Shaffron, dried lime, cinnamon and various herbs and nuts – this is what makes the Persian (or in modern days – Iranian) cuisine such a miracle of the senses.
I am a Bulgarian. And like all Bulgarians I love Shopska salad. It is the traditional and emblematic dish that no one other of the neighboring countries can claim to own it. The Balkan countries are mixture of similar culture due to their common historical past. This can be said about the cuisine as well.
