Persia on meals

Travel ID: CT/14

Persian cuisine is not just ancient and cosmopolitan; it is also therapeutic for body and soul. The legendary Physician and Philosopher, Avicenna, in his great book The Canon of Medicine, describes the healing and beneficial aspects of different foods, fruits, and vegetables for the body. He explains that every human body has a temperament that must be in balance with the food and drinks’ nature.

On your travel to Iran, you might hear that some foods are cold or hot. For instance walnut, pepper, and lamb has hot nature, apple, green tea, and fish have cold nature. Every city in every province of Iran has hundreds of dishes local to the area for every season of the year so we just picked a few of the most famous ones.
