    In Iran, Nowruz celebrations last 13 days. That’s without counting Chaharshanbe Suri, well introduced a video post from @middleeastmatters (see Stories), which includes the purifying ritual of jumping over fires, and other customs such as qāšoq-zani or ‘spoon-banging’ - a trick-or-treat like custom of dressing up, knocking on doors, banging pots and pans and getting snacks as treats in return. This article (link in bio) by Omid Roustaei, @thecaspainchef, on @thekitchn, beautifully describes the Nowruz Iranian customs: cleaning in new year preparation, visiting relatives, the Haft-seen table of seven symbolic items beginning with S to welcome the new year. He also talks about many types of cookies and so many other delicious sounding traditional foods, plus recipes. Something I really like about the research for this project is finding melting edges between different cultures’ specific customs - here aash-e reshteh is a symbolic noodle soup, as “noodles are believed to be a symbol of good fortune.” In Tibet, Guthuk is noodle soup that ushers in Losar; eating Korean Tteokguk ages you a year on Seollal. (It also led me to find the wikipedia “List of Notable Soups” page, which I shall enjoy off the Year of Years clock.) Omid also describes Seez-deh Be-dar, the ritual of gathering bundles of wheatgrass gently grown from seed from the beginning of Nowruz and, on the 13th and final day of the festival, sending these to float away on a river, symbolically taking away anything negative of the last year and making a wish for the new one. His wish: “This year, I’m wishing for an end to the global pandemic, so that once again we can embrace our loved ones and kiss them on both cheeks to regain that deep belonging and connection we have been missing.” Happy New Year. #Nowruz #IranianNewYear #PersianNewYear #HappyNewYear #soup Posted @withregram • @thecaspianchef I am thrilled to announce that I have joined @thekitchn team as a freelance contributor and my first two articles relating to Nowruz, the Persian New Year and a traditional Nowruz dish, Sabzi Polo are now posted.

    101 Years Old and Happy New Year! Love, Glitter Girl have you gone mad?

    Happy New Year!  Huh, Happy New Year?  Um, wasn’t that a couple of months ago?  Well, yes it was.  And, it is also today!  And, on top of that, my Father in Law (Bubba Joon), who lives with us, is 101 years old today!  Can you even imagine? First, the New Year.  Today is the Persian New Year and you may or may not know, that Mr. Tony is Persian.  People often look at me in confusion when I say…
