We do some Parsi-style gorging, even as it readies itself for the yummy Nowruz Festival
The Iranians call it Nowruz. The Parsis, descendants of the ancient Zoroastrians in India, spell it as Nowroz. Each one of them has slightly different traditions, but both communities celebrate the event with the most splendid of tables, groaning under the weight of the most marvellous of dishes. The essence of the festival, that marks the spring equinox on March 21, is to celebrate life amongst family and friends.
