Shiraz Dinner Party with Locals – Eshtiagh Family
You are invited to a special private gathering in the wonderful city of Shiraz.
Your hosts are one of our experienced tour leaders and his kind family. You will be treated exactly like a usual Iranian guest and experience a real Persian dinner party. In cold seasons of the year, the night starts with tea and traditional Shirazi sweets to warm you up; in warm seasons, on the other hand, a cool Persian Sharbat (usually mint or bitter orange extract, sugar and rosewater) will welcome you.
They present a wide range of food that you can pick from. The list of starters consists of Dopiaze Sibzamini (fried mix of mashed potatoes and onions), Kashke Bademjan (mashed eggplants, fried onions and a white sauce called Kashk), Mirza Ghasemi and bread, cheese and vegetables. For the main course, you can choose an item from Kalam Polo Shirazi (rice, meatballs and shredded cabbages), Ghormeh Sabzi (lamb meat and vegetable stew), Dolmeh (stuffed tomatoes or eggplants) and Dizi.
For the dessert your options are Ranginak (date, walnuts and rosewater), Sholeh Zard (a rice pudding made of saffron, cinnamon and rosewater), Faloodeh (ice noodles and lime juice) and Bastani (traditional Persian ice cream made of saffron, cream and pistachio). Seasonal fruits, sunflower seeds and nuts will be the yummy snacks of the night.
