Chunks of lean lamb are gently simmered with dates in a richly spiced gravy, then piled atop couscous and pistachio nuts, and sprinkled with pomegranate seeds. Serve this exotic dish for a special family meal or a make-ahead dish for entertaining, accompanied by some Arabic flat bread and a simple leafy green salad.

Lavash is an unleavened flat bread popular in Armenia, Iran and Turkey. It is traditionally cooked in a tandoor, but you can use your oven! Great alternative to wraps and naan.

I've seen a lot of recipes for this soup; however, my mum-in-law adds tomato puree for a bit of a different flavour and she doesn't add any lentils or beans. It's thick, filling and delicious, and you could make it vegetarian by using vegetable stock.

Sekanjabin (sometimes spelled sekanjubin or sekanjamin, among others) is a delicious and refreshing Persian drink that dates as far back as the 10th century AD. The syrup lasts indefinitely, and is also nice to drizzle over fresh fruit, so it's great to have around. Enjoy!

A lot of oil will come to the top of the dish. Don't worry, this is normal - it is the oil from the walnuts. Most supermarkets carry pomegranate juice, or you can find the syrup in Middle Eastern shops.

This is a Persian dish of chicken stewed in a pomegranate and walnut sauce. As they do in Iran, serve Khoresht Fesenjaan with white rice.
