    Every time I come here, I Laugh so hard at Brad. He's Just so much fun, full of life and the quirkiness of those little excerpts, like smoke coming out of his ears, Birds flying into the windows and Brad follows it in perfect timing. Love the whole Crew. Andy, Claire, and Carla. this is the best place to come and learn new things. Bon Appetit !!!!!!!!!

    I've had this when I was invited for Persian New Year and it really is incredible! Agree on the saffron, it makes the dish.

    When I was in Shiraz, I tasted tachin with shredded chicken in between, as the filling. I loved it so much but the portion was too much for me I could only finished the chicken and left some rice. I didn’t know at the time it was barberry I thought it was pomegranate. I ate the tachin accompanied with bershk which is a very cooling translucent drink with chia seed or basil seed (not sure which it was). I love Iran especially the people. So much hospitality and love and warmth! Everybody should go to Iran because for me it’s been the most satisfying and eye opening trips in my life. Thank you Andy for making the tachin and sort of make me feel nostalgic about Iran! 😊 🇮🇷

    Andy's passion for everything he makes, makes me so happy. I feel less like a weirdo because I get very passionate about what I make and in the kitchen. I am particular about using certain methods like him and feel like there's someone out there that is the same. I love it, and love watching his videos.
    Saffron is something I LOVE but haven't used it enough myself. I am going to make this, very soon. Just need to see if I can get the berries on amazon. If not, I'll do the tart dried cherries.

    The rice seems to be sella basmati rice, which is a type of parboiled rice. It's not as fragrant and aromatic as raw basmati, but it can stand up to the beating that this particular recipe puts it through. The grains are much more hardy than raw basmati. Also, Persian food is freaking LOADED with saffron.

  • satoshiketchump
    satoshiketchump 2 months ago

    My favorite video of Andy so far for the following reasons :
    1) Persian cuisine and culture is my absolute favorite.
    2) Andy was the most passionate and excited in this episode as this dish is a part of who he is.
    3) That guy is really joyful and it's hard not to be engrossed in his little antics.
    4) The way he handled ingredients, the preparations and cooking methods were spot on with all Asian cultures. He didn't waste even a single grain of rice, he washed the bowl with water and poured it all in the bowl. He seasons just like in my culture, heavily. Western culture doesn't season as much. He knows the difference between good and best rice, it's an absolute rarity to see someone with that kind of peckiness while choosing rice.

    Looks delish. More Iranian dishes please! BUT please tell how you serve the dishes (I mean, what would you typically serve the dish with - so us newbies can get the whole experience). I also love informational tidbits - e.g. traditionally served at so and so festive occasion/ daily everyman's food etc. I'm subscribing 😊
