Persian cuisine is gaining popularity in multicultural cities such as London. Iranian culinary styles have historically been influenced by interactions with the cuisines of the neighbouring regions, including Caucasian cuisine, Turkish cuisine, Levantine cuisine, Greek cuisine, Central Asian cuisine, and Russian cuisine.
Typical Iranian main dishes are combinations of rice with meat such as lamb, chicken, or fish, with vegetables and plenty herbs and nuts. Characteristic Iranian flavourings such as saffron, cinnamon, turmeric, and parsley are also used in certain dishes.
The cuisine is familiar yet different. Some dishes are comparable to the thick texture of Indian curries but not hot and spicy but made with delicate herbs and spices such as saffron, cinnamon, cumin, and dried limes. The kababs resemble the Turkish variety, but the chicken or lamb is marinated in saffron and lime juice and served on skewers with mounds of steamed rice, grilled tomatoes, and herbs.
