Noshe Djan: Afghan Food and Cookery

‘Helen Saberi, who lived in Afghanistan for ten years and married an Afghan engineer, had made this compilation of authentic dishes from a country whose cuisine has never been previously documented in such an illuminating way. Accustomed herself to cooking these dishes in England, she adds practical advice for western cooks.

Much information is supplied on eating habits and traditions, and foodstuffs, in Afghanistan. In this revised edition, following on the success of the first in Britain and overseas (wherever Afghans have settled in their recent diaspora), Helen Saberi has added over seventy new recipes as well as refining the techniques of those she included in the original version.’

The first edition of Noshe Djan was translated and published in French and Italian. The second edition was translated into Dutch and a US edition was also published in 2000.
