When one mentions Iran, the first images that come to mind are expansive sun-scorched deserts 🏜️ a warm Middle Eastern paradise. But did you know that Iran is a country that is blessed with four seasons and from the third week of December to the third week of March, many of its beautiful mountain ranges gather snow 🏔️ and host popular resorts for skiing ⛷️ enthusiasts? The most popular are the ski resorts tucked away in the mountain ranges of Zagros and Alborz. This is testament to the diverse topography of Iran and the avalanche of fun it can provide to people of diverse interests. Photos by the one and only Franz Scheurer.

While I think of myself as an Aussie, I’m also proud as punch of my Iranian heritage. So much so, in 2013, I created a business built around the mouth-watering delicacies of Persia; bringing you flavours of the real Iran. I wanted to create a space at the table for the golden-petaled spice: Persian Saffron.
