My name is Ozzie Azadegan and I am a first generation Persian American born and raised in Littleton, Colorado. Currently, I am a senior at the University of Colorado in Boulder and am excited for whatever life brings next. Growing up with Persian parents wasn’t always a cake walk as our culture differed from those of my American friends. With time and patience however, I realized how truly blessed I was to be Persian and began to appreciate the culture, the warmth, and most of all the food. Many of my fondest childhood memories have in one way or another surrounded food and the kitchen. In a culture where food and entertaining comes second nature to most it is not difficult to understand why food has a special place in my heart. Becoming very Americanized I have come to realize I do not have all the time in the world however to cook traditional Persian cuisines and as a result created this blog with some of my favorite Persian American recipes that are quick, easy, and most of all healthy.
