Margaret Shaida

Margaret Shaida was born in the United Kingdom but married an Iranian and went to live in that country for 25 years. It was here that she learned Persian cooking techniques from her extended family. She also became obsessed with the Tehran markets and the beautiful produce it offered. 

As a result, she wrote one of the best surveys of this important cuisine. Shaida includes much information on the cultural history of Persia (Iran) as well as many insights into the techniques required for reproducing the recipes in the home kitchen. This is definitely a cuisine to take a strong interest in.
