Pomegranate Soup by Marsha Mehran
The exotic Aminpour sisters flee Iran and settle in the small village of Ballinacroaph, County Mayo, where their red lentil soup, abjusht stew and rosewater baklava win over a merry band of supporters against the close-minded and resentful opposition. But, lives change, hearts are won over – and the two cultures unite.
“I picked this novel as a good way to end this year’s Everything Irish. It is not about the famine, the Irish Civil War or any other tragedies in Irish history; rather this is a charming novel about an Iranian refugee family who settles on the west coast of Ireland. The family decides on a wonderfully unique way to become part of the community: delicious Iranian food. Upliting and Charming.” -- Kathy
