Damavand, iranian cuisine, My Big Geneva

Nowruz is the traditional new year of the Persian calendar (first day of spring) celebrated in Iran between March 20 and 22 according to the vernal equinox.

 

It marks the beginning of the year.

To celebrate Nowruz in Geneva, Chef Maryam Moharrery cooked chelow kabab – meat skewers – and khoresht – stew for us. Served with basmati rice and its possible variations. Maryam’s bestseller? Barberry rice with pistachios.

Maryam Moharrery prepares all her artisanal dishes with accuracy and delicacy.

She observes and then reproduces the traditional processes with fresh products from the region and spices from Iran; also, within the limits of her capacities in order to ensure that each order is a healthy trip to Persia with authentic flavors.

For your playlist? Vay Az in Halam from Ehaam, Hamid Janam, Zaraban to name only a few.
