Today I’m talking with my friends, Masoud and Zahra. We talk about Iranian food culture and the power of the table to draw people together and create a shared space to learn about one another’s stories. Scroll down for some fun photos.

Dinner at Masoud’s Apartment with Masoud and Arash
We’ve loved learning about Persian culture through our friendship with Masoud and Zahra. Last year, they hosted Nowruz—Persian New Year—for our family and friends. The top photo in this post is some of the food Zahra and Masoud cooked for us. Below is a photo of the Haft-Seen, a tabletop arrangement of seven symbolic items traditionally displayed at Nowruz.
