Yesterday was a historic day in West of Persia history. It was the first official video shoot for this blog.
We had a blast shooting recipes for Saffron Lemon Chicken, a simple basmati rice, asparagus roasted with cumin, and cauliflower puree with a Middle Eastern kick.
Oh, and we also shot some video tips for prepping chocolate drop cookies with pistachios, sour cherries, and cardamom.
I have to take a moment to shout out to Leela and Jenny for being the best behind-the-scenes crew ever. Both of you guys were so generous with your time, energy, and many talents. Leela is quick, efficient, and so adept with the technical side of things. Jenny kept things neat, clean, and pretty. No easy task when cooking up a storm on camera! Both are a ton of fun to hang out with AND work with. Love you girls and thanks so much for everything!
So please do keep an eye on this blog in the coming weeks to see the fruits of our labor.
Have a great weekend, everybody!
