Planning My 'Children of Heaven' Iranian Dinner

In looking over the recipes I've found on the Internet, I've discovered that all of the dishes I discussed with Ali last week are among them. So, whether I use the cookbook A Taste of Persia, or make the dishes using the Internet recipes, I am now familiar with Iranian cuisine and have a basic game plan for what I want to make. I'm going to follow the standard format of Appetizer, Soup, Salad, Main Course with vegetable and starch side dishes, and a dessert, which I will serve in sequential courses.
