"Out of respect, I introduced Persian dishes very slowly - at Chanukah, maybe one 'Ku Ku' and Persian rice - one or two items at a time." She says she was delighted and surprised when guests raved over the fluffy saffron rice and the oversize fresh-vegetable "pancakes."In her kitchen are big bunches of fresh parsley and mint, baby spinach and green onions, pomegranates and quince.
