The Saffron Kitchen

The Saffron Kitchen - Yasmin Crowther This book focuses on a family with ties to England and Iran. There are essentially two stories being told, one of a mother's life in Iran and her daughter's life in England. I found the stories themselves intriguing and the description of Iran and its' customs fascinating. I believe all Americans should read about different cultures, especially those that are in the news at this time in history. There is so much we do not understand, and putting a face on the people we hear about is one step toward understanding. This is a good book not only for the story, but for the little bit of history and culture of the Iranian people.
