Anzali is the birth place of Alex Alinia, the founder and head chef at Anzali. He has learnt his trade through years of travelling across the globe and by watching his mother create amazing dishes at home. Alex believes Iranian food offers something really different from everything else, it’s combined well with balanced spiced but not spicy, it’s aromatic and complex yet it mainly uses regular ingredients you can find anywhere in the world.
Persian cuisine is sometimes confused with Middle Eastern cuisine, a much broader and more general term. It’s impressive how the ancient Persian culture and cuisine has influenced a number of different countries, from the fragrant spices used in Indian, the chargrilled methods in Greek and Turkish to Tapas in Spain and the herbal infusion of Italian cuisine. These influences are seen in its kebabs and other dishes due to cultural contacts with ancient Greeks and Turks.
