Naw-Rúz, A New Year Recipe Round-up!

Naw-Rúz is a New Year holiday celebrated by people of all nationalities and several religions, living all over the world!

I am delighted and honored to be invited to join a collaboration of food bloggers, who are part of
a Naw-Rúz  Recipe Round-up  (Twitter #Norouz).  Naw-Rúz,  spelled differently by people of different backgrounds, meaning  ‘New-Day’,  is celebrated on the day of the astronomical northward equinox, which usually occurs on March 21 or the previous/following day, depending on where it is observed. (California: Thursday, 2014/03/20 at 9:57AM PDT)

At the end of this post, please note the list of bloggers who have participated in the Naw-Rúz Recipe Round-up 2014, with a link to their related recipe posts. Following are my articles and recipes I am including in this round-up (click on the thumbnails).

    1. Thank you, Francesca, I am certain that you will be entertained. :D

  18. Yet another Persian New Year I don’t get invited to eat the delicious food. :D

    1. Hi Sindy, The fabulous thing about Naw-Ruz is, you don’t need to get invited. You just let your friends know that you want to visit them for Naw-Ruz. Before telephones, people just showed up. And then, friends reciprocate your visit. Every home is ready with a table of sweets, nuts, fruits, flowers and tea brewing waiting for you. :D ))) Hugs,

  19. Fae, this is such a beautiful post with so much information and such a great resource with the links to all of the awesome bloggers who are participating! Thanks for all of this and Happy Naw-Ruz to you!

    1. Thank you so much, Julianna. We all collaborated with so much excitement. I am glad that you have enjoyed it. Let me know if anything particularly stood out for you. :D

  20. I’ve checked out all the recipes you have listed below your post, it turned out a great “collation” of recipes! Happy Naw-Rúz!

    1. I am so pleased that you enjoyed your exploration, Margherita. The recipes picked by the lady bloggers are truly outstanding. I wouldn’t be able to post much for the next few weeks, but I will post some more Persian recipes in the next few months. Naw-Ruz is very special to us, especially being far from our motherland, which we have nostalgic memories of.

  21. This is a beautiful round-up Fae!! Such stunning dishes, I am drooling over that Iranian baklava. Ah… during times like these, I wish I could eat through the screen! Happy New Year to you and yours. I can’t wait to click through some of those recipe links xx

    1. Thank you, Laura! When you explore, you are in for a treat! :D

    1. Hello Dear Shayam, The feeling is mutual. I am glad to have met you (virtually) and hope there will be future collaborations to look forward too. :D

  25. Happy Naw-Ruz! Looks like a fantastic array of recipes!

  26. Happy Naw-Ruz & New Year. This looks like a beautiful and INCREDIBLY delicious festival, dear Fae. Have a wonderful weekend, and thank you for sharing! :-) Abba is in CA twice this month, once in Palo Alto and once in San Francisco. Do you have any restaurant recommendations for great Persian food (our favorite!)?

    1. Darling Shanna, Thank you very much for all the lovely comments. The rain has stopped and we are having a great warm weather now. The two restaurants I recommend are Maykadeh in SF and Shalizar in Belmont (not too far from PA). We do travel extra miles if it is to either of these restaurants. xx :D

  27. Hi Fae, Those lace type cookies look amazing :)

  35. Fabulous round up of blogs and dishes, I had no idea that Norooz was celebrated in other countries besides Iran. I will be visiting all of the blogs that participated.

    1. Thank you, Suzanne.
      -You may know about some of the sweets/foods posted, but I am certain that you will find some new recipes which delight you.
      -Yes, not only do many countries celebrate Naw-Ruz as their calendar new year, but for instance, Naw-Ruz is a big religious Holy Day for the Baha’is (my Faith), which is practiced by the natives of over 200 countries in the world. It is quite unique. For Persian/Iranian-Baha’is, it has twice the significance.

  36. Wow!! That’s all!

    1. No, Susan, there are more! :D ))) Combined, I’m sure there will be more posts through Naw-Ruz. I will post more Persian sweets and main dishes in the up-coming months.

  37. I appreciate your roundup…so many new blogs and great food for me to explore. Thanks for taking the time to put this together, Fae.

    1. Thank you, Karen. It sure is an exciting collaboration. When you have time, please do explore them. All recipes are taditional and celebratory. :D

  38. Fae – I truly enjoyed reading your post and exploring your blog – what an interesting story you have! :) And gosh I haven’t seen nan panjerehi in decades!!! What memories this brings back. Thank you for sharing :)

    1. Thank you very much, Ahu. I love your blog and intending to visit often and explore more. :D
