Nigel Slater ends his Middle Eastern adventure in Iran

Nigel Slater ends his Middle Eastern adventure in Iran.

The traditional breakfast of boiled sheep’s head may not be everyone’s heart’s desire, but Nigel assures us it tastes better than it looks!

After visiting a huge market and a pomegranate orchard he learns from his taxi driver how one of Iran’s favourite dishes, a lamb stew called Dizi, is lovingly and very slowly cooked.

A great end to a great series.

Please note, this programme airs at 9.30pm in N Ireland and Wales.
