The saltiness of the world’s current political climate cannot be overstated; here now, look beyond it with a touch of something sweet

A recipe and story from The Saffron Tales: Recipes from the Persian Kitchen from Eater

“I first ate this dish on a chilly February morning at the home of Maman Betty, a lovable grandmother from Tabriz who sat me in her kitchen and fed me plate after plate of local delicacies until I could barely speak. Tabriz is a city in the mountainous north-west of Iran, where winter temperatures rarely reach more than 2 or 3 degrees above freezing in the daytime and where the local food is hearty and filling. This sweet omelette, filled with dried fruit and warming spices, is incredibly soothing on a weekend morning, when all you want to do is snuggle up on the sofa with the newspapers. As the dark, sticky dates begin to caramelize in the cinnamon and ginger flavored butter, they will fill your kitchen with a deliciously sweet scent – a rather fine way to start the day, I’m sure you’ll agree.”
