A Taste of Iran is a
journey of discovery of a land and its
culture through its cuisine. BBC’s Iran
expert Sadeq Saba will guide the
audience through different regions of
Iran as he explores the culinary history
and culture of Iranians.
But what differentiates
this series from other travel shows and
films about Iran is the access of the
filmmakers to ordinary Iranians across
the country and the filmakers depth of
knowledge about Iran and Iranians.
In his sojourns through
Iran Sadeq will meet interesting
characters who will tell him about all
things food related and beyond. He will
travel to four regions of Iran and in
each region he will find an
extraordinary variety of food as well as
cultural and historical backgrounds.
The regions are: 1- The
capital, Tehran 2- North, provinces of
Gilan and Mazandran 3- South and East,
