Happy Norouz to You!
Today, the first day of spring, is Persian New Year. I'd rather actually enjoy it than write about it, so I'm going to point over to a couple things I've done elsewhere. First read the thing, then look at the pictures. Here's to a sweet and happy new year to all!
UPDATE: I've added the recipe for sabzi polo, the spring dish of four-herb rice that is, along with fish, the traditional dish of norouz.
Words: I wrote an article for LA Lunchbox about the New Year tradition of Haftsinn. The article is here.
Pics: Now that you know what the haftsinn is about, check out photos of my mom's traditional version, and my own funkier version.
