  • Welcome to the best episode of cheat day ever I'm Miriam Issa and I'm Renee ariel and this is my first ever team
  • I'm so excited and not just because we're gonna eat so much good Persian food, but because
  • This is your rite of passage into the Persian community. You guys I have always wanted to be Persian
  • She's one of the reasons why I hang out with you. Oh, yeah Wow, it's good to know now
  • You're always there. But today it's happening
  • Okay, so one like crucial thing about being a Persian is you have to have tea at all times when you show up at a
  • Persian household the first thing you'll be offered is tea
  • So let's have some tea. Let's get started blends our palates
  • !
  • Did you like green or red so I'll do green okay? Yeah, these are so cute Cheers
  • Okay, so there's sugar in the bottom it just hasn't been mixed
  • I'm okay with that and I'm fine adjust the sugar until my uncle
  • Does he always take a sugar cube, which I used to eat like straight-up candy. Yeah. Oh no, I need something
  • And you don't have a spoon user hoop earring it's a tie your JLo Persian hybrid so sorry mom
  • It's gonna taste so much better now Watts. Try it, okay
  • But what you're supposed to do with Persian tea is you get a sugar cube
  • You put it your mouth and then you sip the tea
  • So like the sugars in your mouth instead of in the tea instead of it look like when you stick?!
  • Chocolate syrup in your mouth and then you drink milk and then go I mean, I don't know
  • Who does that you guys? We live in LA. There are so many crucians in LA and the food is bomb
  • So what's the first thing we're gonna have? Okay. So another staple
  • In a Persian household is Moscow PR, which is cucumber yogurt just like that
  • Oh my god this looks so you eat it with your meal you eat it with everything and obviously
  • to start off
  • This episode we need it with some pita bread. This is some thick pita bread!. Yeah
  • Like CC. This is the pita bread. The yogurt is nice. Okay
  • Oh
  • This is just like my childhood!
  • What what's that baby? Don't you like it? Okay good. This was gonna be a problem. I begged I sue this episode alone
  • No, it doesn't have a strong flavor though. It's more like I'm gonna calm your mouth down
  • Mm-hmm. It's a little accessory to your meal. I think it's like the mimosa of Persian food. It's just like
  • DUPLO says calm things down
  • for you
  • the best of metaphors
  • So we gonna keep this around because we have a lot more to eat. And this is what we're gonna eat it
  • All right, but now this we have an eggplant dip which is called bademjan
  • So this is one of my mom's favorite dishes oh by the way my mom's super white American like from Connecticut
  • I'm not a full persian
  • Excuse me, did the castle so it's an eggplant dip. It's called bottoms on
  • The flavor do you mean it just dip it into your mouth?
  • You know people say they forget to eat
  • Wow does now does this I don't know that I've already eaten and then I eat it they can eat again. Yeah
  • Okay. Ready? 1 2 3 omg it is so good are you okay
  • It's like garlic mmm, it's not spicy. Mm-hmm
  • here's the thing. I like anything with I plan but this dish is one of my favorites because it's subtle flavor for Humber food
  • It's like a mac and cheese for a Persians I should stop
  • Okay, I know about this Miriam this is I don't think you understand this is a delicacy
  • It's called um physique Teddy toddy
  • So this if you go to a Persian party you are
  • waiting for this
  • it is on the top of rice and you need to be polite because I've Persians you gotta like not act like you want to
  • Eat all of it. You're like, oh no you have some but then you get the rest
  • You just eat it by its own for the first bite
  • Let's get it by itself and then we can dip it because you can dip that. I'm a purist ooh
  • I
  • Love this it's bringing back memories right of your childhood. It's bringing back my memories in here Charlotte so pretty
  • Okay, so with honey you can make it with just rice on the bottom of your pan or with potato
  • which is my favorite Oh or
  • Pita bread good, but I need meat. Oh, I didn't mean
  • Okay, I know this what is what I call
  • Penis meat because it looks like a phallus symbol, but it's actually called beef coupie day. Yes. Yes
  • Kebab, koobideh this is another just very very very popular item. I want you to try your onion
  • we have our kebab and then we have some a bun of an onion and then you can't make out afterwards and then you can
  • Hopefully you're not on a date Oh
  • Stick it, this is all right thing. I'm not a true version because my family loves grilled tomatoes and they wig Nia

  • Sparkling Duke, which I'm not a fan. It's a yogurt drink and like sweet. It's not like add animal. Oh my god
