Persian cuisine is not just an ancient & cosmopolitan; they are also therapeutic for body & even soul. The legendary Physician and Philosopher, Avicenna, in his great book ”  Ganoon (The rules of Medicine)”, describes the healing and beneficial aspects of different foods, fruits & 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 local dishes to the area for every season of the year, so we just picked a few of the most famous ones.
