When Iranians gather for a Persian night with friends, the cuisine is one of the most important parts, but not all of it. What we call Mehmooni have been described as: “Mehmooni (noun) A social gathering of people, of whom at least one must be of Persian descendant, with the sole purpose of drinking and having a good time.” Traditional drinks, dancing, playing backgammon and Daberna, smoking shisha and the tea routine with traditional sweets are parts of the culture of having guests in home, and it is definitely one of the most important intangible attractions of Iran.

In the fun PERSIAN MEHMOONI NIGHT TOUR, we are focused on creating a real life memorable yet educative experience of a Persian cuisine and night in a happy atmosphere of an Iranian home. If you want to know HOW IT IS TO BE TREATED AS A MEHMOON INSIDE AN IRANIAN HOME, you will fall in love with this choice. During the experience you will learn, experience and cook:

  • One Persian style starter;
  • One Persian style main dish;
  • One Persian style sweet along with the tea ceremony;
  • One Persian style traditional drink;
  • How to prepare Iranian style brewed tea with rose and orange petals, cinnamon, saffron or cardamom;
  • Persian Traditional/Medical Eating habits;
  • Preparing and smoking shisha;
