Jamjoji is a compilation of food memories and recipes that have been painstakingly collected from the Parsi community. Food is an integral part of Parsi culture. Many dishes have ceremonial value, while others simply reflect the mix of Persian, Indian and Colonial influences that have shaped the Parsi population.
In most cases these recipes are greatly treasured, and like family heirlooms were passed down from generation to generation. Some recipes were handed down through years of practice and careful instruction, others are scribbled in ageing recipe books and on pieces of paper.
As the diaspora spreads across the world, Jamjoji keeps the tradition of Parsi cooking alive by weaving food and narratives together, acting like a virtual scrapbook for stories and recipes.
