There’s a little Iranian stall in my neighborhood, and I love browsing through their endless varieties of dried fruit and nuts, and exotic Persian herbs.
The elderly gentleman who sits at the stall barely speaks a few words of English, but with broken dialect and animated gestures, he proudly presents the jewels of his heritage to anyone vaguely interested.
The other day, I stopped by to pick up my weekly dose of zereshk, and found myself fiddling with a small bag of dried petals. They were in the prettiest shades of indigo, violet and purple.
Happy New Year! Today marks the first day of the Chinese New Year, and 2015 marks the year of the goat.
