traditional spices like saffron and rosewater used to give dishes a unique feel. Saffron is derived from the purple crocus flower and has been used as a spice for centuries in Iranian cooking. It adds a subtle musky flavor and a vibrant golden color to many popular dishes. Rosewater is another delicious and aromatic ingredient often used in Iranian dishes. It’s made by steeping fresh rose petals in water, which gives it a sweet and lightly floral taste. Added to foods like ice cream, rice dishes, soups, and desserts, rosewater adds an exotic element to any dish.
