Iran Real Food Adventure

From £1.0E+19 for 0 days
Trip Overview
Iran’s charm begins with its stunning environment – snow-capped mountains, rolling deserts, ancient cities and crowded bazaars all add to an unforgettable tapestry of a culture less experienced. However the heart of this charm truly lies in the palate – within the odorous spices, succulent meats and mouth-watering stews created through thousands of years of perfected techniques. Saffron, cheeses, crispy rice and succulent meats all contribute to full flavoured meals capable of taking anyone to another place. It’ll happen to you too. Once you dine on tah chin, fesenjan or any of the other dishes on this Real Food Adventure, it’ll only take a hint of saffron to throw your thoughts back into the depths of that bazaar – that unforgettable moment where the taste of Persia first hit your tongue.

Itinerary & Notes
Salam! Welcome to Tehran, Iran. You will be met on arrival at Tehran International airport and transferred to your hotel. This marvellous city sits at the bottom of the Alborz Mountains – their snowy peaks serving as a photogenic backdrop for the colourful buildings below. Tehran is commonly known as one of the country’s most liberal metropolitan areas and this may become obvious through an adventure into the depths of their hospitality scene. It’d be easy to call Iran a land of kebabs, but the country’s gastronomy is a little more complicated than that. Lamb, chickpeas, tahdig (crispy rice pies) and potatoes are all common staples – just don’t forget they’re best washed down with a cup of dugh (minty yoghurt drink). Your adventure begins with a welcome meeting today at 6 pm. Once you arrive, jump straight into a food adventure by sharing a welcome meal with family in their home. Depending on the day, your hosts may prepare typical dishes like khoresht gheimeh (a beef and split pea stew with fried potatoes), zereshk polo morgh (baked saffron rice with barberries and chicken), the famous fesenjan (a poultry stew with pomegranates and walnuts), baghali polo (a rice dish with lamb, saffron, fava beans and dill), or ghormeh sabzi (lamb with herbs and kidney beans, served with rice). Tonight is also about introductions, so enjoy this dinner spread while getting to know your new travel crew.
