Spice Spoon at A Taste of Persia Festival


Hello, everyone. This weekend, on Saturday, I will be at A Taste of Persia Festival, in partnership with the City of Toronto and Aga Khan Museum. It has been organized by the Culinary Historians of Canada and I am really looking forward to seeing many of your familiar faces there. I’ll be speaking about my memories of my paternal grandmother and how it ties me to Persian food and I will also be conducting a workshop, making my Rose Ring Cake. See you all there. The full programme link is here.
