Dear friends, we had the pleasure of sharing our Yalda celebration in the December issue of Sunset Magazine. Thank you to everyone involved for making it such a bright and joyous evening.

This Yalda I leave you with some of the images from our Sunset shoot and a bright, refreshing Cranberry Orange Rose Sharbat. 





MUSIC WE'RE COOKING TO

Honey, the color of a California sunset. 

Fierce and unrelenting.

Cinnamon and cardamom, for warmth. 

To cut through the bitter bite of Jack Frost and all his generals.

Weavers of long tales. Casting shadows, fear, and hate. 

From the silk road to the New World.




Rose water, for love. 

Spun of silk and truth.

Fierce and unrelenting.



Oranges, a lantern to light the path. 


All the way from the silk road to the New World.  

Eviscerating the shadows, the dark and lonesome night. 





Crimson cranberries, for Yalda. 

For a new dawn. 

For peace. 

From the silk road to the New World. 

Fierce and unrelenting.






Wishing you a happy Yalda night.
