  1. I love her writing, her humour, her sensibility. I wish I could have met her. She has an amazing voice and is a very talented writer. I am half way through Pomegranate Soup and I am inspired to try some of the recipes which I will cook in her memory. It’s traffic to learn that such a wonderful person meet her end like that. Seems it all started when she was forced to leave BrooklYn.

    • Thank you Julie! Glad you are enjoying Pomegranate Soup. And you are right about forcing her to leave her chosen home was the beginning of all problems

      Wishing your best

  2. I have just finished reading Pomegranate Soup and thought it was a beautiful book. I found the interwoven stories of food and life, both in Iran and Ireland, fascinating.
