Behnaz Amery

the chef and the founder

Behnaz grew up with Shole Zard recipe. Persians traditionally serve this dessert during their festivities and ceremonies. But she started making vegan saffron pudding dessert for her meditation circle in Canada.

When she moved to the US a few years ago she felt that saffron, Persians beloved spice, was left alone on grocery stores' shelves. So Behnaz has founded Zarparan to reintroduce saffron with her vintage recipe to the modern world.
