Salam and welcome to Turmeric and Saffron. خوش آمدید
My name is Azita, I was born and raised in Iran. I came to New York many years ago for just a short visit and to take some ESL classes. Little did I know that my short stay would turn into a life-time. I chose to pursue a higher education followed by a career, got married and I'm a mother of two wonderful daughters.
I enjoy cooking for my family and love to show everyone how simple, healthy and delicious Persian food can be. I mostly use the same traditional recipes that I’ve learned from my late mother and it’s all done with a lot of love and care. I have been sharing Persian recipes since December of 2008, six months after the loss of my mother. This blog was created as a tribute to her amazing culinary prowess and to honor her loving memory.
