1. What is the Persian dish, called Tahdig?

A – Tahdig is a specialty of Persian and Mesopotamian foods consisting of crisp rice taken from the bottom of the pot in which the rice is cooked. The name comes from a Persian word meaning “bottom of the pot”. Ingredients commonly added to tahdig include yogurt and saffron, bread, potato and tomato. Variations on ‘Tahdig’ include placing thin vegetable slices at the bottom of the pot, so they crisp up instead of the rice. Common vegetables include potato and carrots. Iranians also apply this ‘crisping’ method to spaghetti as well, providing a crisp spaghetti base.

2. What are the main ingredients of a daube?

A – A Provencal daube (named for the French braising pan, daubière) is a long-cooked dish, usually made with inexpensive beef. Allow plenty of time for the meat to simmer in red wine. A chuck roast weighing between four and five pounds can take four hours to cook. Make the dish the day before, let it cool, skim off the fat, and reheat it the following day. To this simmering pot, add the pared rind and juice of a navel orange, if you like. You can also make a daube with a bottle of white wine. Serve with mashed potatoes.

3. What does ‘almondegas’, ‘keftedes’, ‘kyufte’ and ‘bakso’ have in common?

A – It is the name of meatballs in different countries.

4. What is sumac?
