SARABAN, meaning cameleer is the title of a book on Persian cuisine by Greg and Lucy Malouf; an unforgettable culinary journey through modern-day Persia. Following ancient spice trails, Greg and Lucy discover a land of generous hospitality, of tea-houses, mosques and caravanserais. They meet pistachio farmers and toffee makers, saffron growers and boat builders, eat in exotic restaurants, bustling bazaars and tiny soup kitchens and are invited time and again into the homes of people they meet along the way.
Lavishly illustrated throughout, SARABAN offers a unique and remarkable window into a world steeped in history and tradition, and a comprehensive introduction to the delights of Persian cuisine.
A number of events have been organised for Greg and Lucy Malouf at some of their favourite London venues to promote the book.
