Rasht, the capital of the Gilan province, has always been a popular weekend gateway destination for Tehranis looking to try out the famous local cuisine. It is also the largest, and wettest town in the North region. Travellers use it as a base to explore the amazing Qal-eh Rudhkan and photogenic Masuleh.
According to some historical accounts, the city was originally built in the Sassanid era (226-651 CE) but did not find importance until the Safavid era (1501–1736 ) when it began to flourish under Shah Abbas (1571-1629). Rasht was occupied by Russian and later British forces in WWI when it became the birthplace of the Forest Movement (1914-1921) which sought to restore Iranian sovereignty.
Above all, gastronomy in Rasht has become the symbol of the region. Indeed, throughout the generations, Rashti cuisine has not only continued to promote ancient recipes but also provided unique new cooking utensils and methods.
