The Tradition Of 'Haft-Sin'

Haft-sin is considered a time of happy gatherings with family and friends, when seven foods are represented to honor the spirit of fresh season.

The idea of serving lentil sprouts, wheat-based recipes, olives, berries, vinegar, apples and garlic is linked to nurturing growth, power, love, sunrise, patience, beauty and health.

In the beautiful garden of multi-cultural flowers, the spring-infused fragrance of Nawroz brings grace to every season with sparkling filaments of historical, religious and cultural eloquence.
