To help us learn more about Persian (a.k.a. Iranian) food, we turned to culinary authority Najmieh Batmanglij. In addition to insight on Persian culinary traditions, she provided us with recipes from her book New Food of Life.


  1. 1Pour yogurt, mint, salt, and pepper into a pitcher. Stir well.
  2. 2Add club soda or spring water gradually, stirring constantly. Add 3 or 4 ice cubes and mix again.
  3. 3Serve chilled. Nush-e-Jan!
