Ca kiem sympatyczna ksi ka, bardzo podoba mi si pomys z przepisami, koniecznie b d musia a co wypr bowa. This was a delicious summer read Part Journey from the Land of No , part The Taste of Chocolate , Marsha Mehran tells a magical tale of 3 sisters who change the village of Ballinacroagh, Ireland when they move to town after fleeing the Iranian revolution In the process of becoming part of the community and influencing the people who live there, they begin to come to terms with their own painful past Each chapter starts with a recipe for a Persian delicacy which is incorporated into the story At times I really wanted to go out and find a Persian restaurant or to go to a grocery store to find the unusual ingredients required to cook some of these dishes myself . My dear friend Cathy sent me this book, and I imagine that she bought it because of its title Pomegranate Soup, which is the best soup that I have ever eaten She and I had it as a small Persian caf , Soltan Banno, in San Diego, CA just before I moved to Oklahoma.I had met Cathy in an encounter group while in college We both lived in Berkeley, and at one time we both dated Iranians I moved to San Diego just before moving to Oklahoma She and I remain close friends to this very day.In the book, three Persian sisters who had escaped Iran, came to Ireland to open up a Persian caf where they served this wonderful soup and other Iranian delights At the end of each chapter there is a recipe, which reminds of the book, Like Water for Chocolate The Iranian, Mehran, that I dated while living in Berkeley, like the woman in this story, had also escaped Iran in the time of the uprising Mehran once made me a Persian dish, Chelo Kabab with Masto Khiar It too was very good But nothing is better than that soup, which recipe I wish I had Both recipes may have been in the book, but I no longer own it so I don t recall. This book was very wonderful for what it was a delicious mixture of food and the personal journeys of three sisters who escape Iran on the eve of the revolution and eventually make their way to Ireland This book pleasantly reminded me of another book about the magic of food from another culture The Mistress of Spices We learn of the sisters experiences in Iran through flashbacks throughout the book, and I really appreciated Mehran s light touch in her descriptions of the sisters painful memories In my opinion, too many books are heavy handed and overwhelming with sadness when they flashback to such events Mehran had just the right combination of sadness and facts that made me want to learnabout this terrible time in Iran, but did not frighten me away from the violent history In Ireland, the sumptuous exotic spices of the sisters cooking reinvigorate the aspirations of the townsfolk in Ballinacroagh and bring them together I of course was hungry the entire time reading the book and would love to try some of the recipes that Mehran includes before every chapter A yummy light read that delivered all it promised I am looking forward to discussing it at my book club on Monday and will post any other revelations our discussion brings On a happy note, this might be my most successful book club pick ever thanks Holyn for joining GoodReads so I could read your review , ,,, , , , ,, , ,, , , ,, 7
