Cook the Book is a book club with a difference, and we are so excited to be welcoming acclaimed author Yasmin Khan to cook from her debut cookbook The Saffron Tales: Recipes from the Persian Kitchen. 

This is an amazing chance to meet British-Iranian author Yasmin, to watch her cook, hear stories from her travels around Iran, armed with little more than a notebook and a bottle of pomegranate molasses, and understand more about this amazing cuisine.

This is what people have said about The Saffron Tales:

One of the more engrossing cookbooks I read this year . . . Nations speak and, in some cases, survive through their culinary traditions. This book is an incomparable and important examination of Iranian society through its kitchens and cuisine (Jessica Kaslow Sqirl)


Poetry in pistachios and pomegranates (Guardian)


Yasmin Khan has lived and traveled widely in Iran, and The Saffron Tales . . . reflects traditions she knows intimately. But she has the rare gift of being able to translate her personal heritage into recipes even newcomers will be able to pull off. (The New York Times Book Review)


Of all the books I read for this roundup, [The Saffron Tales] had the most recipes I wanted to try. The combination of simple and unusual gets me every time. An omelette with dates and cinnamon was a delight. Olives marinated with walnuts and pomegranates were cocktail-hour crack. (The Wall Street Journal)
