Yazd is well known for its large community of Zoroastrians in Iran and some of its most famous landmarks belong to this ancient Persian religion.
But if you’re curious to go beyond its fire temples and seek an in-depth cultural experience, spending a day around food with our Zoroastrians hosts is the way it to do it.
On this tour, you’ll be taken to the village of Taft, well known for its Zoroastrian community and fruit gardens. You’ll start the day with a short walk through Taft, making stops at the local bakery and grocery to shop for some ingredients. You’ll then head to a private garden where we’ll pick fruits and prepare a delectable traditional breakfast.
Once our stomachs are full, we’re ready to start cooking a whole Zoroastrian feast while being educated on the faith, its cultural traditions, and rituals – all happening in a beautiful garden.
