Some Persian food, like all home cooking is ... homely. It needs a bit of prettying up. Parsley will do, or coriander or chopped tomato. Attractive choices abound. So of all the garnishes the global pantry has to offer, I didn't expect to find french-fried potato sticks — the casserole topper of yore, the snack of lucky schoolchildren — on top of eggplant and meat stew. But there it was, and well, why not?
It's just another thing to like about Lazziz, this peek into someone's culinary mind, into how another culture works American products into its own favorite foods. So, sure, bring on the potato sticks.
