Salamati: Hamed's Persian Kitchen

By Hamed Allahyari & Dani Valent • Photography by Armelle Habib


A heartwarming story of resilience, homesickness, and good Persian cooking in 70 accessible recipes

Hamed Allahyari cooks to connect—for that joyful moment you can say “salamati” (Farsi for “health” and “cheers”) around the table. The food of his native Tehran is a resonant and delicious gift, and a way of staying bonded to a country he hasn't returned to for a decade.

Hamed’s food is anchored in tradition but accessible to all. The recipes are simple, celebratory, appealing, flexible, and full of flavor. As well as working as a chef and caterer, Hamed has road-tested his dishes at hundreds of cooking classes: he melds Persian culinary culture and an understanding of Western palates to create recipes that are truly his—and now ours to share.

Beyond the recipes, Salamati is a gateway to Persia. “It’s sharing my culture,” says Hamed. “It’s my dream that everyone tries Persian food. And with my food, they come into my family. They are sitting with me, with my grandparents, parents, and cousins, talking, sharing, and enjoying the feeling of being together.”

“In this satisfying debut, chef Allahyari weaves together personal and culinary history with recipes that call forth the flavors of his native Tehran … Persian food’s zesty and herbaceous traits show in solid recipes … Endearing headnotes continue the thread of personal connection and also drop in cultural tidbits … The result is a fresh and heartfelt take on a storied cuisine with enduring appeal.”
