This author lived in Iran until she moved to the United States as a teenager. As an adult, she moved to France to study at Cordon Bleu, and then worked at various restaurants in the US and France. Eventually, she owned a restaurant in San Francisco.
If you've read this blog for awhile, you know that I like to read cooking memoirs. This one was one of the more enjoyable memoirs I've read, mostly because the author is very humble and endearing.
Recommended for a pleasant read.
