The Culinary Essentials

For those of you who are big foodies but don’t want to be bothered with a cooking class, then this is a perfect tour to add to your Iran trip.

In our Culinary Essentials tour, we meet in Tajrish square and start with a local breakfast. Then we’re off to explore the best foodie stops in the neighbourhood and stroll around the market as we learn of new ingredients, their usage and sample products. We will stop at different bakeries, family-owned food stalls and see how Samanu is made in big portions. We’ll try way too many Iranian pickles,  taste a huge variety of nuts and Iranian pastries and learn all about the variety of Iranian bread served in Tehran just before we finish things off with lunch and tea.

Shop, Cook, Feast

Our Shop, Cook, Taste tours are a half day adventure, making it perfect to add to even the tightest schedules in Tehran. We’ll meet at Tajrish and start with a walking tour of Tajrish bazaar where we’ll introduce our guests to exceptional ingredients and spices unique to this part of the world while we experience shopping for a few fresh ingredients like the locals. Then we’ll head over to the kitchen where Shirin will show us her magic in creating the most delectable Persian dishes. We’ll be cooking a 5 course meal adjusted to the season and enriched with the freshest ingredients.

Once the wafting aroma of the delicious meal dissipates the kitchen, we’ll set the table and gather for a huge Persian feast as we chat and exchange experiences.
