Hello and welcome to The Persian Pot

My name is Marzie. I am an architect, designer and a passionate cook. I was born and grew up in Iran, living with my family and enjoying the delicious and gorgeous food that my mother cooked with love.

When I was 18 I left my parents’ home and started university studies in a city far from my home town, where I had to cook on my own. The first attempt turned out to be a disaster, but I didn’t give up and kept trying until I learned to cook almost all the popular Iranian dishes, and many of my friends would ask me for recipes of the foods I cooked. I remember having a small notebook where I wrote down the recipes I learned from my mom and sister.

Few years ago I traveled to Barcelona and I continued cooking Persian foods, and each time I would receive a positive feedback from people who tried it. That was when the idea of starting a food blog came to my mind.

About Recipes

The recipes shared on The Persian Pot are either originally Iranian, or just popular among Iranians. Also some of them are labeled as Persianized which refers to non-Iranian recipes that are changed to fit Persian cuisine. The recipes explain all the tips you need to know and are tested several times by my friends, family or myself.

About Photos

Photographs on this blog are taken by a group of talented cooks who work with The Persian Pot. The name of each photographer is mentioned below the recipe´s title and you can contact them individually from the Contact page by mentioning the name of photographer in the beginning of your message.

  2. Salaam Marthea (?) jaan,
    I am sorry azizam I am not 100% if that is your name, I tried to read it from comment above but my reading of Farsi is not yet perfect 😉
    What a beautiful page you have set up, I love it!
    We have so much in common, I am also living in Europe right now, and cooking helps relieve home-sickness.
    Iranians are our beloved sisters, even here in Europe where I live there are few Afghans, I often visit a local Iranian restaurant or café because speaking to friends in Farsi makes me feel at home.
    I am looking forward to sharing stories and recipes jaanem 🙂

    1. Its Marzie azizam. Thanks a lot for your kind words. I´m so happy to have an Afghan visitor. Iranian and Afghan culture have a lot in common specially when it comes to food and it´s great that I can learn some Afghan recipes from your blog.

  3. Hi Marzie jan,
    Will you please pass this message to Mehnoosh Mahdavi. Thank you! 🙂

    Hello Dear Mehnoosh,
    It is only lately that I have come across your photography. I am not on Instagram but have seen your body of work and it is magnificent. I am in awe of your talent.
    I would love to communicate with you, if you would please respond to my e-mail (faeinternational@yahoo.com). I am a food blogger (http://fae-magazine.com/) and would love to make your acquaintance.
    I do not write or read Farsi well, but I can write and read Romanized Farsi.
    ~ Fae 🙂

  5. Marzieh jan,
    Can I suggest to add a search bar on your website to make the life easier when searching for a specific recipe? (or maybe I can’t find it!)

    1. Hi Shabnam, There is already a search bad on the right side menu in the blog. Scroll down a little and you will see ¨Search the pot!¨
