Great evening, fantastic food and poetry-what could be better? Wonderfully authentic Persian food with poetry read by Mandana accompanying the meal. Lovely setting in Gilly's and Jed's Sussex home with interesting company including several Iranians making the most of food from their home. Going to have to try making that Persian rice dish.
