Flashback Friday: I Had a Kitchen in Tehran

Sadly, that big kitchen was mine for a very short time. From September to December 1978. Despite my misgivings upon arrival in the summer of 1978, I came to love living in a city neighborhood that had all the amenities within a block or two. But 1978 brought a major upheaval to Iran, and after the big Thanksgiving meal that year, I did very little cooking. Day by day, revolution was controlling my daily life.

Soon I was on an airplane never to see Iran again and I  suspect I never will get a chance to go back. I should have bought that kilo of caviar at the airport when I had the chance!
