New book: Maman’s Homesick Pie

Maman's Homesick PieThe first day of spring is celebrated in many parts of the MidEast as the New Year (in Persian, “Nourouz”), a time of rebirth and renewal. Donia Bijan’s new cookbook, Maman’s Homesick Pie, introduces us to homecooking, Persian style, supplemented by some of the techniques she learned in France and opening her bistro in California. While the locale and recipes may seem rather exotic, as she explains in this NPR interview the book emphasizes how family-oriented cooking is truly universal.
