Persian Cooking

I am going to a Persian themed meal. Online it looks like all the dishes are stews and rice dishes. Anybody have any other more refined suggestions of what to make?

Anything with curry.

Curried chicken made with boiled coconut milk, apple, ginger, etc., and topped with toasted coconut, raisins, peanuts, green onion, a tbls. of chutney, all on a bed of rice.

...I could pass away happy after a meal of that!

I was just about to mention Duck Fessenjan! That is absolutely one of the tastiest diskes I have ever eaten. Totally haute Persian cuisine.

I know there are a lot of stews, but I'm partial to the kebabs, myself. and the pilaus.

I make an Armenian version of this with cumin, allspice and cayenne. Rather than kebobs, I make burgers.

I have some lamb breast that I cured. I am thinking I am going to cook that low and slow with some curry spices and serve it over some curry rice.
